An alleged pressure from Turkey so that Germany removes a satirical video aired by NDR a few weeks ago had a surprising effect.

The result was not what Erdogan intended. Following the publicity the video had, its producers decided to amplify the message by releasing the English subtitled version of the video.

The Video is a satire piece titled “Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan” which criticizes the Turkish President. The video is also focused on the alleged tampering of electoral votes, the lavish living of the Turkish president, the alleged sympathy for the Islamic State terror group in Syria or the billion Euro deals with Europe to keep migrants at bay.

What is known by the Streisand effect* is making the video viral, with the English version of the video on YouTube receiving over 4.1 million views in a week's time.

* The Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide or censor some information has the unintended consequence of wider publicizing it.
