    People saying that this man is a typical Danish guy is pathetic he is totally dark, of course he is white, with white features but his dark hair and eyes are so strange, I wonder if he is mixed with some other European group most Danes and Swedes are still blond and have light eyes and are quite freckled

    contrary to what many are led to believe, this is the classic and predominant scandinavian phenotype, not super tall, blonde hair, and blue eyes

        this kinds of maps are oudated and unreliable as hell… its impossible to draw a map that specifically points out such an specific detail of a population like that, things like hair colour, eye colour, much like type of noses and lips, all this traits vary greatly from one euro country to the other, even WITHIN some countries… And Mads obviusly is not ”dark” by any means, he is not an Alicia Vikander type, he is not odd for his nationality/ethnicity at all, his skin is pale and his hair is light brown/dirty blond, not to mention his really thin nose and lips, also his light brown eyes… I just pointed out that most scandinavians are not these super pale, blonde and blue eyed ”vikings” that many people think, but rather mid-pale, light-brown haired like Mads, after all, the germanic peoples were not the only ones to inhabit that region of europe

        BTW, these maps are not outdated and unreliable. And even if they are off by quite a bit, a majority or plurality of Scandanvians are still light-haired and light-eyed. People are trying to be too cute, these days, disproving plainly observable and accessible realities.
