Trivia

Narrator Egon Hoegen is very well known in Germany as the voice of the education series Der 7. Sinn (1966) which gives tips for correct behavior in road traffic. By using this voice at the beginning, it gives the feeling of an authentic safety video for people raised in Germany. See also trivia for Starship Troopers (1997). See more »

Hilarious - yet educational
4 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

We watched this on vocational school (logistics line) yesterday and everyone laughed like hell.

We were expecting a boring, typical 70-80's educational video with an old dusty narrator in the background, and that's how it pretty much started. Then, after few gory details what not to do, everyone's interest rose up and most of the class started laughing in tears.

Everything in this video matches up, the music, actors, the setting - every part just makes this a great educational video, which really makes you learn what not to do with a forklift.

I just wish all of 'em videos were like this.
