Norway – Spirit in the Sky: Official Video Reaction

Oh yay! KEiiNO released an official video for Spirit in the Sky! No more relying on that badly-lit performance from Melodi Gran Prix. Let’s give it a look:

Tom Hugo, you are a good looking man. You’re also probably the nicest man in Norway, because when someone came up to you holding this wig and explaining the concept, you were like, “Well, you’re the costume expert! Whatever you think will work!” Because THIS. DOES. NOT.

Fred knows. When they asked Fred if they could put a badly-styled wig on his bald pate, here’s the look he gave them:

But the wardrobe folks got him back when they ended up covering his entire head with ice.

And what about Alexandra? How does she fare? Well, her wig ears aren’t quite as bad as Tom’s….

…but her wig is all about the visible roots. IT’S A WIG. You’re not fooling anyone. At least allow her to have hair that doesn’t look like she’s been too busy frolicking in the forest to visit the salon.

The rest of the video is also full of these low-budget choices…

like reusing all the face masks from Romania 2018.

But nothing can dampen the enthusiasm and fun from this tremendous bop.

I feel like Norway knows it has a potential winner and is doing everything possible to avoid hosting the contest next year. Step it up with the staging in Tel Aviv, okay?
