Nordic spoof and training videos...

Post by JeffOYB » Tue Feb 07, 2012 1:58 pm

There's some funny new XC videos out there. Some are take-off's on the "Sh*t People Say." There's a "Recovery" spoof. Also a series of US Women's Team videos, a contest -- pretty inspiring. Looks like they're having fun. (I'll have our kids check em out.)

Any favorite new XC videos at YT?

In Norwegian, but I guess slapstick enough for all: :D

This video just released is causing quite a controversy, and just before the World Championships too. It's Swede Calle Halfvarsson and Robin Bryntesson having it at Norway.

It's made by a funny guy at Norwegian TV as a response to the rivalry with Sweden which Petter Northug put a sting into with his antics.

I think it's hilarious, but quite fruity with swearing and 'adult' references that some call 'sexist' and not suitable for children etc. Klæbo and others are not amused.



EDIT: Now with English subs

That "hate norway" video is totally lame. Embarrassing.

But the others are good!

There are some hilarious ones out there. Like the Ikea racers.

Klaebo sumo is pretty funny.

WTF did I just watch. We had a guy at the local shop. He used to ask some of the other racers what they ate before a race and they told him a pound of bacon and a 2 ltr bottle of coke. He did it and the results were not pretty.

Kuan will be happy his video is still getting airplay. I like the other one using power tools on the skis too. Forgetting the rifle, hah, that would be me.

50 km at Holmenkollen 1959:



Winning time was 3:18:46

Quite fun to see. Notice the 'home made' single track through bumpy woods. Not too much snow either.

The old style double poling bending the upper body almost 90° is unique for the era. Also how they sort of point the poles ahead before implant. I can still see some old-timers doing this even now when I'm out skiing.

They are served soup in the cups there.

Notice the huge crowds. Tens of thousands. Holmenkollen Ski Festival is in Norway like the Super Bowl in USA.

Btw, the reason for the short pants/long sock outfit of the time was due to clothing material for pants was expensive and wool yarn for socks cheap when people were dirt poor in the olden days, and then it stayed the fashion for decades after that. Can still see some with it even now.
