The only thing racist about this is labeling this Chinese when the music is most definitely Japanese.

@Sutra: LOL. I guess your friend`s response is proof that you almost never know how people are going to react to things. Thanks for checking.

By the way, where in Asia are you? Just curious. I`m on east coast of U.S., near Philadelphia.

My Chinese friend-
I don`t think that is offensive, but just incredibly uncoordinated and simply stupid looking lol

I looked them up. They are from Norway but immigrants.
Two are bothers and all three have Islamic names. That could be from anywhere, the choice of the music makes me think they have roots in Britain.

They are good, am gonna check with my Chinese pal if this is offensive. I didn`t think so.

@Sutra: I agree that Sweden and Denmark are the most diverse of the Scandinavian countries. This particular dance troupe is from Norway.

@squrlz are they Finnish? Then maybe yeah.
It`s likely that are an Asian group in that case no,

You are right about Finland they all even look the same.
But not the rest of the Nordics, Sweden & Denmark are very diverse. Mainly because of the international adaptions..

I think the dancing`s good, but I have another problem with the performance. It`s just a bit--forgive me, Ash--racist. The dance troupe would probably be surprised to learn that anyone would view it that way, but having been married to an Asian woman for seven years (now divorced), yeah, I do. The "coolie hats," the silk pajamas, the silly walks, the kung-fu, the fake Chinese, the Thai wai, and the pseudo-Asian music: the whole skit`s approach seems to be something from the 1940s, when Asians were viewed as either mysterious or comical.

What we`re getting here is a parody of a culture. Perhaps it was intended as such, but having lived in Finland for a while, I doubt it. I love Scandinavians generally, but they`ve been pretty isolated in terms of diversity. When I was in Finland, they were still marketing licorice with pictures of little African children with big red lips and large white eyes. (I`m not kidding.)
