  • Everything you thought you knew about Sweden is wrong!

  • Let's talk about that.

  • ♪ (theme music) ♪

  • Good Mythical Morning.

  • One of the privileges of doing this show

  • is that we get to do it for an international audience.

  • - Like you. - That means there's people

  • all over the world who watch Good Mythical Morning,

  • and that is a beautiful thing. But here's something that we have noticed.

  • A lot of times we talk about other cultures

  • and we comment on other countries outside of the United States of America.

  • And you know what happens? We get things wrong.

  • And you people out in the comments land let us know how wrong we are.

  • You get things wrong. I've never gotten anything wrong.

  • I got to say we both get things wrong.

  • And there's this interesting thing, that when you have an international audience,

  • there are these cultural sensitivities.

  • You get things wrong, you get blasted for it.

  • We want that to end now!

  • At least as far as Sweden is concerned.

  • So we have brought in a Swedish expert to clear things up

  • about misconceptions that we have and Americans have about Sweden.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the show Mr. Felix PewDiePie.

  • (Rhett) Whoo woo hoo!

  • Oh, hey, I was just hanging out here.

  • Yeah, you're just hiding behind Rhett.

  • (Rhett) Take a seat.

  • So you're, like, right in the middle.

  • - Okay. - This is your seat.

  • This is an honor. Thank you so much.

  • This is an honor? Really?

  • Well, I'm the Swedish expert. That's like my goal with YouTube.

  • Well, you brought...

  • I've been trying to be the Swedish expert all along.

  • - Go ahead and belly up to the bar. - Sorry.

  • That's how we do it in this country.

  • We get close to the microphone.

  • - And, like, totally shoulder to shoulder. - Okay.

  • I don't think we have to touch shoulders.

  • That's a little weird. I want to relax a little bit.

  • Yeah, we want this to be...

  • We don't get this close in Sweden, but I'll make an exception, 'cause you know...

  • Okay, so we've already learned something.

  • -Don't use spoilers here. -Personal space fear in Sweden is...

  • - Larger. - We're in it right now.

  • You're way beyond the line, man.

  • - We shouldn't be touching, like, arms? - No, that's not okay.

  • Really? My knee was touching your knee too.

  • Making eye contact in the subway-- that's just, like, the biggest no-no ever.

  • What do you look at?

  • You just pretend that there's no people.

  • Like, do you look up? Or down? Or anywhere but anyone's eyes?

  • Yeah, exactly. Anywhere but the eyes-- nipples, genitals, whatever just--

  • - I'm just sayin'. - Like my own?

  • - Yeah, that's probably better, yeah. - Others.

  • - Okay. - Yeah.

  • - Thanks for clearing that up. - You're very welcome.

  • Now, I'm assuming you're an expert on everything Swedish.

  • - Pretty much everything, yeah. - Because you have so many subscribers.

  • That's how it goes, I think.

  • - There's an algorithm for that. - That's the logic.

  • And I think one of the things that you're an expert on is, for instance,

  • Swedish things are not Swiss. That's something that a lot of Americans say.

  • - Yeah, that's very offensive. - They're like, you speak Swiss?

  • - That's stupid. - Thank you.

  • Haven't you heard it? Haven't you heard that?

  • - All the time. - All the time!

  • It's not Swiss. That's Switzerland.

  • I say like-- oh, they're like, oh, you're from Sweden.

  • So you like chocolate or whatever? 'Cause Swisses like chocolate.

  • - We don't even know what chocolate is. - No, no, no, we've got our

  • - wrong stereotypes correct today. - Good. That's good.

  • And we're going to start with IKEA.

  • Is all the furniture in Sweden in everyone's home from IKEA?

  • Absolutely. Absolutely.

  • - That's what I thought. - All of it, 100%.

  • - 110%. - I wouldn't go that far.

  • But, I mean, people will raise some eyebrows if you don't have IKEA furniture.

  • 'Cause here's my theory. My theory is that here in the United States IKEA is like,

  • Oh, I got this thing from IKEA. Isn't that awesome?

  • But in Sweden it's like, oh, you got that from Walmart?

  • It's like... is not IKEA the Walmart of Sweden?

  • Or it like still kind of like, no, we like it?

  • - Seriously. - That's a good point.

  • Like, do you have IKEA furniture? Well, you don't live in Sweden anymore.

  • - Mm-hmm. I used to have IKEA furniture. - You live in London, right?

  • - Uh, U.K. - Okay.

  • Well that's London, but Brighton. I live in Brighton now.

  • Um, but you lived how many years in Sweden?

  • - You own Sweden, right? I mean, you... - I own Sweden?

  • Not financially. I mean, you've lived there long enough to own knowledge of it.

  • Yeah, yeah, I'm the Swedish expert. I thought we talked about this.

  • - Yeah, yeah, so IKEA-- is it... - I'm backtracking at this point.

  • high class or low class?

  • - Or just like middle of the road? - Oh, that's low class.

  • -Oh, it is? -Yeah, it is, yeah, sorry.

  • See? I knew that. I knew that was right.

  • - See, but the-- - It's like students go to IKEA

  • or new young couples or I don't know.

  • - So same as here? - Yeah.

  • Only people who are desperate for something to sit on go to IKEA.

  • We love meatballs. We go there for that. You guys like meatballs?

  • - I do. - Specially IKEA meatballs.

  • We don't put horse in them.

  • - (laughs) Well... - That happened.

  • We pretend that that's not a thing.

  • What horse?

  • I heard about there was some horse in the meatballs over there.

  • Have you ever eaten horse?

  • I mean, I guess I have, because I eat IKEA meatballs.

  • - Right? - Yeah, see?

  • -But the largest IKEA in the world is-- - I mean, no, I haven't.

  • - I would never. - Okay.

  • - For the record. - For the record, yeah.

  • - It's in Kungens Kurva in Skärholmen. - Wait, what?

  • - Please say that again. - Which is south Kungens Kurva.

  • - (laughing) What the heck? - It's the largest IKEA in the world.

  • - I can't even tell what you just said. - Really?

  • - I'm reading it off of my notes here. - It's so far off.

  • - Wait, can I please see it? - How would you say that?

  • - Oh... oh my god. - Read that Kungens Kurva.

  • In Skärholmen

  • It's, like, only funny to me. I'm sorry. Uh, Kungens Kurva, yeah.

  • Yeah, what is that?

  • That's Kings Curve. Kings Curve.

  • And the largest IKEA in the world is there 594,000 square feet.

  • - Oh (beep) - (Link) Has four floors.

  • - (PewDiePie) (Beep) - You've never been there?

  • - That's legit. No, I haven't. - That's the picture right there.

  • I feel like I'm less Swedish now for not going there.

  • Well, you should go there. Now what about the Swedish Chef from The Muppet Show?

  • You love him? Right?

  • You as a people.

  • I feel-- (laughs) I feel like I should be offended, but I'm really not.

  • Yeah, I mean this is very cultural insensitive.

  • - But that's the whole point. - Yeah.

  • It's to just get it all out of our systems and correct it

  • at least as far as Sweden is concerned.

  • Okay. Are we watching this?

  • (speaking gibberish)

  • - Have you seen this guy before? - I have a couple times.

  • I imagine this how the Swedish sound to you guys pretty much.

  • As a kid, I was taught through this guy this is Sweden.

  • (chuckles) I mean, it's not that far off, I would say.

  • You can confirm that is an accurate portrayal of Swedish chefs?

  • Of a Swedish chef, yes, I would say that.

  • That makes horse meatballs?

  • - But you know... - Yes.

  • But was there an awareness of this guy on The Muppets

  • growing up in Sweden?

  • Like, when did you find about this guy?

  • - From Americans. - Okay.

  • They want to know about it. I actually--

  • Like in YouTube comments, that was the first time you heard about it?

  • - I think so, yeah. - Really?

  • I...I'm terrified of Muppets. It's a long story.

  • Yeah, I stay away.

  • - But do you... - We'll save that for ear biscuits.

  • But do the Swedish people, do they have a disdain for the Swedish chef?

  • Are they like, oh man, that Swedish chef.

  • That stereotypical Swedish chef. We hate him and what he represents.

  • Or are they like, no, that's pretty much... yeah.

  • We don't really get offended in Sweden.

  • - Period - No.

  • - Ever - That's good.

  • You can try to offend me, whatever.

  • What about this five-week vacation?

  • Oh that's a-- that's amazing.

  • - (laughs) - That's for real?

  • Yeah, that's for real.

  • Everybody gets a five-week vacation?

  • I think it's six.

  • - Really? - Yeah.

  • - It's moved to six already. - You bumped it up.

  • And if you... you get a lot of pregnancy hours too-- no, days.

  • I mean, months. Yeah, you get, like, nine months, you know?

  • You get a lot of time to get pregnant, huh?

  • They give you time to get pregnant.

  • (laughs) Well... no, no.

  • - Take some time off. - You have six hours...

  • - Come back-- when you're pregnant. - ...to procreate.

  • - No, when-- that's maternity leave. - Maternity leave.

  • - Whatever. - Yeah.

  • Many business close down for the month of July.

  • Everyone takes some or all of their five weeks of their entitled annual holiday.

  • - 'Cause here-- - Wait, I'm so lost. Wait.

  • Here, it's like, okay, you got holidays you can take.

  • You've got time you can take. But people don't take all of it.

  • - In two weeks, if you're lucky. - Really?

  • But my notes tell me the entire month of July

  • is when the five week thing--

  • - It's like Sweden shuts down in July. - Yeah.

  • It's just people are getting pregnant.

  • - Not working. - Exactly.

  • Yeah, I would say so, yeah. That's when most people--

  • 'Cause we-- Sweden kind of sucks.

  • - The weather is awful. - Really?

  • Yeah, it's terrible. And it's only good in July.

  • So people take time off in July.

  • - Why should we be working now? - Exactly.

  • But have you taken five weeks?

  • You're a YouTuber. That means you don't take any vacations.

  • (chuckling) Right.

  • No, I never had, like, a full-time job like that.

  • So no, I never got to do that.

  • - Okay, but do your friends quit working? - I usually work that month actually.

  • - Yeah. Yeah, they do. - Okay, and finally--

  • Is that weird?

  • Well, it's just-- I mean, we work a little bit harder.

  • That's all. That's all that is.

  • - (laughter) - We're pretty amazing.

  • - We try. We have to try harder. - No, I wish--

  • We could learn from you definitely. We shouldn't work as much.

  • We should take a five-week vacation; I'm all for it.

  • Last thing-- waffles.

  • We love waffles here. You guys seem to really love waffles there.

  • So much so that apparently there is a waffle day.

  • - It's a holiday? - Yes.

  • Is this something that everybody knows about and celebrates?

  • - Yeah, it is. It is. - Tell us about it.

  • Well, my grandma always reminds me, and she always cooks waffles for me.

  • - Felix, it's Waffle Day. - It's amazing.

  • What is that is Sweden? Swedish?

  • What is that in Swiss?

  • Not funny.

  • - Oh, I'm sorry. - Not funny.

  • I'm going to do it anymore.

  • Felix, det är svammel dag.

  • Sounds like you said the waffle dog.

  • It's not the same thing.

  • Felix, the waffle dog is here.

  • That means it's Waffle Day.

  • That sounds pretty good, actually. I'll have some of that.

  • Remember that culturally insensitive stuff you were saying at the top?

  • You're like stepping right in that.

  • I told you I'm just getting it out of system.

  • But I told you we don't get offended, so it's okay.

  • - Yeah, he can't offended. - Yeah, so just go nuts.

  • - My notes tell me that's March 25th. Am I right?

  • - I think so, yeah. - Okay, and--

  • I told you my grandma reminds me so I don't keep that right.

  • And you have candy that imitates waffles.

  • - It's not even that you just eat waffles. - Wait, what?

  • - You have candy that's like waffles. - Stroopwafel, right?

  • - What? - I don't know. I saw it one time.

  • -We've had it shipped to us before, stroopwafel.

  • What? What the hell?

  • It looks like a waffle, but it's, like, wafery candy stuff.

  • - Hmmmm. - Like you go into a gas station

  • and it's like, oh, that's a waffle. Nope, it's candy that's shaped like waffle.
