There are many bands, comedy groups and other performers who may be very popular in their own country, but completely unknown outside it. And often for a good reason.
We know pretty well many performers from USA or Britain, but only a few from many other countries. And USA and Britain have also a lot of local talent that is not known outside their own territory.
DAC is an international place, so it might be fun to share some of these rare/old/strange/funny/stupid/embarrassing acts with others.
I'll open the game with a piece of Finnish comedy. This is probably from 1985 or so. The series Soitinmenot was music-oriented show that carried on for a couple of years. Mostly not very inspired stuff, I have to say, never liked it myself. But I chose this sketch, because: a) somebody subtitled it, and b) The customer is the same actor who played the Book in Finnish radio version of H2G2.
The song he is trying to sing was a local hit in the 80's.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Bd_IPwC0nc
