Otto Waalkes is a goofy looking and very popular German standup comedian, who has also directed, written and starred in a number of very silly films in which he plays a bumbling, wacked-out Frisian. Frisians are to "regular" Germans what Newfoundlanders are to other Canadians, the Irish are to the English, etc. In other words, they are the regular butt of jokes about how clueless they are. In this particular film, Otto travels the globe to save Frisia from being paved over by the German military-industrial complex. This involves his visiting the set of Miami Vice, interfering with Steffi Graff at a tennis match, etc.
