the same reason any music videos are made, i assume

to showcase the whimsical and sometimes deeply profound nature of musical art through unorthodox film techniques which often result in an unsettling feeling for the viewer. Music and film are very different and trying to portray the oft-misunderstood capability of music through another familiar medium is a good way to open people's minds to the possible influence of art.

Nope, it was to promote their (I think comedic) talkshow.

P.S.: They are norwegian, just saying

I don't know if Americans and Germans have the same stereotypes about Norwegians, or any other nationality for that matter. Care to enlighten us?

I'm not sure about stereotypes about Norwegians? I mean, they live in the north, it's cold up there and, uh, maybe something something vikings? Uh, something something sauna?

Seriosly, I don't know, most of my knowledge about Skandinavia comes from the webcomic SAWT

But if you have any questions about any other countries, feel free to ask, I'll answer it if I know anything

The way you said it just seemed to imply that it was based of off a stereotype. As in, "Oh, you know those crazy Norwegians".

Oh, uh, no, I just meant it like "And by the way, they are Norwegian"
Though I guess the skandinavians can be a little odd at times, then again, who isn't

Uh, so if everyone is a little odd, especially other muricans, why would you say that muricans are the only ones that aren't a little odd?

hypocrisy is just 'MURIKA spelled backwards. Look at the word in a mirror and think about your local Congress representative and/or senator.

SURE, BLAME THE PARK RANGER FOR THE FUCKING GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHIT.

Just a quick note, I don't consider myself Democratic or Republican. I'd rather think things through one issue at a time and form my own opinion of each one, regardless of what the party line is. Overall, I guess people would consider me moderate, but a little left-leaning.

So. Guys. Battles today? Y naut? It's not like I even enjoy them that much (stupid 3 on 3...) but I feel bad not using my rain team when I can. I love my rain team <3

(P.s hanky left in 'Murica is center in secular Europe, just adding that)

That's because of all this crazy far right-wing shit going on here that skews the average person's ideas of left and right, though.

Basically, our political system is majorly screwed up right now. Can we come live with you European people?

I do have one, but it may be expired. And I just said Europe, not necessarily the UK (although they would probably be my first pick). And besides, it was a joke. Those happen on the internet.

Of course :)the only entrance qualifications in coming to Ireland are

1) buy rounds when it's your turn if IsInPub = True
2) do not claim Irish heritage, it's weirdly demeaning
3) "Areland" not "eye-err-land", yet "Eye-rish" not "are-ish"
4) do not assume we know/care about anything that interests you, ever, ever. Actually this is true for every country that exists ever, for all visitors, ever.

And you'll be welcome with open arms! And probably a pub invitation.
(Deep down Ireland craves America's attention. A bit like a clingy puppy. This causes inward resentment, so we get dismissive over the USA to make ourselves feel better. It's rather sad but it's never personal. We love you guys really.)
I cannot speak for other European nations. Where'd  OJ go?

Edit: UK first. I take it back, geddout! Psssh anyone who knows anything knows that anything the UK can do we can do better U~U except for London. We don't have that. And also monuments. Ours aren't as big. And cheeses, we don't really have a lot of home grown cheeses. And they get bigger colleges. But on average we have the same quality of education. Oh, and economy. Ours is shitty. And weather. We get less of everything in exchange for marginally more rain. And probably music, but they've got simon cowell which is probably a blessing in disguise. Oh, and television. We get all the good stuff from them. And numbers, the UK gets more stuff like Pokemon events because they have more people. And faster internet speeds. And our health system, while cheap, is also kinda cheap. You won't die though, at least not probably. And our science programmes aren't nearly as good. We don't get snakes here. I consider that a bad thing, garden snakes are cool. Oh, Harry Potter. We don't really have that. Or Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams. We have dead poets though.
But. Like.
Everything else.
So way better here.
Really.
Sad

P.S hanky, culturally UK isn't European. They're their own entity. Blame the Empire.

I'd invite you guys to Straya, but we just managed to elect a member of the Motoring Enthusiasts Party to our Senate.

(Also tech stuff is really expensive here)

Oh yeah you guys have parties for basically everything Very Happy it's simultaneously great and weird! We have two parties with identical politicians and ideals and policies and tactics and they are mortal enemies, and that's it really. We vote for whichever one didn't screw up most in the last three years.

Unless you're old then you always vote for one party regardless of how badly they fucked the economy.
Old people, guys.
There should be a maximum voting age.

It's okay guys, I found him, call off the search.

Now, on to the next one:

Where is CaptainCombusken?
And cloudNinja is basically Mew at this point.
