German Chancellor Gets Beer Shower Courtesy of Clumsy Waiter

waiter spills beer on German Chancellor Angela Merkel

On any given day, there is a lot of pressure on a waiter or waitress not to spill trays of food and drink as they hurry around a crowded restaurant. When you’re serving at an event filled with dignitaries, that pressure is even greater. Just ask Martin, a waiter in Germany who spilled beer on the Chancellor.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was at the Christian Democratic Union’s Ash Wednesday meeting in Demmin, sitting down with colleagues to share a meal. Martin, a waiter who was doing a favor for a waitress who was too nervous to serve the Chancellor, approached her with a tray containing seven glasses of beer.

As he bent to serve a glass to her, he lost control of the tray and spilled the remaining six glasses of beer down her back. “I was shoved from behind, and tried to catch the beers, but it was too late,” he said.

The Chancellor reacted with brief shock and then maintained her composure and continued to smile for cameras. She even got up later and gave her speech in her beer soaked jacket. Watch the hilariously unfortunate incident below.
