Bathroom Walls

Jean-Remy von Matt is head of the Jung von Matt ad agency which concieved the "Du bist Deutschland" campaign. A lot of German bloggers have expressed the opinion that the campaign is baloney, and so it's no surprise that Herr von Matt doesn't like weblogs:

Nico Lumma is only too happy to oblige big media types, so just for Herr von Matt he presents the site, which is basically with a bathroom wall skin.

*Translator's note: the German original uses the verb 'absondern', which is a new word for me. It means to secrete, excrete or lactate, but also means to separate. It may have a slang meaning which I'm totally missing.
