Is Nordic humour too dark for the rest of the world?

quote [ Scandinavian noir is a global phenomenon but Nordic comedies often fail to translate. ]

I'm just using this article as an excuse to post some of my short favorites in the extended. Marked SFW, but some of the clips contain strong language, if you need to look out for that.

Practical telepathy

quote [ Streams of pseudo-random bits representing the words ?hola? and ?ciao? were successfully transmitted mind-to-mind between human subjects separated by a great distance, with a negligible probability of this happening by chance. ]

Grab the money and run!

quote [ A banker who managed the money of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, has taken $5million (?3 million) and defected to Russia, a South Korean newspaper has reported. ]
