The “ZDF Fernsehgarten” celebrated a big anniversary on Sunday, the 600th edition was staged. As usual, Andrea Kiewel moderated. Well-known guests like Alphaville and Culcha Candela shouldn’t be enough for this occasion, rather the broadcasters had come up with a special show insert: Five airplanes provided a befitting “TV garden” lettering in the sky.

However, the action was met with rejection from many viewers. On Twitter, users denounced the spectacle in clear terms.

“ZDF Fernsehgarten” collects Shitstorm

“It’s called skytexting,” beamed the moderator. As the organizer explained to her, the message of the airplanes is made possible by expelled paraffin. It is said that no environmentally harmful residues remain, but the audience in front of the television could hardly be mollified. “And all this for this crap ?!” Asks an outraged user, for example.

“Far too much money for big crap!”, This viewer also thinks. He also points to the fact that Andrea Kiewel is flown in from Tel Aviv for each “TV Garden” edition, which shouldn’t exactly contribute to a positive CO2 balance. The 57-year-old goes to Mainz on Sundays and back the same day. “And then the planes with characters, absolute no go!! Cancel the show!“, is now being demanded in a tough manner:

Elsewhere you can read: “Fridays for Future is going crazy with the silly sightseeing flights.” There must be something to it…

And this user only recognizes “meaningless signs” in the sky:

The Greta Thunberg meme “How dare you?” fits here particularly well. “Five planes next to each other fart out exhaust fumes for advertising messages”, this user teases on top of that. His obviously ironic conclusion: “Super sustainable”.

Too much excitement about the “TV Garden”?

In connection with the anniversary campaign, the platform repeatedly mentions Kiewel’s flights from Israel to Germany solely for the “TV Garden” – so the frustration builds up over the weeks. However, there are also people on Twitter who find all the fuss a bit exaggerated in the end. “Germany is escalating because the ‘Fernsehgarten’ writes a few letters in the sky. And I thought we had real worries“, says this comment:
