The Season 1 was our first international TV-series and its a combination of stuff we already showed in earlier Finnish series, and new footage shot in English language. We had a lot of footage from a period of five years for this show, so we glued everything together with a lot of interview bits!
The series has an insane amount of stunt action and we run into a lot of censorship trouble in many countries, as the footage was considered too hardcore for TV.
What happens in the series? Well, we end up in the hospital for a record of 8 times, burn down our house, hit Jukka in the balls with a baseball bat, wreck down a supermarket, hang out with Bam Margera and Steve-O, and much more! Like Season 2, the series is a story of our normal lives in the Arctic Circle. Stunts, pranks and all kinds of bone-breaking fun!
- Jarno, Jarppi, Jukka and HP
