Nostalgic Christmas in Denmark

video
This is a nostalgic videoclip from Denmark. I never heard of "Julebal i Nisseland", but it looks like a traditional TV-show to me. I found it quite amusing. Hope you like it as well. And I would be grateful if anybody happens to have information about the film.

This is some information I got from "Anders":

The clip is from the film "Far til fire i sneen" (1954). It's the second film of a whole bunch of "Far til fire" films. They're hugely popular in Denmark and are still being produced today (but obviously with a different cast.)

The original "Lille Per" (the brat who sings the song) was a popular child actor, and they continued to use him for way too long, which made him look totally ridicolous in his boyish outfit. And as the story goes with child actors, he developed an addiction for hard narcotics, tried his luck as a pop singer, and ended up as a photographer for a hard porn magazine.

There are many clips from this film at You Tube and I found them quite charming. Sorry to hear about Lille Per and what happended to him.
