'Nothing wrong' with naked Swedish farm student video

“This kind of thing happens all the time,” the school’s principal, Peter Gustavsson told The Local.

“There’s nothing wrong with being naked. That’s still allowed.”

The eight-minute-long video, entitled “farmers daughters”, opens with a shot of a young man in bed with two young women. As the scene unfolds, it becomes apparent that all three students are naked.

“Damn, do you know what I just realised?,” says one of the girls.

“It’s our student cabaret night tonight. We forgot again!”

The two girls then run out of the room and proceed to let two other naked girls, both of whom are bound and gagged, out of the back of a truck.

Gustavsson explained that students at the school, the Natural Resource Use Programme high school (Naturbruksgymnasiet) in Strömma in western Sweden, periodically organise cabaret nights in which they perform satirical skits.

“These nights are a way for the students to poke fun at themselves and be creative,” he said.

Other scenes in the film feature half-naked young men sitting in a pig pen, a bare-bottomed young woman laying bareback on a horse, as well as a trio of young ladies who appear to be showing their breasts to a cow.

Nevertheless, the tone of the film is light and humourous, rather than erotic, and the students take great pains to keep their sex organs and nipples covered.

“I think the film is rather nice, actually. No one is drunk; there is no alcohol, no drugs. It’s just a bunch of naked kids having fun,” said Gustavsson.

In one sequence, two naked girls summon a third girl who is sawing down a tree with a chainsaw wearing only a protective helmet and lumberjack’s harness, while another scene shows a surprised young lady covering her nipples with a pair of rodents as she is called to follow to other nude co-eds.

As the video progresses, more and more bare-skinned students gather on the back of a tractor which eventually ends up at the door of one of the school’s buildings, at which point all of the students disembark and run inside the building.

In the closing scene, the students are seen slamming on a door.

The film was shown for the first time at one of the school cabaret nights in front of an audience of about 30 people, according to the Aftonbladet daily.

When the film ended, the door to the auditorium opened and the stars of the film dashed into the room naked, adding yet another creative twist to the project.

According to Gustavsson, the students in the film all graduated in 2009 and thus would have been 18 or 19 at the time the movie is believed to have been filmed.

He suspected the video was made while the students were still attending the school, however because "otherwise they wouldn’t have been able to get access to the buildings and the equipment".

Despite the school’s farm theme, the video indicates there may be a number of budding cinematographers within the school’s ranks, prompting Gustavsson to think about offering classes on making movies.

“I’m actually considering it. These students have something they want to say, so we might look at adding an elective class on film making,” he said.

Story continues below…

While Gustavsson remained relaxed about the film, there were a couple of aspects of the cinematic work which bothered him, in particular the discrepancy between the amount of skin shown by the young women relative to the young men.

“From a gender perspective, the film is out of balance. These girls are good students, capable students – they don’t need to be running around naked to prove anything,” he said.

He also regretted that the school’s efforts to educate students about the risks of putting compromising material on the internet appear to have fallen on deaf ears.

“They’ve now lost control of their film, and I find that problematic,” said Gustavsson.

He also explained that, had he known about the students' plans for their cabaret show, he wouldn't have approved it.

“We require that they tell us ahead of time what they plan to do. However in this case, the students pulled a fast one on us and showed something that we hadn’t agreed upon,” said Gustavsson.

"They've now lost control of their film, and I find that problematic," said Gustavsson.

Ah, come on, we're not talking about that "Star Wars Kid" thing that led the guy to depression. These girls are just going to get a lot of publicity, nothing else :).

Okay, no one is going to get that reference.

But I did want to add that one of the things I liked most about Sweden was how straightforward and sensible everyone was, even public officials talking to the media. Overly bureaucratic at times, sure. But no manufactured indignation like I'm used to in the U.S.

Sweden is one country known for her creativity and let it be

known that way as always and if outsiders or immigrants cant

take it then close your eyes or move out.No other way,please as it's part of Swedish creativity,that's all.
09:21 November 23, 2010 by sherkovic
absolutely! nothing wrong with that. Where is the video? can I have a look please? ^^

Interesting to meet a mature School Principal who is not freaking out in response to a

supposed level of moral indignation manifested by 'pillars of society'.

We all know how these pillars have crumbled and fallen, Samson-like, shaken by the tremors of hypocrisy.

There's nothing wrong with nudity - unless you live in a society that wants to make money off it, in which case there's everything wrong with it. Guilt and 'forbidden fruits' have always been good sellers throughout history.

Just think, there would be no human race (according to some) if Adam's fig leaf had

Physopella fici.

If nudity was natural, we would have been born nude ;-)

An amoral people/group does not understand it is amoral. It just thinks others are prudish, and even sees itself as "enlightened" because it has thrown off the "chains" of morality. And when it finally sinks into the depths of depravity -- even with animals, as this article clearly details -- will it know then that it is amoral and depraved? No, it does not have the capacity to realize that on its own. It just continues to sink into the hole of depravity, feeling more and more "enlightened" the deeper it goes into that hole. This is mankind sinking to the lowest common denominator when the faculties of discernment have been disabled. And you know it has happened to a society when it sees nothing amiss with underage girls cavorting this way.

The American folk humorist Lewis grizzard made the significant distinction clearly: "Naked is when you ain't got no clothes on. Nekkid is when you ain't got no clothes on and you're up to something."

The point is not that they were naked, but that they were NOT 'nekkid'.

What a beat-up! It shows 1 naked man and about 5 naked women, they are adults and are covering their genitals. The only thing this film illustrates is the relative ease that Swedes have with their bodies and a state of undress. . The narrative to the film is not particularly strong. I doubt that it will 'go viral'.

Bad English !

"young woman laying bareback on a horse" - unless she was putting down carpet or producing an egg, that should be "... lying bareback ..."

it's just 'So Euro' to me! in the US, the principal would've been forced to resign.

I think it shows tact in the principals views to discern between what's a juvenile prank and something serious. not many will agree i think.

ha ha, very nice & funny. Swedish girls are gorgeous. I was just there in Sept. and every girl was good looking and tall. To see the video youtube it and try "funny and weird student movie" in the search

I wonder what all these people who support this would think if those chicks were their own daughters... But sex sells, and I find it poor that you always have to get undressed to get some attention. And I do not refer this to Sweden in particular, but also to Germany, the USA, the UK and anywhere else.
