My Swedish Alarm Clock

After a rather late night last night writing stuff for the blog (the light went off around 3am), I was awoken by this at 8am this morning.

The future of Sweden has rarely looked so……..bushy.

And the scrappy shot tracking the Sport Sedan is especially for 1985Gripen – it’s a Dolphin Grey 9-3!!!!

  1. Don’t think I should translate what the sign on the vehicles said…

    Swade, you are aware of that you took pictures of a Volvo several times? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Okay, I’ll bite (or maybe I’m just dense) – what was that? Why was it happening at 8AM? Why did they remix “Walking In Memphis”? Why? WHY!??!?


  3. Why?
    Cause during this week, almost every “hi school” is graduating now, and that truck riding, boosing and wild partting is tradishion…We, the boring sweds, completely loses it during this time of year.

    The midsummer comes up in just 2 weeks and then we’re at it again. But then it al stops and we go back to beeing boring for a year…almost.


  4. I just ran the numbers in my head… 8am in Sverige is 2am here in New Hampshire. Suffice to say if a mobile sausage-fest blaring remixed easy listening from the early 90’s came barreling down my street I’d probably be a bit ticked. Then again, you don’t see that every day so thanks for the laugh! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Walking in Memphis was an odd choice of song. It sounded a little like the Cher version but I don’t think it was.

  6. I think it’s absolutely hilarious that they’re towed around by a tractor. What are they doing up at 8 a.m.? If you tried to get high school students around here to organize an event at 8 a.m. on a weekend nobody would show up! Did you say they’re “boozing”, vector220? What’s the legal age to drink in Swedne? Now that alcokey is starting to make a whole lot more sense! ;-0

    I’m honored for the “shout-out” Swade. I’m glad to see your recent celebrity hasn’t tarnished you any. You’re HUGE in Sweden! What David Hasselhoff is to Germany Swade is to Sweden! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Am I the only person you’ve ever heard of who liked Dolphin Gray? I mean, I wouldn’t be surprised, I’m just asking. Even the SAAB employees I’ve spoken with didn’t like it!
