Africa to Norway – A Charity SpoofPosted by stan
While surfing this week on youtube, I found Africa to Norway. This video is a spoof on Charity Benefits. You know the type that rounds up a group of celebrities, has a special song composed, and then makes it the centerpiece of a televised telethon.
The video was made by members of the Norwegian Students organization, and as part of the spoof played on the stereotype that Africa is one big poverty zone. Here they portrayed Africans helping Norwegians, who in reality, are the second richest country in Europe.
What I found funny was some of the comments on youtube took the video seriously.
