IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE THE RELEASE OF THE MUSIC VIDEO NILSEN ON YOUTUBE CREATED MASSIVE CHAIN-REACTIONS IN SOCIAL MEDIA. THE RAPPING AND RHYTHM IS COOL OF COURSE, BUT IT IS HOWEVER THE LYRICS WHICH HAS MADE AN IMPACT.
Particularly on Oslo girls and boys, I would imagine. Don Martin wanted to create his own Oslo-Anthem, and his subjective description of Norway's capital city is obviously recognised and shared by the many. And Don Martin might have a point, feeling the need of updating the beloved songs about Oslo from our most treasured artist - "I am so Oslo that you can call me Nilsen. Rudolf, Lillebjørn, Joachim. Choose which one". Note that the lyrics originally are in Norwegian. As a matter of fact, it is the first time Tommy Tee - the Godfather, the Master and the Veteran of Norwegian Rap - has tested how it feels to rap in his native language. Quite interesting, and as a true Oslo-man himself, it indicates that he really, really recognise the city of Oslo as his partner describes it. Shot in black and white, but relivingly free of gloom - it is down to earth realistic and uplifting. Hear, hear and well done by director and producer Kristoffer Klunk. Honour and glory to editor Henrik Berge too, who loves his work so much that the music video is cut after ordinary working hours at Hocus Focus.
