Norwegian comedy on youtube

The Norwegian public broadcasting coorperation, NRK, has a very liberal policy on sharing material online. This includes their own channel on youtube, youtube.com/nrk. Most, or all, of the videos on this channel is in Norwegian, but a few includes english subtitles. From these I picked two videos I like very much to show here on my blog.

The first video I picked to include debates the question "Is buffering a problem?". This is done by a panel consisting of computer expert Rolf Tangen and the man who currently holds the patent on buffering. The video features the three Norwegian comedians Harald Eia, Bård Tufte Johansen and Atle Antonsen, the team behind several very successful comedy shows in Norway the last couple of years. I love them :)

The second video I picked is named "Medieval helpdesk". Another great example of Norwegian comedy, featuring the comedians Øystein Backe (helper) and Rune Gokstad (desperate monk). New technology always poses a challenge for the users...
