Well I guess that German course in highschool can come in handy right about now :).
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Hehe,

I'm also wondering: there are some screenshots from the cell phase that shows a very yellow backdrop, as opposed to the blue one we seem to be seeing in this video, so is this phase the real 3d from the planet and will it be different on every planet that we individually choose ?

The Nazis stole and ruined Roman salutes. It's considered bad to do Roman salutes in public now because people think it's Nazi.
My predictions for Spore.

1) No water creatures at initial release. I was right about this even when the fanboys were denying it.
2) No composite limbs at initial release. eg. Buttface; attaching a limb to a limb to... Update: Prediction was incorrect. Buttface is in!
3) Spore will outsell the Sims and be the best selling game of all time until something better comes along.

Well, someone who is a fluent german and english speaker could translate it over.
I think I'll try.

Epic creature, perhaps?

that symbol says 'Danger, danger, Will (W)Robinson!' to me.

It looks like the jumpy/glidey thing is true. Just after the big creature kills the other and the creature we're watching goes to scavenge the corpse, in the background on the left hand side just after the dead creatures foot you see a creature doing a double jump and gliding kirby style

Translation of the introduction and the cell phase:

"Attention: Quick question: Who is that?
Well, not the woman on the left. That's Jeanette Biedermann, but she's unimportant at the moment. I mean the man with the funny haircut and the ... umm ... smart facial expression. I'll give you a hint: He invented two big game series: Namely Sim City and the Sims. You guessed it, right? Sure, that spectacle wearer is Will Wright in his capacity as famous developer and visionary, and his newest creation is called "Spore"!.
In this evolution simulator you're playing the life of a self-made life-form, namely in five phases: Cell, creature, tribal, civilisation and space.
For the first three parts, I'll show you some moving pictures. Of course it starts with the cell phase.
Interestingly, it starts where Spore will end later: in space! Namely with a comet. The interstellar chunk of ice flies past the sun and is on target for a planet. Why? Because the comet sows life, namely micro organisms, which will cavort and spread on the target planet from now on.
Your first fosterling will emerge from a part of the celestial body too. This one you may tinker in an editor before. How that works, I'll show you soon. I decided for a ... black thing with bug eyes here. With my amoeba, I'm paddling through the primordial ooze now and have to do one thing above all: eating. Game-play wise it reminds a little bit of pacman: My beastie munches green lumps and gets gradually fatter and bigger. This way I'm also piling DNA points up, which I'll spend for upgrades later.
Bigger beasties I should avoid at all costs, otherwise my amoeba will be become prey itself, such as this buddy, who's fate is shown in a short sequence. This both makes sense and is useful, because he loses my first genetic component, which I grab immediately. Great! Now I can arm my protozoa with spikes.
So I'm opening the editor, in which I created my protozoa before. Here I'm trading DNA points for upgrades, but also I'm changing the look of my fosterling. Let's see... The tail fin will be relocated this way, a little bit enlarged. Moreover this beastie is too plump and too black for me. Thus changing width and colour, best into an umm ... eye-friendly ... magenta. Well now a spike will be mounted, so that I can attack and eat other amoebas. Eating vegetarian all the time is boring too. Finally some new eyes and a mouth, otherwise it couldn't eat.
And finally my new protozoa hatches from the egg and can sting other animals. For that, skill is needed, because I have to aim precisely. Then that's no problem anymore, but uh... I still have to watch out for bigger beasties, but they shall just wait and see! My little beastie will continue feeding and growing and sometime it'll take over the world."

Translation of the creature and tribal part coming soon. :P

I think that's a frowny face.  If you look at some of the other screenshots, it seems that selecting another creatures shows a happy face or frowny face, perhaps depending upon whether or not they're friendly towards your creature/tribe?

That makes sense, there is even a "like" meter to the left.
i think. what we need is an official vid from some developers with extreme quality.
