Norwegian military recruiting video
« on: December 23, 2016, 10:23:45 »
A Norgie friend of mine shared it on FB. 

There isn't an English translation, but I'm a fan of the production quality and the "Earth porn" shots of KNM Fridtjof Nansen sailing their fjords  :nod:

I don't know what they're saying but I agree that it's a good video.  Love the landscapes scenes.

Another Norwegian recruiting video, featuring the mighty Orion.  I like how it's the opposite of 'Murican recruiting videos  :nod:

Rather than start a new thread....

USAF Special Ops recruiting commercial. I thought this was a different approach.

I immediately thought of another ad when I saw that.
