You're not in Kansas anymore…

(Another) Disclaimer (or, possibly, just an anecdote)

So, Hanna and myself were innocently walking the streets of Trondheim the other day, when a man came running after us. This being election time in Norway, we naturally assumed that he was going to try and talk us into voting for some party or other, but lo and behold, he wanted us to model. Oh yeah. And not in a sleazy way either.

Turned out that Mercur, a local shopping centre, was shooting a commercial in the street. They had advertised for models, but apparently attendance was low (or, more likely, visually disappointing. So much beige!). We, being our usual colourful and stylish selves, caught the guy’s eye, and were subsequently headhunted to pose in our fabulous outfits.

What were we wearing, you ask? Well, Hanna looked green and gorgeous in her own design:

while yours truly wore a colourful and snazzy vintage dress:

If you’re in Trondheim, look out for these lovely ladies in a cinema near you, as the advertisement is to be shown in theatres this autumn and winter (or possibly later..).

Love, Mari the model

    That’s so great! I didn’t think things like that actually happened. Congratulations!

  2. Thanks! It was very fun, and did wonders for our self esteem. Self esteems? (Who cares – I’m a model now, I don’t need to be able to write!) – Hanna
