“That” Norwegian Olympics ad

This sports ad from Norway was released to time with the Olympics, and includes three Norwegian sports stars.


The funny thing is, it’s a wee bit sexist too.

But only the Norwegians could turn a kinda sexist commercial into an effective statement on diversity.

It’s fun. Enjoy.

    It was ok for a while but it turned to shit at the end. I can`t stand lesbians, the most screwed up people I`ve had the misfortune of running into. They`re always mean, rude and full of hate towards me beacuse I was born a man. Like it`s something I did on purpose. Awful people, just awful and the commercial sucked.

    I cheered for Frisbee Guy knocking the puck away. Also cheered for the security screener’s totally unruffled response to it, instead of locking everything down. That’s how you know this wasn’t an American commercial.

    Ha! Suck it, Russia.

    Love it. I was doing some ogling …. at the guys.

  • I love Norway. If you haven’t watched it yet, watch Lillyhammer on Netflix.

  • dula

    That was charming but enough with the constant CGI overkill and repetitive, melody-challenged music in modern media.

  • It’s funny, because I was kind of annoyed about the whole “here we go with guys ogling a beautiful woman again” thing, only to be pleasantly surprised :)
