What do Finns think of this?

When I heard it first I was shocked.

How can anyone make fun of a national hero?

Especially Yle, a tv/radio company, which was created first because country needed one national tv company. Other tv companies weren't possible to work, because there wasn't anyone rich enough to create one. It was financed by the people. And it still continues to work with forced money from anyone, who wants to watch tv. Even if you don't watch Yle channels. Next year you have to pay for it, even if you don't own a television.

Yle should keep up the knowledge of history, not making untrue movies. I wonder if it would be ok to make Urho Kekkonen a little romanian girl in a movie? Or Paavo Nurmi as a japanese astronaut?

But now... I just don't mind. Do whatever. Mannerheim is dead, he don't mind if you lie about him. I'm making a movie about Yle some day in the future, it's might be little off the truth, but it's ok I guess.

Outrageous, he was white as can be and besides a great General/Marshal he came up with Marskin Ryyppy.
