I’m beginning to really like the Finns. They seem to have a twisted sense of humor from the Porkka Playboys who play Bohemian Rhapsody in an old Volkswagon in the middle of a meadow to the Helsinki Complaint Choir to the Finnair crew who do a Bollywood musical number in the aisles of a plane.
Since I cut the cord on satellite, I’ve been surfing youtube for interesting things to watch and I haven’t been disappointed. My latest discovery is a Finnish series with an ensemble cast called The People’s Party, which has problems that seem eerily familiar, like a tendency to wordsmithing. The People’s Party is a group that meets every Friday to formulate a response to the ruling party’s latest moves.
This episode is called Forcing People. If you like it, there’s a ton of episodes online. Enjoy!:
