Trivia

Lars running in a hamster wheel during their act in the Semi Final is a homage to the Ukranian entry in 2014 - a song called Tick Tock, sung by Mariya Yaremchuk (which came fifth). Props, staging, costumes and dancing are as big a part of Eurovision entries as the songs themselves. The hamster wheel was also featured in the notorious "interval act" in 2016 when the contest was hosted in Stockholm, Sweden. The hosts, comedian Petra Mede and previous winner Mans Zelmerlow, sang a song called "Love, Love, Peace Peace", celebrating many famous props, costumes and tropes featured in entries over the years.

Made a burly old icelander weep and laugh!
28 June 2020 | by kolbeinnhelgiiSee all my reviews

This is one of the very few times I have felt such emotions while watching a movie. Me and my gf cried a few times and laughed a lot. Many people "not Icelanders" criticise this movie saying that it's embarrassing for Icelanders and make us look stupid. Well to tell you the truth they got us in my mind pretty accurately. Made a frickin account just to write this. Thanks from iceland and have a good one.
