Alexander as the character “William” in a Swedish parody of “SKAM”.
Clara Henry and Alexander Rybak played the characters “Nora” and “William” In Melodifestivalen’s “SMAK” (taste), which is a parody of the Norwegian popular youth TV-series “SKAM” (Shame). “SKAM” has become very popular also outside Norway, and has been broadcast both on Swedish and Danish TV.
Because the original song at point 1.14 is blocked by YouTube, we have replaced the song with “Dovregubbens Hall”, played by Alexander 🙂
If the YouTube video is blocked in your country, or you don’t have access to YouTube, you can watch the parody on Vimeo. This video has the original song.
Love Love Peace Peace
Alexander Rybak took part in the interval act in the Eurovision finale 2016. Watch the video below. The number is called “Love Love Peace Peace”, and according to Edward af Sillen the audience during the show 60 years has never seen a parody of the Eurovision in Eurovision. The bombastic tribute is about the trick to win Eurovision, which is analyzed at an institute in Switzerland and emerges the best of the winning songs:
– Everything crazy you have seen, from old ladies who bake bread to men in hamster wheels, and it’s apparently okay in Eurovision.
The number where the hosts Mans Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede – appearing in Charlotte Perrellis pink winning costume from 1999 – singing and dancing, shows a mix of everything. In addition to the old bread baking grannies and men in a hamster wheel, Alexander Rybak playing the violin on stage, while bare-chested men playing drums and then, among other things, Lordi pops up.
Alexander appears from 1.09 in the video 🙂
