Ten days of such a mode of life have passed, and Martin became as much like a Viking as possible. This is especially noticeable in contrast when a starving man gets to a gas station with an irresistible desire to eat some ham in vacuum and smoke a cigarette. At the same time he argues with the cashier on such a high intellectual level that causes laughter from the audience. That is literally the definition of 'comic' — the inconsistency of the expected and the real. As for the fable allegories with animals that you will see, they are not just a witty element but they also grant the characters a moment of catharsis and the opportunity to unite.
The element of chance and randomness is extremely important in comedy — when circumstances are against the characters and do not allow them to take control of the situation. People resemble a pinball ball that fate throws in all directions, even if it is not even ready for such changes. That's why the creators gave the newborn viking a partner. Musa is a guy wounded in an accident, whose life depends on how quickly he gets to the ferry to Guddalen. Now Martin sees a purpose in life — he has a mission that takes him out of anabiosis.
