Brilliant and Cool - a mockumentaric road-'movie'
23 December 2004 | by (Aarhus, Denmark) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this, and didn't know what to expect. I had seen the promos, and it seemed odd that two danish men would travel to the United States and independently try and raise good-will for George. W Bush. The whole situation seemed odd, not only since very few Danes are in favour of Dubya, but also how it all was portrayed.....strange.

When I finally saw the show, I must say I was very pleasantly surprised, as it turned out to be one of the most entertaining and incredibly funny documentaries, well mockumentaries, I have ever seen. The whole show seems like a mixture of Louis Theroux's weird weekends and Sacha Baron Cohen's many characters (Ali G, Borat etc.).

The Two Danes mainly visit Republicans, and shall we say very colourful republicans. The two guy are incognito as being deeply conservative, and as I mentioned before, at first you don't really know "are they real?", therefore making the people, they talk to, really stand out for the not so finer things in life. When the two talk, they just play along with the republicans. But what the republicans don't know, it is with intend to getting them wound up and say something awful. They do it really well, so no wonder they don't suspect anything.

This way of making documentaries by almost acting as a Trojan horse, and soothing the targets instead of going right up in their faces with tough questions, is often better and more effective in getting information and the right comments, as the message gets clearer when people aren't forced to answer what they think, but just say them(OK, sometimes almost lured to). Jacob and Mads master this very well, they always try and get their interviewees to be more rabid by being more and more rabid themselves.

As each minute passes you feel even more mortified and laughter filled by how the whole thing just evolves.
