Transcript for Norwegian Reality Show Focuses on the Lives of Birds
Namaste, everybody. Let's do "Pop news" shall we? Good morning to you. Six friends grappling with life, love. All centers around a favorite coffee shop. Sounds familiar, right? Norway has their own twist on the classic sitcom. This is the pips show. It's one of the most watched in the country. It captures every peck and whistle of this motley crew of wild birds as they drop into this version of central perk. And occasionally, they do have guest stars. And hilarity ensues. That's their guest star, the squirrel. Am I supposed to know what ornothology is? Ornothology is the study of birds. This is like central perk. And people watch this for hours. And the squirrel jumped in here. This is from the same station that brought you instant classics like the knitting marathon. And there was a show that was nothing more than a train. A camera attached to a train. Before you go to sleep, you put that on. It knocks you out. That's why it goes for hours. You don't change the channel because you're out. Norway's royal family tweeted -- get it, tweeted? This is why we love Norwegian broadcasting. Says it all, doesn't it? And you brought it to America. Thank you. I'm here for you. Hey, we reported on a lot of health issues. You know, we get into how to live better. And in "Pop news," I do that often for cats. I take it very seriously. We showed you the cat treadmill. We showed you the cat -- this is the cat that even though cats hate swimming, this cat lost a lot of weight by swimming. I brought you that, as well. And now, I bring you the latest trend for the little guys that love their tender vittles a little too much. In Russia, this cat has lost 4 1/2 pounds by hanging on for dear life, while her owner cycles for miles and miles. It gets the whole core. Isometric. His owner says he's so good hanging on, that he accompanies him on tour de france-type bike trips. They're about to train for a marathon in siberia. Losing weight by holding on? Yes. I am going to have George carry me around all day. If that's the case, I'll lose four to five pounds. And I'll enter the olympics. I want to see. I'd watch that for hours. And finally, happy repeat day, everybody. Happy repeat day, everybody. I won't do it again. You knew that was coming. The annual event is every year on June 3rd. And repeat day is a great day for those with selective hearing. Repeat them over and over again. You're not nagging today because -- It's repeat day. Repeat it with me. It's repeat day. It's like groundhog day around here. What would you repeat over and over again if you could? Sleep. The snooze button, like I did this morning. I began it with repeat day. My producer and I guessed that you would say that. That's "Pop news." We're so predictable. Just sleep deprived.
