In the black and white original, filmed in 1963, Miss Sophie celebrates her 90th birthday with four imaginary guests as butler James darts around the table, pretending to be each of them and downing their drinks, becoming increasingly inebriated in the process.

The skit, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8kj4JBf-W0, made for German broadcaster ARD and titled "The 90th euro rescue summit or euros for no one", has the heads of the German chancellor and French president superimposed over the original actors.

This time the imaginary dinner companions include former Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
