    Important info missing: those two ladies in the video are actually COUSINS of Eddie and Alex. The Asian one looks a bit like him, you can tell that they're related. In the comments section of VHND, someone posted a translation:

    Translation (apologies for my mistakes in grammar and wording. I'm Dutch!):
    Presenter: "Every year, the music of Eddie van Halen is present on the dutch Top 2000 list of all time. He plays a solo on Michael Jackson's 'beat it' and had hits like 'jump' and ' runnin' with the devil' with his own hardrock band Van Halen. And how strange is ist to think, that a band that sold 80 million albums worldwide, lived here, at De Rozemarijnstraat number 59 in Nijmegen. Even more strange though, that I'm standing here with two full cousins of Eddie and Alex van Halen, Liz and Joyce Schiefink."
    Cousin (blond): "That's right, we lived at number 49 and Alex, Edward, my uncle and aunt lived at number 59
    Presenter: " How bizarre is it, to be standing here with two full cousins of the Van Halen brothers. I think we should see if anyone is at home at number 59"
    Cousin: "It would be very nice to see the home, because we haven't been there for years!"
    Presenter: " May we come in?"
    Girl living in the house: "Of course you may."
    Presenter: "Do you know you're living on sacred ground?"
    Girl: "No I don't."
    Presenter: " There's a hardrock band in the United States. Have you ever heard of Van Halen?"
    Girl: "To be honest, no."
    Presenter: "You're probably far too young for that! 'Jump', let's see what we've got more, 'runnin' with the devil', the solo in the song 'beat it' of Michael Jackson"
    Girl: "Oh yes, I know that one."
    Presenter: "And do you know who playes the solo? This gentleman."......"Couls they come in with me?"
    Girl: "Of course!"
    Presenter to the cousins: "Are you coming with me?"
    Girl: "And this is my sleeping room."
    Presenter: "And how does it feel for the both of you te be standing here?"
    Cousin (blond): "Actually, it is incredible."
    Cousin (dark): "For sure, back then, we were much smaller and younger, but it's very nice to see all of this this again."
    Cousin (blond): "We still got pictures of celebrating 'Sinterklaas' in this home, with Alex on it." (Note 1: ' Sinterklaas' is a specific Dutch version of Santa Claus on December 5th. Note 2: Eddie is NOT on the picture that is shown.)
    Presenter: "So there is even a picture of 'Sinterklaas' in the living room and Alex!" Cousins laugh.
    Presenter: "What did father Jan van Halen think of the hardrock band Van Halen? Could he appreciate the musical direction of his sons?"
    Cousin (blond): "Well...(laughs)"
    Presenter: "You can be absolutely honest! Tell us all!"
    Cousin (blond): "(laughs) And then I'll be the one that everybody blames! (Serious I know aunt Otje told my mother once, that it was not the musical direction they wanted, because they wanted them to go to the classical music school. So, hardrock, is something completely different. I think, both their parents had to get used to the idea.(......) I like pop music, but hardrock is a bit too loud. The music is not exactly my cup of tea, but of course, it's nice and i'm very proud. The are my nephews!"
    Presenter: "I'll count 'til three and then we go. One, two, three!"

    Btw, this Dutch girl should be ashamed of not knowing about VH, EVH should be a national hero over there!

    I like what the automatic translator did with this one: "and brother Alex runs each party on the Sunset Strip off."
