MVO1: From people to beer, Atlanta's a city of imports. And as you may know Heineken is imported to Atlanta from Amsterdam. But as it turns out Amsterdam has been importing a little bit of Alanta as well.

MVO3: Johannes, those clogs are crunk, yo.

MVO2: Ya.

MVO3: What are ya’ll up to, Playa?

MVO2: I just returned from my trip to Atlanta and now I’m chilling back here in
Amsterdam, you know, The A.M.S.

MVO2: Ya. I just tricked out my bicycle as well. 12 inch rims, Matthias.

MVO3: Spinners?

MVO2: Ya.

MVO3: Have you noticed that Kaatje van Buren has been looking off the heezy fa- sheezy
as of late?

MVO2: Ya. Fa-sheezy.

FVO: Pardon me, may I take all ya’lls order?

Brief Explanation

This radio spot was one of two Heineken spots that aired in specific regional American markets
to illustrate Heineken's relationship with that city. This spot aired in the Southern American city,
Atlanta, Georgia, and the Dutch characters in it are speaking with very precise Atlanta hip-hop
slang terms. For instance, Atlanta is commonly referred to as "The A.T.L." and "scattered,
smothered and covered" is a common way to order breakfast food. The South is also called “The Dirty South" or simply, "The Dirty Dirty."
