Swedish comedy “Inte OK!”

Do you get Swedish humor? It might not merely be about understanding the Swedish language …

Watch a video clip from the new Swedish comedy show “Inte OK!” (“Not OK”) on TV3. This particular clip portraits different social media types. It is in Swedish but there is probably no need to understand the language – I think the video speaks for itself. 🙂  Watch it here.

Do you think Swedish social media types, or their frequency, differ from other cultures’? Leave a comment.
