As usual we have a word in German that perfectly describes what we witnessed tonight.

It's called "Fremdschämen" and it's the vicarious embarrassment you get when you see something so deeply mortifying, you feel embarrassed just watching it.

The literal translation from the German word as 'vreemdschamen' sounds interesting and almost Afrikaans :)
