(Commercials on TV can be considered a necessary evil. So many are annoying, but every now and then one comes along that is the perfect combination of product, marketing, humor, and local culture. In my seven years here in Norway there have been several that have captured my attention. I thought it would be fun to occasionally share some of my favorites.)
Today’s commercial, another one from Tine, combines the scenery and jubilation of Julie Andrews’ “The Hills are Alive” (from The Sound of Music), Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best” (including her video’s close-ups of stamping hooves and flowing tails), and a little Goat Attitude (the voice over translation is “It’s easy to think highly of yourself when you make such good cheese”) … and you have a perfectly humorous thirty seconds.
