Will Ferrell has an awesomely confusing beer commercial with dubstep music but it’s airing only on Sweden’s TV3. In the commercial, a visibly tanned and curly-haired Ferrell opens an Old Milwaukee beer can and joyously shakes it around on the sidewalk. He finishes by giving himself a high five and doing a couple fist pumps by his hip.
The whole thing seems like a personal joke for Ferrell, considering the brand of beer isn’t even available in Sweden. This ad is one of several promoting Old Milwaukee that appeared on YouTube over the last three weeks.
The marketing campaign is kind of brilliant. As the Internet catches on to the randomness of promoting a beer on TV for an audience halfway around the world, the ads are going viral.
Watch it here:
Kanye told the crowd, “Everybody put your hands in the sky right now. Say hell yeah!”
It’s been a good couple of weeks for Kanye. His album with Jay-Z broke the U.S. iTunes Store’s one-week sales record when it sold nearly 290,000 downloads!
Does this mean we forgive Kanye for the Taylor Swift incident and he is now cool again?
Michael Moore has offered $20,000 to help bailout Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, reports TMZ.
Moore just blogged, he will do anything he can to keep WikiLeaks “alive and thriving as it continues its work to expose the crimes that were concocted in secret and carried out in our name and with our tax dollars.”
Swedish prosecutors are challenging Assange’s bail, so he will remain in custody until that’s worked out.
Over the past year we have interviewed some amazing musicians, and many of those people have been from Sweden. They must be putting something in the water because there is some amazing music coming out of that country. Perfect example – Miike Snow. They started off doing some song writing for people like Madonna and Kylie Minogue, and now they are using their talents for themselves. And we aren’t the only ones who think their amazing as can be seen with the huge amount of hot girls they have as fans!
TMZ says the major issues yet to be resolved are child custody and the division of assets. Both parties have been advised to keep their final deal confidential and keep the property settlements out of the court file.
Both Tiger and Elin have their own team of high priced lawyers working on their behalf. An immediate matter they are trying to address is jurisdiction. Although the couple lived in Florida, Elin will be moving back to Sweden. Consequently it maybe easier to move forward with the proceedings in Sweden.
A source close to the family tells Us Weekly, “It’s 100 percent happening … It’s going to take a long time to go through. [But] she will go through with it. She is all about being a mom. She will do it slowly and carefully.”
Elin has also moved full stream ahead with the construction of her new house in Sweden. “She is definitely planning on spending a lot of time there — they are gutting it … She and the kids are going to be spending most of the summer there. Without Tiger.”
However Elin will be looking at properties in Florida as well as Tiger will not let the kids leave the U.S. full time, reports PopEater. “No way would Tiger let Elin leave the USA with his children. You can say whatever you want about Tiger as a husband, but he has always been a great father. He knows his marriage is probably over, but he will never give up on those kids. They mean the world to him.”
More signs are pointing to Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren divorcing. Considering she just purchased a $2 Million home in Sweden could be a large indication that she plans to abandon ship. However PopEater reports that there is no way the kids are going with her.
“No way would Tiger let Elin leave the USA with his children. You can say whatever you want about Tiger as a husband, but he has always been a great father,” an insider tells PopEater. “He knows his marriage is probably over, but he will never give up on those kids. They mean the world to him.”
This maybe also an indication why Elin has been looking at houses in Florida. Close enough for Tiger to see the kids, but still lets her live a separate life.
When the phrase “pop music” is put in the same sentence as “Sweden,” not much comes to mind other than the 70’s phenomenon foursome ABBA.
Erik Hassle is out to change that.
While the 21-year-old pop singer has already had success in Sweden and is quickly gaining momentum in the United Kingdom, he has bigger dreams: North America. And considering his first single, “Hurtful,” was featured on MTV’s reality show The Hills, the young musician is well on his way.
“It’s always fun to play for the people from your own country but right now the focus is outside of Sweden,” Hassle told andPOP. “I’m quite young still and I’m enjoying being in the world – the big world!”
With wild-yet-styled curly red hair that has quickly become the staple of his image, Hassle making an impression.
His debut album, Pieces, was released in Sweden in August. It has a worldwide release date of Feb. 23, 2010 from Universal Republic Records.
Four Swedish newspapers plan not to cover Britney Spears’s upcoming concert because of outrageous rules for using photos from the show, reports Perez Hilton. The pop singer has placed several restrictions on using photographs of her taken during the upcoming show, including no resales, expiration of shots after 30 days and not being able to use photos if she looks bad.
The media contract “prohibits papers from publishing pictures of Spears which arrangers deem unflattering” and states that the American pop star be given ownership rights to the pictures her management finds favourable.
The concert is planned for Tuesday in Stockholm and is part of the singer’s current world tour – The Circus Starring: Britney Spears.
“The next step would be to tell critics they can’t write anything critical,” said Roger Turesson, photo editor for Dagens Nyheter, one of the papers boycotting the show.
