COMING UP: A NEW AND TASTY PRODUCT FROM KIMS, THE NORWEGIAN STARMAKER OF SNACKS. NO KIMS, NO COSINESS OR SO THE SLOGAN GOES (IT SOUNDS MUCH BETTER IN NORWEGIAN, BY THE WAY).

The crackling, crunching, shattering, cracking sound of crispy maize Crunchos is the product in focus in this latest commercial film from the production company Tangrystan Productions. A bunch of up and coming young people are divided by graphical squares and triangles. The blond and blue-eyed girl with a black leather jacket. The black and brown-eyed with a light blue t-shirt. The incredible handsome guy with sparkling teeth and a denim shirt. The redhead and the smashing latino – the whole colourful lot is having so much fun and such a laugh over the sound of… not music, but Crunchos. Oh yes, and the one and only supercreative tv- and dancing celebrity Steinjo Grieg Halvorsen has both directed the commercial and made the crunchy music. What an energy from the additional comedian, writer and actor. Produced by Tangrystan and post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus. Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen and sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. KiMs Crunchos surely sounds good…

THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE JOKER STORY, SELECTED BY THE CUSTOMERS OF 2012 - SO CHARMING, SO TRUE AND PERHAPS SO RARE THAT IT BECAME A COMMERCIAL FILM.

So it goes: We are a group of men from Elverum who like to go fishing. Every summer we drive more than sixty Norwegian miles to Lierne in the North of Trøndelag. My oldest brother Jon's birthday frequently collides with our yearly fising trip, and the last time he became sixty years old. He said he did not want any celebration. However, the rest of us wanted just that. So we went to see Hege, working in the local Joker store, asking her about the possibility of buying a cream cake. We know that they actually don't have those, but Hege has a mum who loves to bake. And that very same evening, the nicest surprise in the world came along (perhaps you have guessed it already - the sweetest of cream cake). So both the jubilant and the rest of us experienced that good old fashion service had not become old fashion or out-dated at all. Nice, or what? Storytelling from the real world at its best from director Ubbe Haaving and the production company Trøbbel Film. Produced by Miriam Pedersen Eeg, post-produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus. Edited by Thomas Løvig, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.

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?

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.

COME WITH US TO ITALY. TO THE LAND OF OLIVES, VALPOLICELLA WINE, SUNDRIED TOMATOES, ROME AND PIZZA. DIRECTOR JOHANNE HELGELAND AND THE PRODUCTION TEAM FROM FANTEFILM MUST HAVE BEEN PRETTY CONFIDENT IN THE PRODUCT THEY ARE PROMOTING.

The pre-cooked PIZZA ORIGINALE is brought all the way back to its homeland Italy to be tested by "real Italians". Travelling around to beautiful places, incidental people are asked to take a bite and tell us what they think about the taste. Of course we believe that they are totally honest and truthful. Aren't all Italians? Just the sound of the language mixed with a bit of Opera, piazzas in front of churches, the wine ranks and the old men with moustaches make us believe that this is the real thing - the real Italian Pizza Originale. What a blessing, and we are convinced -this is it, folks! Produced by Hugo Hagemann Føsker and post produced by Pia Nyhus and the following team from Hocus Focus: Henrik Berge (editing), Haavard Albertsen (online and colour grading) and Johannes Ringen (sound design).
