Jebroer then runs off, after which so-called agents start the pursuit. In doing so, apparent speeds of 200 kilometers per hour are achieved. Other traffic rules are also violated.
"We would like to emphasize that it was never the intention of the clip to promote traffic insecurity or to discredit the police," said management.
"As far as this has happened, we regret this.The purpose of the video was to bring the new single from Jebroer to the attention with good intentions and in a creative way."
'Fictitious speeds are later in the picture'
According to the management, the clip was recorded "in all enthusiasm, with the correct permits and with the knowledge of the police".
"Unfortunately, in that enthusiasm certain agreements have not been fulfilled and we regret that, for example, two actors in a civilian police suits on the public road, something that should not have happened, and we take responsibility for driving through red and the right. turn over the drive surface. "
That speeds of 200 kilometers per hour would be achieved, however, is not correct. "These fictitious speeds are later mounted in the image, and it is also incorrect that police cars were used on public roads without permission from the police, as the images in the parking garage were shot with permission and under the watchful eye of the police. "
Police asked Jebroer to make adjustments in clip
A spokesperson for the police informed NU.nl that in a conversation with the management they were asked to make some adjustments in the clip. "For example by visualizing a text at the beginning of the clip showing that there is fiction and that only actors can be seen."
However, the management was not prepared to make adjustments, according to the spokesman. "The police regrets that and is now still considering taking measures."
Jebroer wants "in any case" to continue the positive discussion about safe traffic in the Netherlands in a positive way. "More about this later", according to his management.
