A Tommy Nilsson Please

A Tommy Nilsson
Last month most of the Swedish media had the same story on the front page. Former rocker Tommy Nilsson was changing his name to Black. He had turned fifty and needed a new image with his soon the be released new album. The next day it was revealed that it was all a ploy. Marabou's new licorice chocolate had the name Black. So since that day I always ask for a Tommy Nilsson when I want this chocolate.

Men är den verkligen ätbar? Kombon lakrits och choklad känns för mig lika obegriplig som apelsin och choklad. Brrr... :-)

Som lakritsfantast så gillar jag både Tommy Nilsson och Fazers nya Karl Fazer Liquorice Dragé.

Almost absurd and very funny!

"Rocker" serious??

Pretty good piece of marketing. How's the chocolate, by the way?

Lowell said...

Silly. But probably sells lots of chocolate bars.

Stefan Jansson said...

If you sing in a heavy metal band I guess you are a rocker. Tommy did that back in the day.

That was a pretty effective bit of publicity for an old rocker and a new chocolate bar.
