This Is A (Fake) Ad For Something [VIDEO]

Half a million views overnight. Via Entertainment Weekly:

Sure, it’s all in the spirit of April Fools’ Day, but that doesn’t make watching the most fearsome fighter in Westeros advertise a brand of bottled water any less fun. Hafthór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson, who’s placed in the top 3 at the World’s Strongest Man competition every year since 2012, released a fake commercial Friday advertising for “Heavy Bubbles,” his own brand of dumbbell-shaped bottled water that promises to make its purchasers as strong as him. “You have 2 kilos, 5 kilos, and 10 kilos,” Björnsson advertises, as the massive bottles appear and crush the table. If only Oberyn had bought a few in that 10-kilo size.

  • If I go to the trouble of watching this video he had better stand up and be naked.

    • McShane

      I’ve got my crampons, some rope, and a map. Race you to the top.

      • Capritaur

        Forget the top, I’ll stay just below the tree line.

        • Nic Peterson

          Swing on that tree limb.

            Song of Solomon, chapter 7, 7 Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit. 8 I said, “I will climb the palm tree; I will take hold of its fruit.” May your breasts be like clusters of grapes on the vine, the fragrance of your breath like apples,

      • Duh-David

        I’m gonna climb that until I get to the top, and when I get there… just sit there for a while.

    • Duane Dimitrov

      Agreed, he’s soooooooo hot.

  • Good Shot Green

    No body hair? Not even pit hair? Meh.

  • vorpal

    LOL I love the fact that in his first scene as Ser Gregor Clegane on Game of Thrones, they show him viciously chasing down and slaughtering peasants outside of King’s Landing for no apparent reason other than fun.

    And then when Cersei daintily tiptoes over the dismembered body parts and entrails of his victims to go welcome him to the capital, I just about lost it and died laughing.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Can we get him to crush some of this idiotic legislation of late?

  • The Sentinel

    His heavy bubbles make me sweat.

  • pj

    is he single?

    • It appears that he is, but he has a portrait of his young daughter tattooed on his right forearm.

  • Rex

    Once, just once I’d like a mountain of a man like that in my bed. Although I’m thinking the bed might not hold him.

    • clay

      Once (a couple of times) I had a lacrosse player who had “coach” fantasies. He had to be told to hold his own legs up, for both our sakes.

    • motordog

      I have…it’s fun!

  • Michael Rush

    He just wants to Pump …. You Up .

    • rabbit_ears

      I’m up already… Mmmmmmm…

  • Paul_in_Dallas

    Still one of my favorites.

    • DrRobY

      HOLY SHIT!!!! How come I haven’t seen this before? It’s fucking amazing.

    • fastlanestranger

      Your post is why I absolutely love comments sections on blogs. You’ve turned me on to some new music I’d never heard before. Thank you Paul_In_Dallas.

    • That sends shivers down my spine.

    • Holy effing shit! Add grace and style to the list

  • Adam

    really have no idea how people can find this monstrosity attractive.

    • DrRobY

      Easy. REAL easy.

    • Arrowhead74

      He looks much better with your ankles on his shoulders.

      • Rex

        Is that even possible with a man his size?

        • Octavio

          Yes. Yes, it is possible.

          • Rex

            Do tell….

          • Indeed it is. Sorry, we were too busy to take pictures.

      • eyechart

        That’s what my coworker said yesterday when he showed me this video. I said I’ll stay on my knees, thanks, and just look up…and up…

      • TJay229


      • DrRobY

        Those traps were made for ankle resting.

    • BlueberriesForMe

      Do show us a picture of yourself so we can judge your level of “attractiveness”. On 2nd thought, please don’t.

      • Adam

        So because I find a guy who probably uses unnatural means to eat 10k+ calories a day in an extremely unhealthy lifestyle unattractive, I must be ugly. So rational.

        • Jeffrey

          Go body-shame somewhere else. It’s not going to work out for you here.

      • Adam

        Yes, because I find someone unattractive who clearly eats over 10k calories regularly, uses unnatural supplements, and is probably extremely unhealthy due to said lifestyle, I must be incredibly unattractive myself. Very logical comment there.

    • Thus speaks the voice of envy.

    • motordog

      I’m not going to grudge you, Adam…to each his own, after all. Lots of straight dudes ‘have no idea’ why I like men in general, because they like women and find other men sexually unattractive. I just shrug and say “I like what I like”. Personally, I’ve never found twinks that appealing (with a few notable exceptions), but I know lots of guys who love them…no big deal.

  • bkmn

    He was overdressed.

    • pickypecker

      Needs more male nudity.

      • bkmn

        There is always room for more male nudity.

        • motordog

          Less is more they say.

  • fiizok

    Sheesh…I always had secret fantasies about Bluto, and Mr. Björnsson bears a strong resemblance. If there were a man who bore a striking resemblance to Popeye in the tub with him, I’d have to rush home from work and lie down with a cold compress on my forehead the rest of the day.

    • Octavio

      Sigh . . . Bluto. So misunderstood.

    • clay

      Yeah, your forehead, right.

    • motordog

    • JCF


  • Brian in Valdosta

    no THAT’S how commercials should be made!!!!!!!!!!


  • Michael Rush

    Important update from the Trump campaign …..

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      If only…..

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    DAMN! BAM! WHAM! That’s how it’s done kids.

  • Cuberly

    Lucky tub.

  • boatboy_srq

    Brilliant. And YUM!

  • I had better not have to go to the trouble of flying all the way to Sweden just to find out that this guy is actually Russian!

  • TJay229

    How big is his dick I wonder?


    • No matter how big it is, it will look small against the size of the rest of him.

      • ZhyKitty

        Imagine being the person who cooks for him and cleans up the kitchen? I bet that’s a full time job.

        • Apparently it’s part of his Game of Thrones contract that he has to be given time off to eat every two hours.

          • ZhyKitty

            See? There you go. That really would be a full time job, cooking and cleaning up after that Clydesdale of a man. lol

          • From a Time page about him:

            ” The GOT star said he eats around six to eight meals a day, and only occasionally cheats on his healthy diet: “I eat a lot of sweet potatoes, a lot of meat, fish, chicken, good fats like cocoa butter, almonds. I love greens, like spinach, avocado, broccoli. I eat very healthy overall—but because of my weight, I need fast carbs, easy carbs. So maybe before a training session or after a training session, I eat what I want.” ”

            So the actual cookery would be straightforward enough; but he’s a bachelor so it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that like many strongmen, bodybuilders and so on, he cooks for himself — or that he only prepares a hot meal twice a day. Just about everything he mentions there is good eating either raw or cold.

    • DrRobY

      This is something that I thought of many times.

    • Joseph Miceli

      I don’t care. The view from the rear is AWESOME!!!!

      • motordog

        Agreed…I’ve never been a dick-size queen, as I’m much more interested in the face, physique, and (most importantly) ass.

        • Joseph Miceli

          I’ve always maintained though that a big dick is like a handle, something to hold on to and steer with while doing the deed. 🙂

  • Heiko Ludwig

    He once got dressed up as The Incredible Hulk to show up at a 3-year-old boy’s birthday party. I like him a lot:

    • Heiko Ludwig

      (Video has subtitles available)

      • Octavio

        No need. Everyone understands Icelandic. /s
        (thanks for posting)

    • How adorable! Thank you for posting that. And damn, I knew he was strong but he’s crazy strong!

    • David Milley

      Awwwww …

    • clay

      toddler with Grandma around 3:13-15 doesn’t look fully convinced that this is a good idea

  • Rod Steely

    That is excellent!

  • Octavio

    Well, ain’t he just chunkolicious? El Squeeze approves, too. 🙂

  • TuuxKabin
  • That is just delightful!

    He may be straight, but he has a gay sense of humour.

    • ZhyKitty

      That is such a lovely compliment!

  • 2karmanot

    When is he running for Governor of CA?

  • Joseph Miceli

    My motto has always been “Climb every mountain and plant the flag.”
    That’s a BIG mountain, but I’m up for it!

  • Marvellous, he would be handy to have around the house; heavy lifting and snuggling up to on a cold winters day. Reminds me of this advert which was playing in Canada when we lived there:

  • David Walker

    Somewhat OT. I like April Fools stuff that isn’t played on me. An entire nation? That’s OK.

  • TKW

    Talk about a tall drink of water!

  • Stefon Was Stuffed

    Hafthór is so sweet. He makes the best cupcakes. And he crochets gorgeous designs. But when the camera comes on, he goes Strasberg Method Acting. Love his “missionary” work too in Paris, Georgia.

  • OMG – I never heard of him but WOW he’s fantastic (I do get the Bluto comments).

  • Unless we are being given two servings of Le poisson d’Avril, this is a genuine ad. For what? Go here: , click the blue ‘play’ arrow on the front page, and you’ll see the uncut version.

    Apart from the clip, the whole website is a lot of fun. Just don’t go away.

  • DrRobY

    Here is the UNCUT version:

    It does put this commercial into perspective.
