Never before have I heard a noise of such pure joy. It’s the simple things in life….

    I really wish I knew what this guy was saying….

    • Bob Wilson

      He is saying "If I make a big deal about of this snack candy, maybe it will go viral and I will get paid to do this stupid crap" or it was already a setup for a fake commercial…. which we all just watched willingly.

    • Mambo

      he is basicly saying "heres some stuff i burried", "ahh i got them puffy crisps", "ahhhh, i got chocolate", "ahhh i got these sweets", "that's so good"… Although you can probl guess as much :P. It's Norwegian btw

      • Cornholio

        Ohh. I thought he said, "I need TP for my bunghole!"

      • beerman

        Norwegians eat Swedish fish?

    • Bumm

      Hearing the excited exclamation of "cheese doodles" mixed in with everything else is all you need to hear.

    • AmusingHat

      Same stuff I say when I come out of the field after weeks on cold rations, I'd imagine. Along the lines of "Thank god something with a little flavor!"

    • TheMoose03

      "WILSON! I'M SORRY!"
      "Ooh, look, candy."

    • dacky2

      I did the best I could translating this, it's under my username dacky2, and it's in two parts cause the 'comment' was too long for this format. Enjoy.

  • awnel

    English subtitles would be nice.

  • Kyle

    Wow that sounds like an incredibly boring adventure

    • Pete

      I thought the exact opposite. Sure it doesn't have the same thrill of El Capitan, but its pretty extreme in its own way

      • Kyle

        Extreme yes, but the scenery would get old after about 20 minutes, I'd rather go hike through mountains or something else besides flat, barren ice

        • Hudson

          flat barren ice where only a handful of people in the entire WORLD have ever set foot on.

  • Justin


    • Mike

      i was wondering what that noise was the other night

  • André Amundsen

    Now that! Is a proud Norwegian ! lol

  • Russian47

    that must be some good shit

  • Gijs

    From the looks of him I'd guess he's been down there for the better part of a decade. Now I know where Tom Hanks got his inspiration for his reaction when he finally made fire in 'Cast Away', the looks too btw.

    • Muadieb

      Exactly what I was thinking.

  • naelst


    • AndreChamer

      I approve!

  • Verbal_Kint

    Damn. He's lucky he didn't get eaten by a polar bear.

    • togaen

      Wrong pole.

      • Verbal_Kint

        LOLz. I knew someone would bite. Happy Friday to you.

    • MtnClmbr

      Not really…polar bears don't live in the south pole.

    • Len

      There's no polar bears in the south pole

    • Trig

      He might have got pecked by a penguine, but never attacked by a Polar bear.

      • Trig

        Doh…I fell for it!

  • kadugen

    ice man talks to himself

  • sdago25

    Pause at 1:10.

    • Chode

      Oh look, he's smiling

  • Ross

    WHat an ugly sounding language

    • Okey...

      Yes, not as nearrrrrr as wonderfully sweet flowery sound of american-english!! (Ey bro, thos kids try'ed to beat on me and i was like fu*k you kid i'll fu*k ya schiidd up, man! Word bro..)

      You sir, are a douche.. Yes a douche!

      Beacus you don't understand is you hate it, just like everything ells you merican dont understand….

      • George Costanza

        okey… needs a fuckin tampon asap.

      • John

        I decided to learn Norsk, simply because of how awesome it sounds (the sing-songy speakers at least, like Petter uses)

    • AmusingHat

      That's the language of the goddamn vikings, son. Call it ugly all you want, it's still spoken by some hard motherfuckers.

  • GernBlansten

    Funny, I can walk to the store and buy candy. All without freezing my balls off.

    • Pete

      Yeah but you won't have a story to tell your kids.

      • perryinjax

        What story? I wandered around alone back and forth at the South Pole just to say I did it? Looking at the same endless stretch of flat white snow to the horizon every single day after day….
        Sorry, I just dont see the thrill in that.. no thank you!

        • DoC

          You've obviously never seen pictures of the South Pole or appreciate nature…..or enjoy freezing your balls completely off.

          • kc1

            He won't have kids to tell the story to if he froze his balls off.

        • Guest

          Then you don't understand the feats involved. Yes its desolate but that can be the beauty of it.. This mans self discovery in such a harsh environment will probably make him a better man than you ever will dream to be… simple.

    • AmusingHat

      But will you love that candy as much as this man loves his cheese doodles? (Trick question, nobody anywhere loves anything as much as this man loves his cheese doodles.)

  • iChive

    I hear they're going to make this into a movie starring James Franco.

    • Anna


  • joe

    All I got from that was Mentos. Next time tell him to speak M'erican!

  • Diamond

    How do we know he is not an Imitation?

  • spit


  • Cheese

    Those are cheese doodles.

  • lorycowery

    At the 2:30 mark, I caught myself smiling.

    • Spork

      Smiling? That's it? I was cracking up during the whole thing. I didn't understand a word he said, but that language is awesome. At something like 2:27, he says something that just cracks me up.

  • Sophialstavnes.

    Heia Norge!!!!

  • xbod

    I now know the secret to achieving ultimate joy in my life. Kids? Family? Money? Women?


  • Josh Gorter

    Ah shit they are expired.

  • Digs

    which reminds me. i need to watch the original "Thing" again lol

    • J-Walk

      The 1950's one?! MF'ing classic! You have very good taste sir. Chive on!

      • Digs

        Ah, you got me. I was actually unaware of the 1950's version. I was thinking the 1982 John Carpenter version. Used to watch the shit out of it when i was younger. Now that i know about the 1950's version i'm going to have to look it up and check it out!

      • Digs

        Have you ever read the book they are based off? "Who Goes There"? I'm thinking of picking that up as while since i'm deployed with nothing but time on my hands. Unless the book blows thats is.

  • DrLeppiwinks

    Sounds like Tom Hanks when he makes fire in Cast Away, I bet that shit was delicious
