I LOVE SWEDEN!

The Naked Crisp Bread Dance can be read about in English here and viewed below. Things I particularly love: the thick dialects the guys sport, the music medley they dance to, that the judges all voted "yes", that they use genuine crisp bread rounds from the north of Sweden and that the audience chanted "ONE MORE TIME" in Swedish after the dance.

I miss home...

Who would have thought that crispbread can be so tasty... ;-)

I just love that they had THIS in their talent show, with kids watching and all. It really says something about Sweden...

It would have been perfectly acceptable in the Netherlands as well.

You don't want to know what kind of programs are acceptable in Dutch TV, some of them are downright tasteless (and I'm not talking about Big Brother, which you'd think would be the ultimate in tastelessness).

OMG!! Fantastic!

I'm still wiping tears from my eyes...

(Robin's apartment in central Stockholm is actually quite gorgeous and not to be looked down upon! It is from 1700'eds with genuine wooden floors and period kilns..)

yeah, socialism is gloomy like that!

If they would have shot the video in the summer, it would have been even more rad with all those half naked people everywhere...

LOL! That is awesome. So, there was only one old woman in the crowd who didn't like what the boys were doing it seems! :))

I think those kids were a little nervous, and they need a little more coordination! :-)

hehe..I noticed the elderly lady..but you know, it might just be that her eyes weren't that good, because her husband sure liked the show!

(I think the lads are honing their act for the world premiere as we speak)

I'm researching the word back to it's origins! (it's claimed to have started there, but I found no visual blurb evidence)

This is more modern:

I always thought it was a creation of the 17th-century Comte de Bobo, myself!

Okay, this isn't really helping your case
that Swedish men *aren't* always running
around naked.

I loved the spare bread toss!

Also, I think you've made me a little gay
for Swedish men...

Nudity is way more accepted in general (and particularly on film), but in reality it's way way too cold to run around like that most of the year in Sweden.

If you really become gay, you can go to Sweden and get married!

We saw it when it aired, I haven't laughed that much in AGES. :D

Plus, I was REALLY hoping they'd put those holes to good use, but alas.

ARGh (stupid typo fingers)

SORRY! perhaps I should have written something about "not work safe", but on the other hand, the "naked" part of the dance descriptions did give you some warning...
