DutchAmsterdam — Technically it’s still winter, of course, but today the sun is shining and the deep freeze that had all the Netherlands in its grip for a week or so is only a memory.
While it is still cold, the weather in Amsterdam currently is normal for this time of the year — and the weather forecast calls for more of the same.
With that in mind, here we present one more video of the ice skating fun we Amsterdammers had last week:
The video, produced by Yoran Staas of YESimages, is shown in 8mm retro style – like an old 20’s movie.
Staas says he was inspired by the black-and-white Dutch TV commercials for Old Amsterdam cheese. Those ads featured a song by Flemish artist Kris de Bruyne. Click the link to view those commercials — along with a translation of the song’s lyrics.
