Blogs Are The Television of Our Time. Meet Foki.

Posted · 3 Comments
After a hard night out on the town me and my friend went out for a cozy Valentine’s day walk on Södermalm. We started out with pizza (hey, we were out until 6 in the morning last night, give us a break), and went on to pick up a couple of semlor (if you ever go to Sweden, make sure you grab a semla!).

But as we walk past the bakery, we see this huge commotion on the other side of the street. There are policemen, police cordons, a police car and an army of aliens. Yes aliens! Wearing strange but awesomely put together outfits with bows in the hair, bright colors, and extremely advanced fingernails and make up. WTF?

As we get closer we realize that they are also quite small – about the size of 9-12 year old humanoids.

We work up our courage to walk into the rowdy crowd and find out what’s going on.

It turns out that the aliens are not aliens at all, but fans of the seventeen year old blogger Foki, who is visiting the jewelry shop Cocoo to meet her readers and sign autographs for Valentine’s day. Awesome!

I think that it is good to show stuff like this to marketing managers every now and again. Blogs are real. Blogger celebrities are real celebrities. When I was a kid, television was the hub around which celebrity and conversation spun. Blogs are the television of our time.I also got some interviews with  some of these aliens, which I’ll edit and post later. 

Stay tuned!
