Ivan Mladek isn't from Poland. He is from Czech Republic.I have no idea why everyone thinks he is Polish. And he sings in czech, polish sounds differently.

Ivan Mladek may lately be mistaken for being from Poland, because of the recent enormous popularity of "Jozin z bazin" among Polish internauts ;] but his definetely a Czech.

The table set uses a production BMW brake disc and oil filter

Pietryq, probably you're right. I"m from Poland and I know that everyone knows "Jozin..". There is also polish version of this song, made by Kabaret Pod Wyrwigroszem with alternative lyrics about polish politicians. If you are interested in: http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=v0eHLz1H-aE
It sounds funnier if you know polish, understand lyrics and notice their strong accent.

I wanna know about the instrument that the crazy guy is playing in the czeck video. It's like an eastern-bloc talk-box!

What about the hole ? where is it ? Is it a fake hole of a green ?

I think the last picture must be a later satire. Much of the clothing actually reflects styles that were popular at various times in the latter part of the 19th century.

Do any of you remember "Twin Peaks"? And the dancing midget who talked backwards? The guy on the right, in the Czech video is as horridly fascinating to watch. Just to terrible to talk my eyes off him
