Wonderful! I was expecting the process to get interrupted by a very irate manager at some stage.

"Others were at work at christmas day..."

"And here it goes."

Big boxes in the middle are 24-packs of beer. Middlesized fast red boxes are sour crackers(?) sourskorpor, kind of dried rye bread (yummy). All of the slow ones and the tall ones are juices as you probably guessed.

Last words are: "Where are we?" "At the k-market!"

No major brands were used. Just knock-offs.

Cool. I saw a logo on one of the boxes (~4:10) that looked like the golden bear version of the OBEY stickers. It took me a little while to track it down as the logo for Karhu beer.

No products were harmed during the making of the movie, since the elements just bumb to eachother.

These guys must be new to groceries.

I hope the floor had been cleaned really well, or else you have like a thousand juice cartons and cereal boxes with the bum vomit and dog shit residue from everyone's shoes on them.

Yeah, hopefully. From the "About This Video" note at YouTube:
"First you wash the floor properly, then you arrange the elements. "

I knew there would be a fucking germophobe comment in here. STOP THIS FOOLISHNESS.

I guess I'm an anti-germophobe. I was like, "Why'd they wash the floor first?"

Germophile?

They were speaking Finnish with German accents?

Spoiler: the makers of the video were the son of the shopkeeper and his daughters boyfriend. And they made this video with his permission.

Oluita en olisi antanut kaataa, jos olisin tiennyt, miten isosta jutusta on kyse. Mutta mitään vahinkoa ei aiheutunut. Tarkastin itse osan tavaroista. Hapankorputkin olivat kunnossa.

="I wouldn't have let them topple the beer cases, if I'd known how big this would be. But no harm was done. I checked some of the wares myself. Even the "sour rusk" were ok."

="- I think that it is a sign of a enterprising mind; two young guys using a couple of days of their spare time for something like this."

Of all the videos on YouTube, one wonders why they'd disable the commenting feature for this particular one?

Bob: hahaha, I'm totally going to do that when I go into work on Monday.

Tyler: Me too. Walmart sux!!!

Nervous Walmart Official: I demand that you take down the commenting privileges of this video--now!

hadjiboy, YT posters can disable comments.

All of the edits lead me to suspect that they had to re-boot several times.

I liked the way the cartons with liquid in them went over real slow. Hope this shows up in the next Chad Vader episode.

Clean up in aisles 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 12, 14, 18, and 22!

Bum vomit! I have it on good authority that the salads in a bag often contain piss, courtesy of the under-paid staff at the packing factory. It's OK as urine is sterile! Personally, I don't drink my juice by licking it from the side of the carton, I use the pourer provided. I know that's just what they are expecting me to do, but it's so convenient! I do suck coins though, I use it as a test of my immune system. Whenever I arrive in a new country I get some change and carry it around in my mouth. As I arrive healthy it only takes a couple of days of feeling under the weather before I am back to normal. I seldom suffer from dehibilitating illnesses as a result.*

I can't believe only two of them set it all up. It must have taken more than 30 seconds, which is my entire attention span. That's alot of stock!

* May not be true.
