6 Million Hits On Norwegian Television

From Michael Booth's The Almost Nearly Perfect People, c. 2014, page 200:
In fact, Danish -- in particular what the Swedes and Norwegians claim is its declining intelligibility, with the Danes apparently slurring and swallowing even more of their words, and employing even more glottal stops as time passes -- in increasingly the butt of jokes throughout Scandinavia. As improbable as this may sound, one of the funniest TV comedy sketches I have ever seen featured two Norwegian comedians from the show Uti var Hage pretending to be Danes trying to communicate with each other.

It's good the first time; great, the second time; and, perhaps the best thing I've seen in years after watching it a third time. A little Finlandia while watching it will make it even funnier.
