Finnish Culture 101.

February 24th, 2009 by Jarmo Puskala

From the depths of YouTube comes a subtitled version of a classic sketch from one of the greatest tv shows Finland has ever produced, Studio Julmahuvi.

This pretty much shows sums up the whole of Finnish culture and Finnish movie culture of the 70′s/80′s in four minutes and 16 seconds.

What I don’t know if this will be funny to anyone who is not Finnish, but hey, at least it’s educational. This really is a case of “it’s funny ’cause it’s true”. What you see in the video is certain to happen in every rural community in Finland at least once a year.

If you’re Finnish you already know that. And you’ve propably already seen this. But hey, it’s good enough to watch again, right?
