Ylvis – Tvangsaktuell satire [English subtitles]


COMPULSIVELY CURRENT
SATIRE You’re still here, Jakob.
Great. That was the plan. Now it’s time for
Compulsively Current Satire. -Do you do a lot of satire?
-Not that much. But it will be exciting to try it
live, here. That will be fun. -Calle, do you like satire?
-Well… I saw Jan Bøhler on the tram once and
yelled: “Hey, get a hair cut!” -That’s satire.
-Stinging. We started doing satire
because our show is live. We have the chance to go to VG.no,
or Dagbladet, we’re independent… We look for news stories and give you
the most current satire in Norway. The drawback is
that we don’t get to prepare,- -but I say, like my mum: Spontaneous satire is often
just as good as planned satire. For instance…
We’ll choose one of you. Bård. Say something satirical
about a bow tie. Sometimes I’m so funny
I need to take a bow. If you think about it,
it’s brilliant. So think about it! Our satire starts now. It might not
be funny, but it’s live! Awesome. Each of us will sing one verse
of this satirical song. Vegard is in charge of
bringing us the news stories. After each, we’ll do a refrain.
It goes like this. Is that really the case,
was that really the plan? It’s time to take a stand Good one. I’m in barge of
picking the news stories… -Are you in barge?
-Yes. Let’s start with you, Calle.
You can go first. I’ll take this one.
There’s a lot of crap, but OK. “Russian aircraft
flew over the Baltic Sea.” “Both Swedish fighters
and NATO on their tails.” -What?
-Once more. “Russian aircraft
flew over the Baltic Sea.” “Both Swedish fighters
and NATO on their tails.” -That’s OK.
-Yes. Could that be NATO flying there?
Or is it the Swedes coming here? We have enough to take care of
here on the Baltic Sea border Is that really the case,
was that really the plan? It’s time to take a stand -Sorry, that last line was Russian.
-Let’s move on. Are you ready, Jakob? IOC thinks Dutee, that’s a woman,- -is too much of a man
to be allowed to compete. -Of course.
-Yes. That’s what it’s like to compete It can be hard to know
who you’ll meet Some are women,
others are men Yes, that is the case! Is that really the case,
was that really the plan? It’s time to take a stand! -This is great!
-You’ll get a tough one, Bård! A tough one. You’ll need to come up
with a lot. The headline is: “The car of the people
has been chosen”. The car of the people
has always been the Opel All the way from old Athens
to Constantinople But if you’re full of prunes,
you can drive a Datsun That’s actually the case! Is that really the case,
was that really the plan? It’s time to take a stand! Yes, let us take a stand! Cheers!

  1. The subs are unfortunately extremely inaccurate. At times completely random… nothing to do with what they are actually saying.

    What Bård says about the bow tie is actually: "Sometimes you are so political that you "crossover under"" (aka. flip-flop (wordplay)).

    What Calle sings in "Russian" (I can't make out exactly what he says) is something like:
    "We Ruskis btw, are quite simply arming up". (Or in Norwegian: "Vi russer forresten, ruster opp rett og slett"

  2. I lovee the tvansaktuel satire-series thingy, but I really want to know what they're saying in the refrain, 'ja nå har det …. meg nok' or something? Can anyone tell me what they're saying? My norwegian isn't that great yet..
