In a story that I can see my good friend BL breaking, Blackburn's Morten Gamst Pedersen apparently has been moonlighting. He and four of his compatriots, going by the name The Players (get it), have been shaking their bon bon back in Norway. According to Pedersen's page over at Wikipedia, their first single is called "This is for real" and is sure to be a #1 hit in Norway.
All credit to Bob over at The Offside for blowing the lid off of this one. I'll have to take him at his word when he says that the video could use a little work. I tried to log onto the site to see it, but just got the typical Scandinavian runaround.
You'd think that if the Fox Sports World Report weren't so busy planning for Michelle Lissel's big sendoff, they might have had the resources to report on this story. Maybe the BBC will dedicate it's next Panorama expose on the recent wave of Scandinavian music trying to influence our children. The societal problems of the 1970's can be directly attributed to ABBA and their sexy music. Let's not let it happen again.
