    Central European Alpine clothing in a Quasi Scandinavian setting, but of course its an American caricature. You go to Solvang and they won’t speak a word of Dansk, not unlike if you visited Hermann Missouri they won’t understand a word of German, but I suppose there is a small charm in having a de facto colony within another continent.

      Yes, and American Dad, Simpsons, South Park, etc. properly only do a small amount of fact-check before hand. Maybe they aim for a more Germanic appeal and mix it together, knowing that Danes enjoy German parody and maybe Germans enjoy Danish parody. Same with Netherlands, Sweden and Norway.

    I am sure then you didn’t mind that Danes from Southpark were depicted as a mix between the Dutch & Underpants Gnomes then. American Germano-Nordic comprehension is not too far from the “Swedish Chef Muppet” by the way.

    A pity the mother tongues are not spoken. And that they have taken to commercial garb rather than exposition of ancestral dress. Maybe for the best you don’t remember much South Park. Shows like that tend to be fairly lowbrow. Not that there’s anything wrong with a cheap laugh now and again, but for me anyway, the pills (black, red and other) make it difficult to watch American media.

      They are only in small numbers, witch properly explaine why langauge and culture is not so strong.
      Some of the Danish theme South Park was kind of funny.

      American media is bad, but seems to get worse and worse. Things from the 60s, 70s and 80s can be easier to watched.
      Like Clint Eastwood movies, James Bond (British/American), They Live, Smokey and the Bandit (Burt Reynolds), Weekend at Bernie´s, Willow, A Fish Called Wanda (British/American), Air America, Big Trouble in Little China, Mad Max (Australien/American), Escape From New York, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Men At Work, The Three Amigos, Wisdom just to mention a few.

        I’ve seen Mad Max. Only because I loved Fallout 1&2 as a kid. Watching Mad Max was strange, too much leather. Made me uncomfortable. Definitely. Definitely after 60s and up. I think of “I Love Lucy,” often touted as prime Americana… Is about an obnoxious woman with her Cuban husband, whom she owns. Nah, YKW has owned our media since when. A few rebels like Father Coughlin and Axis Sally fought the power, but really they’ve been breaking Whites down for ages. Kind of impressive, in a way, it took so long. Still sad, still bad.

        Yes, they were always in Hollywood.
        Clint Eastwood made (Italien) Spagetti Western which might have been less infiltrated, for example.
        They are much more aggressive in their propaganda today and in much more of the movies made.
        B-movies made in Philippines doing the 80s might not have that many dindus or propaganda, compared to todays Hollywood big budget movies.
