In 1995 André Rieu appeared in a TV commercial for Bavaria malt beer (alcohol free beer).
Why is he driving a steam roller? In the Dutch language the words for a steam roller
and a waltz are the same: "wals".
André van Duin in his role of “Gerard van Bezij”. 1996.
As a result of this commercial he also receives Mr. Gerard van Bezij at his home (comedian André van
Duin) for a violin lesson. Did you ever see André playing a saw? This is your chance!
Why is Mr. van Bezij interested in André's garage? Have a look at this very funny interview from 1996!
Some of you may recall that André van Duin (as “Mr. Wijdbeens”) also appeared in André's concert in the
Amsterdam ArenA in 2009. (Click: http://www.andrerieumovies.com/misc/golden_oldies_1.htm )
