All Dreams Are Fulfilled

by Andrew MacGregor

Håkan Hellström: “All Dreams Are Fulfilled” - 5 mins 15s

Håkan Hellström’s ‘All Dreams Are Fulfilled’ has more than a hint of ‘My Generation’ about it, but the track plays second fiddle to Fillip Nilsson’s quirky promo. Shot in Gothenburg’s Ullevi stadium after hours, the piece sees Hellström one-up David Attenborough by playing drums with a proboscis monkey. Well, sort of.

The long-nosed primate is actually a CG creation, which also gives Hellström the chance to do his best Andy Serkis in a motion-capture suit. The result is undeniably silly, but one can’t help but admire the promo’s tongue-in-cheek pomp. For Gothenburg fans, however, it's a painful reminder that football's return is still a way off.
