For those who don't know, "winner winner chicken dinner" is Dennis' catchphrase, he said this a lot after wins in F3.

u/Sitron_NO Dec 07 '22

And one of Dennis' sponsors is "Den stolte hane", which makes these nuggets (and all sorts of different chicken-based foods)

No it's not. It's an old gambling phrase. And was featured online in gambling movies. PUBG probably popularized it in other countries though

u/User11-61 Dec 06 '22

Yep, definitely originated as a gambling phrase looooong before PUBG haha. Specifically, from what I’ve heard, rooster fighting. The winning rooster and it’s owner were announced as the winners, the dead rooster, chicken dinner.

u/KellerFF Sir Lewis Hamilton Dec 07 '22

Thank you for quotations that completely yet incorrectly translate what I was saying. I appreciate it, seriously.

And the boomer stuff is crazy, I was born in the 80s and the phrase winner winner chicken dinner does not even sound modern, to me. Especially, not enough to be mistaken with regards to its inception. Like seriously…

simpler version incoming

That’s like saying WestWorld ™ the one that came on HBO… invented the cowboy vernacular.

u/roctans McLaren Dec 07 '22 edited Dec 07 '22

1) you’re welcome

2) It’s not that deep. I don’t think anybody reads that phrase in-game and thinks “I wonder which century this phrase originated in”. They’re kids, it’s a “funny” phrase, who cares. Especially when there’s absolutely nothing in-game to drive them to think it’s from anything else but the game.

3) Lmao “cowboy vernacular” is WAYYYYY more mainstream than the singular phrase “winner winner chicken dinner”

4) I’m so sick of the whole “kids these days are so dumb, memes are dumb and emojis lololol” mindset. Society is changing and maybe you can’t relate to their culture but overall I’m pretty optimistic about this generation.

Hilarious. The point is that it's a clever double entendre, with the obvious chicken nuggets AND the fact that Dennis uses it a lot, which is lesser known. Anyone with basic thinking capacity can understood that it meant that Dennis uses the catchphrase, not that he literally coined it. No wonder you're the only person to say this.

u/kris33 Dec 07 '22 edited Dec 07 '22

That's modern Norwegian for you.

Actually for all the general terms there, "fast food", "spicy", "nuggets", "limited edition" - we mostly only use the English variants. Translating those words would be weird on packaging. We associate fast food and dumb marketing with Americans, translating it doesn't really work.

"Begrenset utgave av rask mat med sterke kyllingklumper" would sound extremely stiff.

u/YoyoEyes Dec 07 '22

I keep forgetting that KMag is Danish instead of Norwegian.

32

u/FalconIMGN Alex Jacques Dec 07 '22

Probably because people keep overusing the 'Viking' moniker for KMag. For English people, any Nordic person is a Viking.

28

u/AxePlayingViking Kevin Magnussen Dec 07 '22

Are you implying that Danes weren't Vikings? Lol

15

u/FalconIMGN Alex Jacques Dec 07 '22

I mean that most of the original Viking invaders in England were from Norway, not that Danes weren't Vikings. But other tribes from Denmark invaded Britannia, such as Angles, from whom the name 'England' comes.

23

u/AxePlayingViking Kevin Magnussen Dec 07 '22

So one might say that the "viking" moniker is just as relevant to use about a Danish person as a Norwegian...

4

u/FalconIMGN Alex Jacques Dec 07 '22

Yes, but I'm pretty sure the commenter I replied to isn't Norwegian, else they wouldn't mistake KMag as a Norwegian.

u/YoyoEyes Dec 07 '22

Also because Magnussen is a common enough Norwegian surname and it's easy to forget that Denmark exists lol

u/Issah_Wywin George Russell Dec 07 '22

I think fondly of Denmark every day. It's the strong, play hard work hard older brother that took care of Norway while they were on hard times, raised them back up alongside themselves and after being roommates with Sweden and Finland together for a bit, managed to establish themselves independently. Without Denmark we'd just be provincial Sweden.

He's extremely popular. Only Erling Haaland has a bigger sponsor appeal than him in Norway atm, even beating Casper Ruud (tennis) , Viktor Hovland(golf) and Magnus Carlsen.

37

u/BunnyCatLove Alexander Albon Dec 07 '22

Tbh I don't think he is that recognizable outside of a certain demographic of young men.

Ødegaard and Carlsen are definitely better known regardless of the sponsorship money, which arguably has more to do with the sport he is competing in.

Tennis and Golf just aren't really big in Norway which isn't shocking considering the climate. Chess never had the sponsorship money that traditional sports do.

5

u/Issah_Wywin George Russell Dec 07 '22

Chess got a surge in media coverage when Magnussen struck it big, and while formula 2 is really good, it isn't formula 1, or the WRC. Rally and Formula 1 will both draw attention. As a nation I feel like motorsports has more room to grow. It's just such a contradictory thing to the climate friendly image Norway fosters, so media might be a bit shy about putting it on prime time TV.

Atle Gulbrandsen (president the Norwegian motorsport asosiation) said in interviews that only Haaland was above, and he knows Hauger and his team really well. I'm not saying his more famous, just a bigger sponsor target.

5

u/DobbyChief Dec 07 '22

Super biased and simply wrong.

2

u/AndreasV8 Dec 07 '22

Currently there is no way he has more pull than the current nr 3 in tennis and 9th in golf. I highly doubt he has more pull than even some in more niche sports like Sander Sagosen (handball) or Klæbo(skiing). There are also Karsten Warholm and Jakob Ingebrigtsen who are miles ahead in global or local sponsor recognition. I could probably make a list of 20 Norwegian athletes he is behind until he gets to F1 or at least much more success in F2.

Nope; F2 drivers in general are completely irrelevant (in the nicest way possible, I swear) to the public eye.

Bear in mind that most of the public in almost any country can only name like three F1 drivers, one of whom is Michael Schumacher.

The only people who will have heard of him are people interested in motorsport. It's very unusual for a pre-F1 driver to be known in Europe.

31

u/Hansemannn Dec 07 '22

In general yes. In a small country as Norway, Hauger is indeed known very well.

Hes on the news when he wins a F2 race etc.

Nobody is disagreeing with me. They're making the point that this guy in particular attracts interest in Norway because he's their closest shot to F1.

This driver is an exception to the norm.

u/jonpacker Oscar Piastri Dec 07 '22

I’ve been really surprised by this actually. Lots of people I wouldn’t have suspected know who he is. He’s the only thing a lot of people know about racing (plus Petter Solberg). When I talk to football people and tell them I’m into F1, they bring up Hauger. He’s a lot better known than I expected.

From a mini interview with Verstappen: they don't do too much strength training because it bulks up, but longer distance cycling is popular; kind of difficult to get enough food energy in when you have a lot of endurance in cycling. These are baked nuggets containing 14% fat, 23% carb of which 2 sugar, and 13% protein, totalling 519kcal for the whole package.

u/Meerkate Kevin Magnussen Dec 07 '22

This brand (Den Stolte Hane/"The Proud Rooster") and many like it do put a lot of money and resources into at least making consumers feel like they're making sustainable grocery choices - as OP said, Norway is strict on animal welfare policies, on paper. This should also result in a better quality, less "slimy" processed product.

Whether these producers actually manage to keep such promises is another debate. Luckily the country's population isn't huge and the economy is rather solid, so although demand for meat keeps rising, production facilities should be able to produce decent quality products while upholding an arguably reasonable quality standard. Green alternatives are also becoming more popular so meat producers need to be able to meet demands from a younger generation.

Good question! Norway has quite strict laws when it comes to chicken products, but I wouldnt be surprised if it’s chicken slime

Excellent. That's pretty much all I ask of my mystery meat snack products.

Amid an endless sea of bland and formulaic sponsorships, this is actually really cool. I want to see Snack King replace mission winnobarcodeBUYCIGARRETES as Ferrari’s title sponsor.

u/Slippynippy69 Mercedes Dec 07 '22

Cause it sounds dumb in Norwegian, the English writing on the box has a nice ring to it

u/Completeepicness_1 Yuki Tsunoda Dec 07 '22

English writing is somewhat common to see in Norway, some things just sound better that way, and something’s don’t have a direct translation. In this case I think it’s written in English because of F1/F2s international popularity
