Zlatan is amazing in more ways than words can play.
Zlatans Volvo commercial is made by Forsman & Bodenfors, the most awarded agency in this part of the world.
Together with Zlatan Ibrahimovic we have done a celebration to Sweden. It’s our country’s unique nature that inspires and challenge the people at Volvo when they develop their cars.

I think FB are really great but this is by far the most boring commercial I have ever seen they created (sorry). But the PR and hype around is fantastic.
Instead of only creating commercials I think Volvo and FB could create Volvo Zlatan car design so consumers could buy, drive and play like Zlatan on the roads.

Sweden is famous for its super brands, created with a Swedishness culture. A small US agencie Sköna use Swedishness to grow, did find them in Silicon Vikings newsletter.
Here is how they discibe there culture based on Lagboken:
At Sköna, we implement the Swedish model. This means we don’t like hierarchy and we’re allergic to red tape. It means that we collaborate on exactly everything because we know that the best ideas come from the unlikeliest of sources. Our ideas have been translated into ”The Sköna Lagbok” – the manual for how we treat each other and our clients. Like in every language, words have more than one meaning. This Swedish word is no exception. Literally, Lagbok means teambook. Not a bad way to start. But colloquially, it has come to mean the “Law of the Great Land”.
They point out specially: Under-promise and talk less, listen more in my opinion that is the most Swedish points in there list.
Cool that they create a Swedish US cultural (in my opinion a perfect match).

Its fascinating to finally see more than me blog about Apples weakness as in this blogpost: Is Apple the next Nokia? does Rasmus point out:
It’s just worth remembering that the way we look at Apple today, was exactly the same way we looked at Nokia in 2007, six months before the iPhone was launched.
Rasmus Ankersen, The goldmine effect
In my blogpost: 6 Ways Apple Becomes Prey for Sharks did I also point out Apples weakness. Now is Apple weakness floating on the surface. Soon perhaps we will see an attack on Apple from competition? Now is the time to attack Apple and win the loyalty from their fan tribe.
Thanks to sharp Ulrika Bergwall for sending me this post!
