I do understand how pointless this image would seem to someone not familiar with the story:)
The stories about Espen Askeladd (The Ashlad) are known to pretty much all people in Norway, and probably most of scandinavia.
I´m not going to write down the entire story here to explain (it´s long..), but the scene here is from one of the most famous situations he is in, fooling a troll to cut up his own gut.
Most countries do have their own well known folk tales and stories that contains scenes instantly recognized by residents of that country.
As such, the brand Dovre wanted us to do a couple of well known scenes from the stories, and have "Espen" wear Dovre clothes.
Hope that explains a little more of the thought behind the campaign... :)
