VisitDenmark anyone?

ok, sometimes, denmark really makes me laugh. the sense of humor and the creativity among advertising people in this country is astounding. take this case, of a danish tourism video released by VisitDenmark which was recently pulled from you tube (but not before it had 800,000 hits) on the grounds that it promoted promiscuity. i got it (via twitter) from the BBC website. and it really made me laugh. i really wonder who thought this would sell people on the notion of visiting this little country...



and it has spawned some seriously hilarious creative video responses. this one from the perspective of "august," the baby in the video who is all grown up 25 years later.



this is seriously funny stuff. and there's way more on you tube.

Two thoughts.

Today, everything's just too serious.

Blame it on Modern furniture.

Well a 3rd one too.

Where is that water place?

Ah, love springs eternal! Interesting that they did this as a tourism ad. Are there any 50ish Danish men making these ads? Hee hee!

Like Tara, I would like to know how to spell "huga." I think that I can guess the meaning, though!
