America of course has a tendency to make their own versions of foreign films, but they also edit foreign film covers and posters to make them look more aggressive because apparently Americans respond best to that sort of thing. I asked people how movies would be different if made ONLY for an American audience and I couldn't stop laughing at people's suggestions, especially those send in by Americans.

Sauna for a king

Sauna for a king

A Burger King in Finland has a sauna in it because of course it does.

All the American fastfood chains had to make some major changes to their recipes to be allowed into the Nordic countries. Burger King definitely isn't the worst offender. So be warned if you ever visit a Nordic country and craves fastfood: it's more healthy here but also more expensive because not only are the restaurants expected to use better ingredients but they also have to pay their employees proper wages.

Ever noticed that Christmas specials of British shows are always creepy and scary? That's because they have an old tradition of telling ghost stories around Christmas.

Off to the rave

Off to the rave

There's some suggestion that the Vikings preferred dying at home because then they could join the family in death, and Hel was believed to be a neutral place like the world of the living, not the cold, wet and boring place the Christians later said it was. If that's true, going to Valhalla was probably a perk of dying in battle. You couldn't be with you loved ones, but you got to party in Valhalla.

The Rake

The Rake

Every time Trump praise a Scandinavian country for something the country responds with mockery. After he talked about how good Finland is at preventing forest fires the Finns responded with a flood of photos of themselves raking the snow covered ground and otherwise showing off their awesome rakes and all the amazing uses for them.

Star Invaders

Star Invaders

Usually there's so much light pollution in big cities that people can't see the stars at night, so when they experience major power failures and suddenly see the Milky Way for the first time they have no idea what it is. In the US people even tend to call the police on the Milky Way.

Stop the bus

Stop the bus

A group of Russians were caught trying to cross a bridge that was Vehicles Only dressed as a bus. The original video is actually pretty cute. They get "pulled over" by an exhausted security guard everything.

Hogging the sea

Hogging the sea

I'm suffering from a sever case of influenza right now, so instead of thinking of anything even remotely original I thought I'd illustrate this adorable little meme going around right now.
