SORRY (2010) displays an oppressive scene in a recreated ICE wagon with a single constant camera position. It is a situation that is immediately familiar: a crowded train, all seats are occupied, and the modest luggage racks hopelessly overcrowded. In search of a niche, more and more people are pushing their way through the narrow aisle and back as it doesn't seem to be any better in the back of the car. Along with them they drag XXL coffee mugs and mostly bizarre luggage. The travelers in Panhans' work also appear familiar, as they depict the doppelgangers of various celebrities. The singer Amy Winehouse, the fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, the artist Jonathan Meese, the singer Bill Kaulitz (Tokio Hotel) and - even several times - the actor Johnny Depp appear. The presence of Lara Croft and SWAT officers in full gear lend the scene an absurd and oppressive surreality. The only spoken word in the video is a short "Sorry" from Johnny Depp, when he accidentally bumps into Bill Kaulitz and apologizes.
