A bowl of Nordic efficiency

Arla Skyr gives Icelanders the strength for any job.

A new online video from Wieden + Kennedy London follows Orri, a boy who delivered messages that came into the only telephone in his small Icelandic town in the 1960s. What gave him the strength to run around town, over mountains and through blizzards, no matter how brief, inconsequential or kind of sad the messages were? Arla Skyr yogurt, of course. The Icelandic yogurt brand is now available in the U.K., and what better way to establish the new brand with Brits than a video that both shows the impossible benefits a bowl of the stuff provides each day and features a series of very, very dry jokes.
