Danish bus company Movia runs a night bus service which caters to the Copenhagen party crowd and other nocturnal creatures. This double layered video (which activates on mouseover) acts as a reminder to the folks who continue to party late into the wee hours of the morning when taking the night bus might be a better option. Or, as the copy says: “Is it time to get home?”.
Wait for the below movie to load, then move your cursor over the unfolding scenes to see how you think you look versus how you actually look when you’re drunk. Having been in the situation myself numerous times in my younger years, I can attest to the hilarity of each scene.
(Ed. note: I have decided to hide the rest of this post from the front page so that the movie doesn’t automatically start playing for those who do not want to see it. Click the link below to see the entire post!)
You can also watch a YouTube version which shows both realities at once:

This is amazing!! What great use of technology. Thanks for sharing!
This just made my day, it had me in stitches!
Do you mean Danish instead of Dutch? Please don’t confirm the stereotype of Americans who don’t have a clue about (European) topography… That would make me sad, because I love your blog!
My mistake. This is what happens when you’re running on 3 hours of sleep every night for prolonged periods of time. 🙁 Sorry for the brain fart — I know that Copenhagen is in Denmark, not the Netherlands — I must’ve jumbled the two when I was writing this post. It’s fixed now.
Yes, there are stereotypes about Americans and their cluelessness about other countries and cultures, but many Europeans make mistakes as well. My husband is German, and he and his friends have sometimes made errors when talking about North American states/provinces or cities, or even when talking about other European locations as well. After moving to Europe, I bristle when I hear comments about the “American stereotypes,” because Europeans can be just as clueless and ignorant about culture, politics, and social issues. I can think of a number of ditzy or ignorant comments Germans have made about Americans, Asians, African-Americans, etc.
Don’t be a snob.
I’m sorry, didn’t mean to be a snob. And yes, as reality-tv reminds me constantly, there are plenty of ignorant people in my country (the Netherlands) as well. I truly believe that every country in the world has equal percentages of friendly, hospitable and/or intelligent people. And equal parts of people who are not. Sadly, those are the ones that stand out and create the stereotype.
I really did not question your geographical knowledge (or your ability to use Google Maps). I read your post late at night, and had to read the first line three times because it confused me. I really shouldn’t read after 11 on a Friday night!
What a fantastic use of technology! Thanks for sharing. I think this is so important for people to see. I might have to share this with my college students.
