Can’t believe they nicked Derren’s image like that though 😉

Thanks to BlueBottle (@isihac)
I love it!
Erm, why did they use Derren’s picture then?
Is that for real? I would be creeped out right now….
Derren, I was expecting a video or a TV set. Are you going to sue them or accept 12 fine Swedish women as payment or abracadabra hocus pocus the advert to magically disappear into thin air? If that were my advert, I would accept and keep the 12 heavily chested Swedish birds as payment. I’m off to work literary magic.
Hahahah….what a great IKEA advert 😀
You love yourself hahaha great add though!! Really cool….
I love how that Twitter account is short for I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue. Derren, can you please play Mornington Crescent?
Ha ha! Brilliant!
Amazing what you can do these days!
Nearly had me there…
Did they not get his permission for this?
Personally I’d be really offended if they used my face for that! What an oppressive advert, or maybe it’s just me?
Because of course, the TV and Radio tell us the truth, and of course… we can trust in that! Hah! What a joke.
So they didn’t ask permission to use Derrens image? Can they even do that?
The plus points to this was seeing Derren praised as a hero : ) …great advertising if nothing else. But really.. this advert just made me feel irritated. It probably doesn’t help that it’s 4am, and I’ve just woke up from a horrible apocalyptic type nightmare where everything was really oppressive, somehow, this video really seemed to capture it lol.
Personally, I’d sue… (even more advertising!).. but that’s just me…
Am I the only one who doesn’t get it?
@DerrenBrown I think they like you over there, Derren =P
p.s. I think they nicked some of the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack for this =P
hahaha that is great! it’s like actually watching a dream Derren has had!!
ha ha ha …. that’s very clever!!
Who can I make one of those for?? hmmmmm
Huh, so derren brown is aired in sweden?
why not in my country?
Am surprised at the amount of people that don’t get it – maybe I should have made one with Coops in instead.
Just shows what the power of Mind control can do for your popularity in Sweden. And he didn’t even have to win Eurovision!
(Naturally he’s already that popular in the UK!)
Derren wont be too upset I think .. ehehehe .. I’d give my permission as well .. wonder how much he got for this though. It’s kinda funny that there is for so many people sort of truth in this. Indirectly. If you interpret stuff from him in a certain way at times … regarding your own self.
Swedes will surprise you .. the image of the sexy blond swedish chicks is not really what Sweden is about.
Cool .. all swedish chicks are now under mind control of Brown .. and guys .. new followers are being born due to this add … so it works so well for Brown as well … which is not that bad ..
Love the add .. although .. what it really is about .. having paid for your .. etc … that is not what I remember of this add for sure …. I read another message as usual .. use the add for deeper things … via my own mind ..
Folks – if you go to http://www.tackfilm.se/eng you can build your own film just by uploading an image.
It’s a really clever campaign – to get people to pay their TV licenses i.e. you are a hero if you do.
About fucking time!!
erm… I mean…
WHAT THE SHIT?
Clear evidence that Derren Brown is future king of the world TBH.
It’s an advertisement builder, sorry to be the spoiler, you’ve all (most of you anyway) have been fooled! Nice advert, would be better if it was real
I’m a citizen in sweden, and from my knowledge they arent airing any of Derrens material here. Never saw that add tho, but that woman in the video I recognize from swedish television… Which makes me think it’s not a “haha hoax”.. Which is in turn is making me quite concerned for what kind of ad’s they are showing on TV..
A little more information on what it is would be appreciated. From the little I could tell it seems are they are gonna start airing Derren on swedish TV? About bloody time if you ask me.
Some of you guys are really dumb…you can put in whatever picture you want!
It took me about five minutes to realise this is a joke…It is a joke, right? 😀 I sat there, watched the video, remained silent for a while, then just said….”What?” Then it hit me, and I completely cracked up. Awesome job, Bluebottle!
P.s. Why Sweden? 😛
You know, you many people here refuse to pay the fee for having TV. I think it’s a ridiculous installment and would prefer not to…Well, I have friends who are not paying. ;-D No. mind-tricks for me, thanks.
That Was Cool!
To clarify, the ad is for Swedish TV Licensing and the thing with the ad is that you can ad whatever photo you want to the ad.
The ad is for Swedish TV licensing and you can add whatever photo you want to it (ie they did not use Derren’s photo, he put it there himself).
Haha loved that!! Very good!! 😀
You can make ur own one – that is cool
cannae wait to make one of my friend and send it to her!
I’m in Sweden over Christmas, I shall look out for that advert 😉
Utter ego smothering goodness.
Hey Simon, let’s not ruin the experience (read: confusion) for others.
Very clever viral. I’ll be having some fun with this! Thanks BlueBottle and Philis! Is it the first of it’s kind?
When this blog post come up, I saved the link to look at it later, but now it doesn’t work so I can’t see it The site brings up a message: “Thank you for visiting our international hero application! Unfortunately, we’ve been forced to close this site for non-Swedish users, due to the huge amount of visitors”.
Any ideas how to get around this?..any videos posted elsewhere..? 😐
