My question is: Why if both of them are Danish are they talking in (broken) English?
The guy doing the raiding is English, from the UK lol :P
The idea the gamer is not Danish is explicitly contradicted by stream itself, namely around 3:44 the kid asks (translated) "Do you speak Danish?" which gamer responds with something which I will transcribe as "Oh Dan". The narration immediately states that the kid sometimes speaks in Danish, which he will translate. Later around 4:42 the kid again asks (translated) "Are you Danish or what?" to which gamer responds "Yeah Yeah Dan" translated as "Yeah, I'm Danish". Not just "I speak Danish", but "I'm Danish".
I'm not familiar with the streamer's background, the only thing I could easily find is he states his current location as the UK in social media, but of course that doesn't really speak to his nationality or, more relevantly, his "brother" who was the one actually playing game and interacting with the kid, which streamer merely edited and commented over later. So I fail to see how my question doesn't stand, in that kid had no real justification for continuing to speak in Engish to the gamer after establishing they both spoke Danish. Now perhaps the kid (sometimes) conversed in English, because his other friends/team-mates were not Danish and he either wanted to let them listen or for conversational "inertia" or whatnot.
But the idea the gamer is not Danish, i.e. lied about being Danish yet was conversant enough to claim to be in Danish (and translate the Danish conversation), would be least convincing, and indeed strange rationale to me.
