We are talking about a TikTok video from the CSU with party leader Markus Söder.
CSU TikTok clip causes irritation: young women, Markus Söder and "The Bad Touch"
The video was eight seconds long and was supposed to advertise a question and answer session with Prime Minister Söder on the platform.
The clip initially showed young women looking obviously surprised and then a hard cut to Söder, who was sitting at a desk.
The song "The Bad Touch" by the Bloodhound Gang played in the background.
The song is about the singer's unequivocal and offensive request to a woman for sex.
This had caused critical voices and outrage on social networks.
#Duet with @CSU Uh... thought like this: "Ahjo, the party again, or Titantic? Walulis? Show today? ... wait... what!?"

"The word cringe was invented for the CSU's TikTok account": Söder video irritated
"The word cringe was invented for the CSU's TikTok account.
Young women turn around panting because they see Markus Söder.
Plus The Bad Touch by Bloodhound Gang,” someone ironically commented on the clip.
"Oh dear, this internet still seems to be new territory for Söder and the CSU," said another person.
"Is this real?" asked another Twitter user, almost in disbelief.
"There's just no one who can speak English and check what the song is about," wrote one person about salmon smiles, adding "Bayern" ironically.

CSU TikTok video causes a stir: "How terrible is THAT?"
“By the way, the flickering of the image is unintentional.
It's created because the frame rate can't stand the level of embarrassment," joked one Twitter user.
"Oh you s***.
How terrible is THAT?” asks another person.
"What the hell?" can also be read.
"Okay, that's creepy.
But you probably just can't count on the fact that Josef (67), who is responsible for this Tiktok, also speaks English," jokes another.
That is Markus Söder's career
The CSU posted a video with Prime Minister Markus Söder on TikTok some time ago. “I want cell phone bans” was just one of the negative reactions.

CSU causes a stir with TikTok video: Söder party declares itself
However, Josef, who was jokingly brought into play, was not responsible.
"The ironically intended clip was posted on the party's Tiktok channel by the young social media team of the state leadership.
The party chairman was not aware of this," said a CSU spokesman on Wednesday, January 25, when asked by the German Press Agency.
After the party leadership found out about the video, "an immediate deletion was initiated".
"Should there have been any misunderstandings or injuries, we very much regret it."
