IT SIMPLY IS AN ACHIEVEMENT. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO LINK ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR BAND IN 1993 WITH NORWEGIAN HAM? CRASH TEST DUMMIES AND HAM? PERHAPS YOU MUST BE AN AWARD WINNING AGENCY TO DO SO.
Bates is pulling of the story in cooperation with Jens Lien, a director of an Oscar-candidate-of-a-film. Director Jens Lien is pulling off this amazing story with great humour and a dash of naive Norwegian charm. A sweet girl is serving the visiting stars bread with ham. A cracking sight of the band with their backs to the camera, eating in delight, is the trigger to their major hit – Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm. It’s liberatingly funny and I will always think of Crash Test Dummies as I eat my ham in the morning. Mr. Lien’s already critically acclaimed feature film SØNNER AV NORGE simply must be great, so run to the cinema near by. The production company is Einar Film & Fortelling and the producer is Guri Neby. Post produced by Lene Cathrine Albertsen and Hocus Focus: Ove Kenneth Nilsen (editing) and Haavard Albertsen (colour grading and online). Sound design by Håkon Lammethun and Lydhodene.
