Words from the creator John Leerdam, he describes the Amsterdam Zuidoost culture as:  “One where there is not much taxis driving around; the need for transport is not any less. So there has been a circuit illegal taxis, and the snorder culture is a beautiful coat for the stories of all the different cultures that exist in the Southeast to hang on. These are stories, John says that you hardly find back in the theater or on television.”

Snorder caused a furor during the earlier times 1999 to 2003 when it was presented in the Parade and the Cosmic Theater, Snorder was the bouncer of the annual festival of Hollandse Nieuwe. The theater soap managed to put down culturally diverse stereotypes with a realistic touch and lots of humor.
