Engaging young people to vote is always tricky, so the Danish government resorted to a cartoon promo. But after a wave of criticism over the cartoon’s lewd depictions of sex and violence, parliament withdrew the video, the day after its launch.

  1. This isn't the worst. That distinction would go to the commercials that show people exploding, with blood and guts, when someone pushes a big red button. I think that was also done by Denmark or Sweden. All that repressed hostility in those pacifist countries I guess.

  2. What I love about the world is how over critical people react to an otherwise harmless video with their critizism about small details that only people that wanna hate it hates. People with enough self respect will watch this say wtf and go watch something more to their taste and then probably forget this video even exsists….. Why has the world become so touchy about black homour?

  3. So European nations voter turn out is as bad as Americas? That's interesting to know. In the US only 2 out of 5 Americans vote. So some Europeans are not happy with their countries systems and elections either? The same thing in the US. Our elections are completely rigged.

  4. While I am aware that guest-speakers (in this case, Patrick Young) generally aren't the host news-agency's employees, as a fan of anime/manga, I am compelled to corect that speaker's erronious claim: This is NOT anime or manga.

    Interesting topic, though.

  5. Voting = majority tyranny or mob rule.  The mob is too dumb, uneducated, inexperienced, and self-centered to vote for what's best for the entire nation.  The mob votes for its own interests.  The mob is easily confused or swindled by the mainstream media, complex policies with simplistic summaries, glamorously horrible candidates, and dishonest candidates.  The election allows the biggest mob to force its will on smaller mobs. 

    It's time to experiment with other political systems, such as maximum representation, a bill of rights, an oligarchy with membership based on intelligence and moral behavior, etc.

  6. come on, it's the most funny vote commercial ever, or at least one of them.

    yes, i'm a Dane, and no i might not be voting in their favour either but got to give them credit where it's due.  xD

  7. Their method seems to have worked as it has gotten your news station to post an article on it. Also I found their commercial rather interesting vs the vapid innocuous run of the mill commercials that have voters bored to death. If they're offending people at least they're getting their attention.

  8. It is interesting to note how much it is, that those who determinedly know so little about the EU because they are determined to know so much about drag performer Conchita Wurst, are so "knowledgeably" antagonistic towards the EU.

  9. Voting should not be compulsory and I think if there is not a certain proportion of the population that participates then the government's legitimacy should be called into question as it can be a symptom of a dysfunctional political system.

    Personally I regret ever voting in the USA because it has not mattered what I voted for, and I also was called on jury duty as a result.  So there has been nothing positive about it.
