Day 78 – Danish TV

I’m flabbergasted: This summer spend in Denmark, has shown me one thing. I don’t miss having a tv. Especially a Danish one. Danish TV is all about silly dating shows, food, tattoos and men baking with quinoa. Ok last one is a commercial.
But still: Show after show with ‘ordinary people’, getting their 15minutes of fame, doing ordinary stupid things people do, when they’re drunk, horny or upset.
It’s crazy in a way, we live in a time in the world, where this is what most people growing up aspire to be.

Growing up 200 years ago, we – or the male population at least – would aspire to get their ‘life education’ by travelling abroad and experience life abroad for a while. Living in different cultures – learning from them to bring back the knowledge and experience. And yes – of course maybe to flaunt their newly found experiences and fashions picked up abroad, home with all the people, who couldn’t travel themselves.
