The same procedure as every year


The 1963 made-for-TV adaptation of the English comedy sketch "Dinner for One" has been shown on Danish television right before midnight every New Year's Eve since the mid-70s.

"Dinner for One" is about Miss Sophie, an elder upper-class lady celebrating her 90th birthday with four male friends. However, those male friends are actually dead years ago, so her butler James has to fill out the role of every one of them, getting drunker and drunker as he empties four drinks for every course of the dinner, and frequently stumbling over the head of a tiger-skin rug as he enters or leaves the kitchen.

Yes, it's that one. The original version, which is shown every New Year's Eve in Denmark and some other countries, can be seen here:

Well, the ending of the sketch actually do hint at something like that, when Miss Sophie retire to her bedroom with James following her inside.
