I actually worked as an extra on this commerical in Miami. We all had a good time. The producers came by and greeted every extra on the set. Food was incredible. Production staff very professional.

That's some hefty faith in Punk right there. A google of the brand only brings up this FB spot, with a similar aggressive funning around http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=62036142027

Going to call cultural ignorance on this one. Have no idea if Punk is a virtue in Norway, or whether whacking a golfball into an altarpiece is cool there, but I'm happily baffled by this one. Doesn't make me want to get my hair cut and learn golf though. Looks like a lot of people had a lot of fun making it though. Bit sad for the client maybe, but that fat punk in the middle somewhere deserves credit for trying.

In the US this may be "just another commercial" embracing a counter culture, however, in Norway's highly conservative culture there is a lot of emphasis on breaking norms by the younger generations. If the purpose of the commercial was to influence the consumer group after the "Baby Boomer" generation then they should have a decent level of success with it. Gen X'ers in Norway will appreciate it and Gen Y'ers will love it. The spirit of the commercial does not appear to be to focus on ethical dilemmas like golfing in a church or trashing an office but to express yourself and "unite" within that differentiation.

Thank you for the info, that does shed a more positive light on things yes. I mentioned the golf-in-church moment not because I thought it was about ethical dilemmas, was just wondering if it'd be problematic getting broadcast clearance. Thanks again for the background.
