Welcome to the first, and almost certainly last, article on “Yet Another Reason To Love The Swedes”.

There are many reasons that we love the Swedes, Sverker Lindbo, Martin Alsen, ABBA, Nobelpriset (Nobel Piece Prize), pickled herring (I can’t prove that pickled herring originated in Sweden, but work with me). Well we can now add another item to the list.

This clip from Knäckebröddansen Talang 2009. Now keep in mind that this is from a show that was televised in Sweden. ON THE AIR. Can you imagine the cries of outrage that would ensue if this was ever on network television in the U.S.? Never happen. Seriously, what a great clip. I can not imagine the uptight American population ever allowing this on TV. <sigh>

  1. I can't decide which is better, the cartwheel at the end, or that the used the song "kung fu fighting". :)

    I love the judge on the left, at the end he says "we don't need to talk so much, lets just vote."
