Ahahah, that was a great little film on that old escalator joke Swedes usually tell about Norweigans (and Norweigans probably tell about Swedes.) Very funny.

Also, Becel? Wow, becel do utterly horrible testomonial ads around here.

Wonderful observation, nicely shot, okay acting, but wtf has this got to do with Becel? A classic Ha-ha-ha-What?



I assume Becel is running some sort of heart-health promotion whose connection with margarine, absent any other information, is indeed obscure. But the spot as a vehicle to promote the heart-health thing itself? Genius.

An interesting idea. But I have trouble making the connection between heart health and not being able to climb 4 steps.
