Made in Sweden for Export

Life in Sweden is depressing, according to this television special from 1975. So depressing that even the sight of the Abba girls dancing in very short skirts can’t cheer up the morose populace. (To cheer yourself up with this gladsome sight, watch from 37.20.) Looks as if those desperate Swedes are just going to have to resort to spanking their wives:

Dunno about the Swedes, but I feel better!

Made in Sweden for Export, produced by Leonard Eek, was the Swedish entry in the 1976 Montreux Comedy Awards. Humiliatingly, it lost out to the Norwegian entry, which can only have deepened the depression. Swedish wives, beware!
