Thank you!

I like the Swedes. Just look at how they handle the problem of television license dodgers. On Danish television they make a rather aggressive (though humorous) film about antisocial bastards who wont pay the license fee thus making it more expensive for the rest of the Danish people! 

In Sweden they thank those who actually do pay.


The video opens with the words:

Excuse me. Are you Katarina Tillberg?
Yes, that’s me…
And then the lyrics go something like:

Thank you Katarina
for paying your license fee
And thanks José and Ann and Jörgen and many, many more
Thank you for all your contributions from East to West, from North to South
Thank you for paying television license fee!

So positive and happy! I love how the objects of the appreciation seem utterly bewildered and how suddenly it’s not just one man but a choir singing. Wonderful!

Look they made one in a swimming bath too.
