IT IS TIME FOR A NEW AND HOT MUSIC VIDEO. THE SONG IS OVER YOU AND IT IS COMING FROM THE ARTIST A-LEE.

The visuals are hot in many ways. Not only are we taken to a warm place in the southerly hemisphere, but we are also introduced to the Top Model babe Sylvia Geersen from the Netherlands. What a combo – and the music is rather nice too. The man himself says to the site 730.no that he thinks this single suits perfectly as the fall is here, the summer fling is over and people simply need to move on. He might be right. We are in a deserted landscape of sand and stone, and A-Lee is convincingly singing that he is over you, while we are seeing a smashingly beautiful couple arguing in the bed and at the beach. Suitcases are packed, pictures are thrown in the water and chess (!) is being played. I don’t know what the big deal is; however that might simply be because I did not listen well enough to the lyrics. The bottom line is: A-Lee drives off into the desert with the pretty girl. The end. Directed by Joon Brandt and produced by Ivan Jamne. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen, and his team from Hocus Focus: Henrik Berge (editing) and Haavard Albertsen (colour grading). If you still are scratching your head, wondering why the name A-Lee sounds so familiar – we can help you out. Elisabeth Carew, say no more…

COMING UP: A BRAND NEW AND SHINY COMMERCIAL FROM JORDAN TOOTHPASTE, LOOKING LIKE A MILLION DOLLARS.

Coming up: A brand new and shiny commercial from Jordan toothpaste, looking like a million dollars. Surrounded by dazzling white, and with highly creative effects as means, a Norwegian health celebrity is telling us that it is the small things in life that is important for a sound body. Like the icing on the cake, she smiles as she encourages us to stuff ourselves with smaller pieces of cakes. Likewise to use the stairs instead of the elevator, the bike instead of the car and not at least go for products that is nicer to the body. Each and every point is beautifully illustrated with smashing colours, delicate silhouettes and imaginative Lego blocks. All of this for some toothpaste - Jordan Complete Protection - without sulphates and parabenes. According to this film, this product is one of the right choices to make to get stronger teeth AND better health. The production company is Fantefilm, with producer Elle-Beth Lønnestad and director Johanne Helgeland. Post produced by Hocus Focus and the team of Pia Nyhus (post producer), Henrik Berge (editor) and Haavard Albertsen (online and colour grading). I wonder why I get this urgent need to eat the whole cake and an enormous amount of chips as well... Does that mean that the commercial is working or rather the opposite?

ONE OF THE MANY GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE FALL IS LOTS AND LOTS OF NEW TELEVISION SERIES ALONGSIDE NEW SEASONS OF OLD ONES.

To promote the brand new Norwegian reality-series SMÅBRUKET (= The Smallholding or The Small farm), the production company Fantefilm has made an excellent film in cooperation with TV 3. Once again the great divide between the city and the countryside is in focus. The fast and furious, noisy and tall, hard and cold City versus the slow and gentle, calm and small, soft and warm Countryside. This divide is shown with great use of images and paste. In the middle of it all is the very small and red headed TV host with the name of Ravi (or Ivar Johansen), perhaps more known for his music and musical programs. The dream of a harmonic life in the country seems tempting for many stressed up citizens of the city. In the first episode we get to know four families, with and without children, which are given the opportunity to check it out. Is the grass truly greener on the other side? The promotion film is directed by Kenneth Olaf Hjellum and produced by Audun Lynghold Wittenberg. Post production by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Henrik Berge (editor), Bengt Ove Sannes & Haavard Albertsen (online and colour grading) and Johannes Ringen (sound design). To be continued every Thursday at 21.30 on TV3...

WORK IT HARDER, MAKE IT BETTER, DO IT FASTER, MAKES US STRONGER, MORE THAN EVER, NEVER OVER, OUR WORK IS NEVER OVER.

-At first I am not sure whether we are suppose to dance after the seductive rhythms of Kanye West's massive hit "Stronger" OR be curious of images of well-dressed men. Well, we can do both. TV 3 is promoting a new season of the Norwegian reality-series HOMSEPATRULJEN. It is adapted from the original American series Queer Eye, which hat its origin all the way back in 2003. Already premiered on our screens, the most beloved Norwegian queer television face Per Sundnes (called the Captain) is leading the team including the hairdresser Alex Cornelius, the handyman John Andre Hanøy, the stylist Espen Hilton and the personal trainer Tore Vik. What can possible go wrong when these fellows role up their sleeves and start to help a selected few and lucky people to freshen up their homes in creative ways. This is a pumped up teaser from TV 3 in cooperation with the production company Fantefilm and director Kenneth Olaf Hjellum. Produced by Audun Lyngholm Wittenberg and post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus. Edited by Henrik Berge, online and grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Johannes Ringen. With statements like: "We are coming with bells on" from The Captain, it is impossible not to be touched. So watch this space every Tuesday 21.30 at TV3.

NORWEGIANS LOVE PIZZA. ALL KINDS OF PIZZA. PERHAPS THAT IS WHY THERE ARE LOADS OF EXCELLENT COMMERCIALS FOR DIFFERENT KINDS OF PIZZAS OUT THERE.

The latest from Big One Pizza is created by the production company Trøbbel Film and it is a charming little film. It is perhaps playing with our laziness (what do I know) as a young and sweet pizza delivery boy is bringing pizza to the 40-something white male (in his underpants?). However, more important is "the package" coming together with the pizza, the package of a bottle of coke and a film on DVD. The rather confused boy in green looks like a question mark as he is told to take the pizza himself, back home or whatever. What? And why is the white male in his 40ies already eating a slice of pizza? We have decided not to spoil the whole point of this humorous commercial, but we can give you a hint: Frozen Pizza! Directed by Ubbe Haavind and produced by Kristin Emblem for Trøbbel film. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and the following small but outstanding team from Hocus Focus: Henrik Berge (editor) and Bengt Ove Sannes (online and colour grading).
