    Post interesting and weird entertainment from your country

    So, I've noticed lately that we have a lot of members from all over the world coming in, and this forum is less North American than it used to be. One thing I kind of love is seeing different random things from different countries. It can be weird, amusing, or simply awesome....it can be a video clip, song, or whatever. It doesn't have to be in English....if you think it's noteworthy, post it!

    I got the idea because of the Winnetou movies from Germany. My boyfriend loves them, and I felt the need to explain to someone how bizarre I find them. First off, they appeal to a romanticism of the old west that many people in Germany share. I think it has a lot to do with the ideal of living off the land and being closer to nature. Second of all, they're based on books written by a man called Karl May, who had never actually been to the US. This is pretty clear when you watch the movies....they're westerns, but you get the feeling that no one involved actually knows things about the Old West.

    There are a bunch of others in "related videos". Scroll through it and see. I think you don't have to speak German to get the novelty of it.

    British people...if you ever manage to understand it, there's a British character called Lord Castlepool who is one of the most bizarre stereotypes in the whole film (and this is coming from a movie about Native Americans made by people who have never met any real Native Americans).

    It's not my country, but Footrot Flat is an awesome Kiwi show/comic if anyone ever decides to check it out. It's a country/farmer type comedy told from the POV of the dog Involves cricket, crocs, wild boars, big busted chicks and bitches in heat

    RIP

    I have never been across the way
    Seen the desert and the birds
    You cut your hair short
    Like a shush to an insult
    The world had been yelling
    Since the day you were born
    Revolting with anger
    While it smiled like it was cute
    That everything was shit.

    As both an American and a (not particularly great) speaker of German, that pushed all of my WTF? buttons. xD

    As far as weird entertainment from my country...well...I'm an American...it's ALL weird. O-o

    Re: Post interesting and weird entertainment from your country

    In my country we have a charming parody band called "Die Antwoord" (The Answer). They use a lot of political and societal situations and stereotypes in their music, mainly focusing on race and class divides. Their main look is of the "poor white" and revel in anything dirty or freaky. They're terrible and utterly glorious. I doubt people who aren't from South Africa will understand a lot of what they're going on about (they sing in a mixture of English, Afrikaans and African languages in a rather thick accent) but the imagery is both humorous and provocative. If I'm not mistaken they have quite a following in Europe and the US, so you may have heard of them.

    This person came from my country. Some kind of alternative girly pop music kind of thing going on. Apparently very popular with 6 year old girls. Though I have seen much older people enjoy his music. Probably the weirdest "Entertainment" to ever come from Canada.

    From Britain's shore
    Wolfe the dauntless hero came
    And planted firm Britannia's flag
    On Canada's fair domain.
    Here may it wave,
    Our boast, our pride
    And joined in love together,
    The thistle, shamrock, rose entwined,
    The Maple Leaf Forever.
