He wears a moustache, hair style of the 80's and nasty sunglasses. In the video to Ding Dong Song he's tempting after the choir girls (The Sunshine Girls, a duet of sexy singers, among them Johanna Elkesdotter aka Johanna Stedt) and is singing with an excessively dark and erotical voice things like "Oh, you touch my Tralala". Produced by Anderz Wrethov, Ding Dong Song was an unbacked big hit and took the first place on Swedish singles chart. It also had some success abroad, reached #12 in Ireland and #7 in Norway.
