Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

Keep cool, Frau Hansen, keep cool! Just checking the screeching sound!

Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel just made a spot for a German tire dealer giving customers a wild test ride in their own cars - disguised as a fat mechanic.

No one recognizes Vettel wearing a beard and the typical German mechanic VoKuHiLa haircut - short for Vorne kurz, hinten lang aka. short in the front, long at the back, also known as the Bundesliga hairstyle. And he even acts as a real mechanic greeting his female customer “ Mmmh, that’s your car, Frau Hansen? Beautiful! And the car is nice, too!”

He takes the customer's car for a spin with the owner by his side then has the nerve to tell her the problem is that the tires make a screeching sound. They wouldn’t normally, of course.

Just look at the guy's face when he shouts at Vettel. He is not complaining about his life being put in danger, he’s got different priorities. “ Slow down! I have new tires on!”

The final scene rocks. I'm sure Vettel looking into the camera saying “ Keep cool, Frau Hansen, keep cool!” will become a classic.
