Even vikings need a helmet in Denmark these days

Rather missed ‘Vikings’ recently although sometimes you have to watch it from behind the sofa as someone meets a particularly grisly end.

The Danish Road Safety Council and agency & Co are doing their best to revive the genre with this tale of Svend, about to go off looting and pillaging in England, reminded by the family to wear a helmet. Directed in epic, albeit muddy, style by Tore Frandsen.
