Summary: Vidar Magnussen (Sherlock Holmes) and Bjarte Tjøstheim (John Watson) from the Norwegian TV-show "Underholdningsavdelingen" are both fans of the BBC series "Sherlock". When they realized the similarity they decided to make a parody.
Reccer's Comments: This little three-and-a-half minute video has already reached cult status in the fandom, with catch phrases being thrown about (Let's do a jump kiss! Rebooting is for cheesecakes!) and fanart popping up on tumblr. It pokes fun at the 'homoerotic subtext' of the show - or at least at fans who read that into it - but there are plenty of other gems in there as well, like 'John' unquestioningly following 'Sherlock's' instructions, no matter how bizarre, and that blasted auto-correct. The resemblance of the actors and sets to the BBC originals are really quite striking, and as this was additionally shot and directed in a similar style, it ends up being a very accurate send-up.
