This Austrian Teacher Made a Korpiklaani Video with His Students


So, yesterday, we got this e-mail, which included a link to a video called “Tanssi Korpiklaani” (Finnish for “Korpiklaani Dance”):

Dear MetalSucks Team!

I’m a sports teacher at the Groß Enzersdorf Highschool ( a small city close to Vienna/Austria). I’ve started a little music video project with some of my students and this is the output of it.

My kids and I would really appreciate it, if you could mention it in your online magazine. That would make them just so proud of having achieved such a thing!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

My dearest greetings,
Mag. Johannes Maier

Well, frankly, I do have a TON of questions, but most of them have to do with my geocentric ignorance and general inability to take Korpiklaani or people at Renaissance Fairs seriously. But Johannes seems like a cooler-than-average teacher and I’m glad to be in a position to bring his students some joy, so rather than ponder how this could possibly have come from the same country as Sigmund Freud, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sachertorte, I’m just going to leave this here:
