Shows how much americans really know about Finland. The accent is closer to swedish and the name isn't even Finnish. :roll: Granted there's a lot of swedish sounding surnames in here.

If the guy wouldn't have said the A-Team from Finland, I'd still think they were Swedish.

Ah hell I just look at it as a funny joke, I mean I don't get pissed off when people from other countries think that we Americans all have deep south accents and say things like "purdy" all the time.

To be fair, I don't think anyone south from Denmark, or maybe even outside of Finland and Sweden would know the difference(?) :lol:

The fact of the matter is many countries have many misconceptions about the world outside their own.

To parody this, here is what European countries think of the States http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghxn38bX7w0
