Footage of the humorous, laid-back way two Norwegian policeman cope with a combative drunk has amazed American viewers after it was posted on the video-sharing website LiveLeak.


The footage from Nattpatruljen, a Norwegian police reality show, shows two policeman in Tromsø, northern Norway, good-naturedly picking up a drunk and taking him off to a drunk tank in the local jail. 
“I am not intoxicated for fuck's sake," the man shouts. "The fucking police are hunting me down. I get so fucking angry." 
To which the police laugh gently, and then apologize for ridiculing him.  "You are a little funny right now," one explains. 
"Can I bring my dick with me?" the man then roars. 
"Yes if it hangs on," answers the policeman with a chuckle. 
"The American version would have ended with 16 gunshots at the 0:03 time mark,"  wrote one of he 70 commentators on the video.
"With a taze at the 0:01 mark," wrote another. 
The video had been viewed 144,700 times by Friday morning.
