The 'Creepy Dutch TV Host' thread
is fast becoming a train-wreck, for various reasons. Context seems to be one issue; possible acts of paedophilia seems to be the other.

First, the thread itself carries no NSFW warning, and doesn’t tell people clicking the link that we're essentially about to watch paedophilia. As others have said in thread, there may be some humorous context here which is supposed to make this OK, but as I have said in-thread, there is no context that can make what I saw OK.
Secondly, the post reads like an AskMe question. I quote "Perhaps it's a joke, perhaps the guy is sozzled? That is all. Actually: if you know more about the video, do tell." That, krautland, is an AskMe question.
Perhaps if you had asked for context about a video you saw on Break.com where some dutch TV host seems to molesting a kid (with an option to link to it in the [more inside].... and this is very optional), no doubt people would have helped you get the context you're seeking and a train-wreck would have been avoided. Instead, you're presenting a video on Metafilter which to all intents and purposes is depicting paedophilia; this is going to start a train-wreck, one way or the other.
Put simply, krautland's post is all sorts of wrong and needs to be deleted.
