FactsDocumentary, 56 min, 2015

Friedrich Liechtenstein came to fame through his "Supergeil" commercial for the German discounter Edeka. This portrait shows the man behind the 12 million Youtube hits. Born in Stalinstadt (today: Eisenhüttenstadt) in GDR, he started as a puppet player, became an underground theatre director, then self declared pop star, almost went to the dogs as an ornamental hermit in Berlin before accidentally becoming a top celebrity.
