Move out of the way!

I have to get to work!


I'm taking an advance for next month,

old timer.

-Is your money already spent?

-What do you think?

-Thanks, old timer.


-Hi Mom.

-Bye son.

What are you laughing at?

Come on.

Thanks dad!


...Gerrit Witkamp together with his wife...

...she, with her splendid villa blahblahblah...


Is the sound alright?

It's okay..

Fine with me.

Good, let's get started!

So guys, as soon as he steps out the door,

let's show a little enthousiasm, right?

4... 3... 2... 1

Let's go!

# Here's Gerrit Witkamp,

the national dirt bike champion... #

# ...with his wife Hilde,

cheered on by his adoring fans! #

Camera two, zoom in!

Witkamp, Witkamp!

-Good morning Gerrit, hello Hilde...

-Hello Frans.


We're told you're actually a dentist, is this

true or just a rumor spread by your sponsor?

It's true,

I graduated at Utrecht.

But you haven't practiced much lately,

have you?

You don't lose a skill like that though,

shall I demonstrate?

This should be good guys,

a demonstration by a dentist...

...who's about to become the dirt bike

world champion. Do we have a volunteer?

Eef! How about Eef,

his teeth are already fucked up!

Nothing wrong with my teeth.

Open your mouth...


There's a hole in one of the molars.

Drop by sometime, I'll treat you for free.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to

introduce you to some of Gerrit's fans...

First of all,

who do we have here?

Eef De Wit, car mechanic.

I'm nineteen.

And you?


I'm twenty and a carpenter.

Right, and you?

I'm Hans,

also twenty and also a carpenter...

(Surinam accent) And what are we sure about?

Gerrit will be the champion!

Witkamp, Witkamp!!

Hey, how do you like the enthusiasm of your fans?

Wonderful. I would love to be the champion,

just to please my fans.

You heard it!

Gerrit promises to be the champion!

Now I'm asking you, what do you think

will make Gerrit the world champion?

He's got the best gear, all of it Japanese!

It's just great stuff!

It's not about the gear,

it's about the man driving it.

That's what I like to hear

It's all about the human factor in sport.

That's right! I drive a piece of junk myself,

but I'll win tomorrow for sure!

Ah, you're a dirt bike racer yourself?

Yes, I'm only an amateur

but that will change soon.

He's won a few times already.

You heard it Gerrit,

the competition is coming for you...

Do you know about this boy?

Sure, his name is Rien Hartman.

Yes! Is he talented?



He's extremely talented,

he might be one of the greats!

What about me? I'm a biker too!

-...Hey Gerrit, I wanted to ask you a question...

...I believe that champions

can help advance the sport...

Look, the sport has to appeal to a wider audience...


-Yes, talent will emerge eventually...

Hey Gerrit, thanks for the interview...

Ok guys, it's a wrap. Let's go.

Hey baby


You're up early today?

I have to work on my bike.

I need some floor cover.

Behind you.

-Will I see you tonight?

-For sure.

My parents are going camping in their caravan.

We've got the place to ourselves...

-I'm going to the counter...

-Yes, I'm coming.

Will that be all?

Some chewing gum.

Allright, that will be 24,50.

Here's 25,

keep the change, honey.

You're so sweet.

My my, aren't you clever.

-Forgot about those, had you?

-They're from home.

-With our pricetags on them?


They're paid for.

Yes, allright!

Hey guys!

Watch out now,

little Hans.

My balls...

Here, catch this.

...All of it nicked from my old man...
