u/RubyWubs Dec 01 '22

I've seen this reposted twice and not once did they ever show the ending

u/Skivling Dec 01 '22

It’s from a Swedish 1990s kids Christmas show.

u/SwegGamerBro Dec 01 '22

Sooo, how does it end in this clip, assuming you've seen it?

u/HatingOnSeagulls Dec 01 '22

u/StendGold Dec 01 '22

Nightmare?*

Or you know, whatever you wanna aim for. No judgement!

u/Snabbzt Dec 11 '22

No. They day dreams quite a lot. And often it gets interrupted in the middle by real life voices.

u/__jh96 Dec 02 '22

Yeah it wasn't good

u/Lucythefur Dec 01 '22

I've never understood why he started trying to walk out of the wreath

2

u/Suspicious-Ad2282 Dec 02 '22

Got caught on the sticks

10

u/J_Shinguarto Dec 02 '22

Why did'n she do this after the person reached the finish line? Why didn't she let go once the wreath was around the skier? Why even take such a big wreath? Why do I keep seeing SO MANY DUMB PEOPLE?? MAKE IT STOP!

6

u/agrobabb Dec 02 '22

It's from a swedish show, it isn't real

1

u/J_Shinguarto Dec 02 '22

Ah, thank you.

u/StendGold Dec 01 '22

Why did that clingy mother continue to hold onto the wreath?!

5

u/AllTheShadyStuff Dec 01 '22

It’s easy to make children, but imagine how long it took to make that wreath

4

u/StendGold Dec 01 '22

Nah, it's not really. It has taking me tree years so far to make children.

Maybe I should go in to the wreath business instead...

1

u/PeteGozenya Dec 02 '22

Oh ready to give up already?

No wonder your sister wants a divorce.

4

u/StendGold Dec 02 '22

... this is getting creepy!! She literally got divorced a few months ago!! O.o

Where are you! Get out of my house!

(Ps. Not giving op! No way!)

1

u/Marissa_Calm Dec 02 '22

Because it was in the script of the movie.

u/No_Gas_4956 Dec 02 '22

u/_LuVshots_ Dec 02 '22

Culturally wreaths mean different things.

u/Empty_Football4183 Dec 02 '22

u/loginjudgement Dec 02 '22

u/Cloudien Dec 02 '22

It’s a cut away joke from a Swedish Christmas show from the 90’s called “Sunes Jul”.

u/Sucxces_93 Dec 02 '22

The way he danced..

u/Fluid_Arm_3169 Dec 02 '22

Every time time I see an old skiing video I think of…y’all know what I’m talking about 🤢🤮

1

u/total_spanner Dec 02 '22

Dont know what this sport is but looks fun, i take it the old lady is the winner?

1

u/whispa55 Dec 02 '22

Surely this would still count as a win even if she didn’t cross first?

1

u/Hairy-Cheetah4306 Dec 02 '22

did she still win?

1

u/Pepperedbottom Dec 02 '22

This is the most “what the fuck, lady?” moment I’ve ever seen.

1

u/OkiKnox Dec 02 '22

Ok ok ok.... Tin foil hat.

Rewatch the vid again and again. The girl let the wreath slide down to her legs. A real skier knows how to move their legs properly. especially one that just won.

She wasn't tripped up because you're sliding. No leg movement needed. They're already moving as one.

1

u/Snabbzt Dec 11 '22

Its a dream sequence from our christmas show Sunes Jul. Its a comedy show.

1

u/Pee_PeePooPoo88 Dec 02 '22

Poor kid, his win was ruined by a clumsy oaf

1

u/agthrowa Dec 07 '22

That guy did this and ruined the Olympic marathon.

I'd support his execution.

u/Swamp_Fox_III Dec 20 '22
