Guy Explores Forgotten Cold War Nuclear Bunker In Norway

There are a lot of different hobbies out there, some of which are fairly normal, others that are quite strange.

One of the ones that is quite strange, yet utterly brilliant at the same time, is appearing in the background on TV. I don't mean being some kind of serial extra, cast in shows like Hollyoaks and Eastenders, I mean just wandering into shots of live broadcasts.

Paul Yarrow makes a habit of doing this, having appeared in the background of BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky News. Whenever a camera crew sets up in public he simply makes sure he's behind the reporter doing pretty much nothing.

YouTuber Olav XO also has a hobby. Though nowhere near as out-of-the-box as Paul's, it is fairly interesting.

Much like Beau Ouimette, whose video of him exploring an old well went viral recently, Olav explores abandoned places in Norway.

In this particular video the Norwegian visits a Cold War nuclear bunker, which is apparently very dangerous due to the amount of fungus and toxic fumes.

Watching it in a point-of-view type style is terrifying, so you can only imagine how it would have felt to actually be there.

He navigates through the caves and tunnels, looking upon the void. In there the power supply is completely cut off, but you can see the lines that once carried it throughout.

He finds an old rotary dial phone, as well as a load of rusty beds and trolleys, before coming to an end in the water cover bunker, meeting the 'end of the line' where a rusted door stands.

After the footage finishes Olav gives us one last note, saying that Norway has a population of 5.2 million, and in the forgotten bunkers there's room for 2.5 million. He then asks "should we forget these places?"

The previously mentioned Beau Ouimette, better known by his YouTube handle Aquachigger, decided to explore a well where the unknown awaits.

In the video, after testing the sturdiness of the ladder, he decides to take the plunge into the dark oblivion.

"This is very shaky and very slippery," he explains, his voice starting to waiver as he climbs deeper into the pit.

He then notices the rotten-looking timbers holding the well in place, however it's not the perilous ladder or the slimy walls that put the fear of god into him.

No a greater darkness there lies.

In the crevices of the rocks lie a horrifying number of snakes.

"I hope they don't fall down my jacket," he says, with less conviction than in hope.

But his ordeal is not done, there is more to follow, he then finds the skeletons of a mystery creature.

"Alright, I think I've had enough of this place," he concludes. "Yeah we're idiots aren't we. It's like Indiana Jones with all these snake pits."

Since it was posted to YouTube the video has been viewed more than 30,000 times.

Columbus, Scott, Hillary, hell Harrison Ford: eat your hearts out.
