The terrors of Swedish television

As a kid, I found both the Jolly Green Giant and Mr. Clean at least mildly alarming, so I'm sympathetic to the tens of thousands of Swedes huddled in terror before the image of Adina Fohlin, the model singing a Scandanavian folk song in a stark commercial for Apoliva skin-care products. They've even formed a Facebook group, I Am Scared Of The Girl In The Apoliva Commercial, with nearly 100,000 members. It's not really surprising, since the girl is singing, "I like to eat the livers of Norwegian babies!" Okay, I am possibly making that up, though since she's singing in Swedish, who knows?
