English translation:The company makes you thirsty for more
Explanation:
Durst auf mehr machen is similar to the English expressions whets your appetite or it tastes like more. But here we're talking about thirst instead of appetite.

"Hungry for more"


Explanation:
I know the text is referring to thurst.............but its a selling-thing at the same time. I would say Hungry for More because Its what the origin tells..............even if it is macabre!!!!
