Best of: Finnish Police

19. November 2015

Since a couple of weeks I have subscribed to the finish police forces various social media accounts. Police forces as well as individual policepersons seems to be quite active, especially on instragram, but also on Facebook and twitter.

Their messages all seem to be taken with some irony and humor. Here are the best (so far).

Obviously the strategy is to present police as people who enjoy sports and are physically fit (maybe these deters criminals) and as people who have fun at their work:

Also the humor and making fun about Halloween and stuff seems to be important:

The police school even participates with one this popular finish fish memes? Witch they explain in the commentary section: nice blog @sbamueller! #kuhajutut-meemi is based on Finnish language so it’s pretty hard to explain 🙂 „Kuha“ is both a fish and a spoken-language version of „kunhan“ (as long as). „Voi“ is both #butter“ and the verb „can“. Here we tackled all the memes in one picture: sporting with other officers (#taukojumppa), wearing the reflective vest (#taikaviitta) and the fish/butter -thing. The text translates „One can exercise as long as one is visible“… Weird Finnish humour… 🙂

The singing policeman

The video that made him famous:

First Brigadier (etwa Hauptgefreiter) Norman Kamaru, more about him on Inside Indonesia.

See how he is performing

Unfortunatly the GEMA has blocked these videos in Germany!

and this seems to be the first real purposefully produced video clip of him singing:

Who knew that indonesian policeman could be that good at signing indian songs?
