Original video here in case the embedded one doesn't work.

Jerry: Stig, I have a friend who's recorded a Christmas album. Can we put it up for sale in the store?
Stig: ...Jerry, you mean we're supposed to put your friend's Christmas album up for sale? In the store?
Jerry: But it's Christmas.
Stig: Okay, fine. Just put them down in the far corner, and we'll fix it.

Stig: But...! Jerry! Jerry, didn't we agree... Oh. You're Jerry's friend?
Måns: Yes, that's right. I'm the one who's recorded the Christmas album.
Stig: But Jerry, why did you put the albums over here?! They're supposed to be in our very best spot! Have a some gingerbread [men]. Come, I have something to show you.
Måns: Uh. Thanks.
Stig: Jerry's friends are my friends.

"Buy Jerry's friend's Christmas album. 10 kr go to Childhood [charity organization."

Not as good as EMD's, but I take what I can get. :)

Also: Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Maybe I explained that too luddigt - I figured Stig was hesitant because he figured it'd be a lousy CD recorded in someone's shed/basement and why would he ever want to sell that in the store?, not because it was Jerry's friend. I don't know. I'm getting more uncertain the more I try to 'analyze' the commercial. :P

I think Måns is too straight laced to handle the improv that was needed to make the commercial work. I don't think Darin would have been any better. Ola, though, he'd probably have nailed it - he's seems as carefree as the EMD guys do!

aaah I see. Hmmm...well in all fairness, I don't think the commercial is meant to be analyzed at all really :P haha

I think you hit the nail on the head there. Definitely.
