Time is up for the next M2 Magazine Sneak Peak! With only 5 days left to the release event, it is about time to introduce you to the man on our cover this year. Once the theme creativity was decided, he and his companion were some of the first ones we thought about. They have eaten their own flesh in television and make every appearance in a new, innovative and sometimes odd way, whether it is in their own show “Får vi följa med?” or in first class at “På Spåret”. Additionally, they seem to be incredibly clever and competent. They’re simply just that kind of people that bewilder you so that you just want more of them. You want to understand them and get answers. How is it possible to both come up with the ideas, like eating your own flesh, and get them implemented? And being so relaxed, down-to-earth and quick-witted about it? So, out of our curiosity, we tried to contact them and they answered and revealed that they “are terrified of empty rooms for our upcoming tour”, and so, they dedicated an hour for us. Or more correctly, Fredrik Wikingsson did, since Filip Hammar lives in Los Angeles. We did not quite expect him to show up.
If you have ever heard Fredrik Wikingsson talk, you won’t have a hard time imagine that out of one hour with him, you can get a lot of information. In about 180 kilometers per hour we got to know this idea machine through anecdotes about his childhood, his attendance at school, his travels, his meetings with people (such as SSE students) and the backgrounds and assessments of TV-shows.
“They do all these peculiar things on TV, but are there ever anything they wish they hadn’t done? Fredrik responded that it would probably be ideas that didn’t turn out very good, or that turned out to be lame. On the other hand he doesn’t regret them since they too turned out to be learning experiences.”
For all the juicy parts of the interview, written by Ronja Bjurulf, make sure to grab a magazine with Fredrik’s face on next week!
