This Is Why You Should NEVER Let A Norwegian Talk You Into Doing The Limbo Blindfolded.

The Limbo dance originates from the Caribbean island of Trinidad. It became popular by dancer Julia Edwards and singer Chubbby Checker in the 50s and 60s and is still performed by people at bars and parties.

A bar is held horizontally by two people or two vertical bars on each end, while contestants attempt to move under the bar with their backs leaning towards the floor. The person who falls or knocks the bar off is eliminated from the dance contest. After each person completes their turn, the bar is lowered. This continues until one person is left and is declared the winner.

Erik Solbakken and Hasse Hope, hosts of the Norwegian comedy show Karl Johan, hit the streets of Oslo to select random people to see if they could do the limbo. Little did the participants know, there's a slight twist.
