Everything about this video is perfect. Music, timing, sense of scale.

Babies, nature's drunks.

Loved this, very funny!

Booze chugging aside, my only "oh no!" moment was when I saw the umbrella toothpick. Toothpicks are stabby! And therefore dangerous! But then I noticed that the tip was dulled.

Well played, drunk baby. Well played.

I knew Europeans started drinking at a young age, but here's the proof, I guess.

Interesting, I took the baby to be emblematic of an American tourist. No specific reason, just the outfit (fanny-pack, bucket-hat) and general boorishness.

We've all had those nights, and doubt many of us had the sense to wear nappies.

I like to read the tags as a chronological progression through the clip.

Giant baby served a drink by a tiny puppet person: funny
Giant baby keeps on drinking, and looks like a tiny adult: silly
Giant baby gets up, steals food from someone's plate, breaks a table: hilarious!

This is exactly what Billy Ray was talking about. It's all fun and games until the video turns up on YouTube.

After taking the food, then drinking most of the 'wine', then upturning the glass on the table. You can't write that shit. Awesome.

Awww! She looks like a little insane drunken angel.
posted by filthy light thief at 4:44 PM on February 16, 2011


You see that moment about half way through where she points at the camera? That's when you know she's about to start calling people "friend" and picking fights.

You can see it in her eyes.

The first step is to admit that you're a baby and your bowels have become unmanageable.

Deep down we are all drunken babies who need to take the food from the puppets who try to force their norms upon us.

That baby needs to go to an AA meeting:

"Hi everyone. I'm a baby, and I'm an alcoholic..."

"Hi BABY!!"

"Man, did I fuck up last night... this dude, he got me drunk. I loved him. He loved me for a little while, but then he left. He was a puppet...anyone got a cigarette?

I too missed the fanny pack the first time around. God's in the details. And he's drunk too.

This is hilarious. Like amazing, crying hilarious.

Sadly for me this is the core of a joke that I developed some while ago for my non-existent stand up comedy career.

Goes something like this:
Children are like progressively sobering up drunks. Think about it. Last time you were out with that one friend who always gets blackout drunk you were in almost every way raising a child from birth.

Infants are pretty much black out drunk. They will violently shit or vomit at absolutely any time - even while sleeping spend most of their time passed out and have to be carried everywhere.

Toddlers are sobering up a bit, they will still shit themselves or piss at any time but at least you can kind of tell when they are going to throw up. They can walk, but not all that well and they will fall down randomly when they are not excitedly chasing after a pair of engorged breasts.

Once they hit about 5 or six, they are still drunk, but really in that overly talkative always hungry phase where they will devour some taco bell but refuse anything that might make them not hungover in the morning. They can walk, and almost pass for being sober but if you smell their breath you can still tell they are not in any way capable of taking care of themselves.

Teens have mostly sobered up but are still buzzed and will try and jump over fire and generally drive terribly.

Nick Swarsden mentioned something like babies being drunks also...ruined my day man...

Oh God everything about this video is hilariously perfect. Just had dinner tonight with my under-two-year-old nephew and it was pretty much like this. He doesn't grab food off other people's plates, but all the rest of it is there: using a fist as eating utensil, wearing rather than eating dinner, random pointing, wobbling around afterwards with diaper butt sagging, occasionally crashing into things. Johannes Nyholm is a genius.

That baby has a watch on. A baby-sized watch.

Also a bra. A stuffed bra.


It's a 14 minute short movie is about a middle-aged Swedish tourist going to a Las Palmas resort, getting drunk and wrecking things. Swedes have an unfortunate reputation for doing this once in a while. The lead character is played by the director's 1 year old daughter, with puppets in all supporting roles. This clip is just the trailer.

I missed a good chance to see the whole film: It premiered at the Göteborg International Film Festival a few weeks ago, and looked great already in the program, but I didn't want to see all the other short films in the first screening. Then, after it won a prize and the real buzz had started, I got a ticket for a movie where this would be the pre-screening, but my girlfriend accidentally brought the ticket with her abroad, and there was no chance to get it back in time.

I knew I missed something, but never thought it would get to this, where the trailer is internationally YouTube-viral. Now I think it will tour the other film festivals for a few months, before it will be shown in Swedish national television. Then you'll be able to stream it from their website. I will wait patiently, but with great anticipation.

Thank you for the link, springload. It looks like I can watch the videos even though I am outside the country! I'm looking forward to seeing the whole thing eventually.

This baby is really the very best baby. I love when it sniffs the wine and dumps it on the table.
