Swedish bikini models in steamy support video

Swedish bikini models in steamy support video

The music video (below) features a team of Swedish glamour models in skimpy blue and yellow swimwear, engrossed in a sweaty regimen of warm-ups and training exercises.

The clip comes courtesy of “Scandal Beauties” – the self-proclaimed biggest net-magazine for men in Scandinavia – featuring the “best collection of glamour models” from the region.

On the magazine's official website, the video, shot recently in Stockholm, is hailed as the “best thing to happen to Sweden since Zlatan’s back-heeled goal against Italy in 2004”.

While the website admits that the Swedish side may not succeed at the Euros this year, one thing is for sure, the country's fans come first in at least one important sense.

"There's one thing we'll definitely win and that's which country has the hottest supporters," the magazine wrote.

"Zlatan, Ronaldo and Rooney are all fine, but to see Catherine Holst, Amandra Brédin, Stina Wengler, Therene Hernetoft and more, battling it out in mini-bikinis hits a bit harder."

The song's lyrics, though brief and rather repetitive, touch on the sentiments of footballers and fans alike:

“I hear the crowd as they ignite, just like stars when they collide… our names will be living in their memories.”

In the video, after a rigorous warm-up session, the "beauties" enjoy some light dribbling, followed by the models enjoying what appears to be a series of solo water fights with their own drink bottles.

And for the hardcore supporters, there is also a good deal of Swedish flag waving and close-ups of the bikini team's uniforms.

For those who really appreciate the music, the song is also available on Spotify.

LOL, yet another reason for the Local to display boobs, not that I'm complaining ;)

Yuck: I hate fake boobs and tattoos on women. I could find 7 hotter Swedish girls on my bus ride to work!

@ Spuds

Yeah, you're right.
19:40 June 15, 2012 by BraBel
Lovely... even the fake tan didn't make them less attractive!
21:06 June 15, 2012 by haladeen
mmm... lovely, delicious I would say..

Fully agree. Natural beauty > Plastic
01:12 June 16, 2012 by Charon
Disgusting and Pathetic.

If the "guys" in this thread honestly believe these girls are pretty, then there must be quite a lot wrong in your heads.

Firstly, NOTHING on these "girls" is real. Boobs ain't, rumpa ain't, face ain't and their hair ain't either. And since this fake image that they are pulling turns you on so much, I hate to break it to you, but as soon as the make-up and the chemically bombed-to-helvete loose hair comes off you are in for a surprise!

When a women is required to have that much fake sh*t smeared into her face and hair, and that much plastic injected into her body to "look hot", then that must mean they have a lot to cover up from their true natural look, does it not?

A natural beauty remains beautiful with or without makeup, and will be as pretty during the evening as she will be waking up next to you in the morning. Contrary to these "Barbies", who seem to have A LOT to compensate for.

And secondly, Sweden lost BOTH their first games and are now out of the EM before it really started. I am guessing that this "Bikini Video" is that country's way of over-compensating for the Swedish teams lack of actual talent? Wouldn't be surprised. That's all that Sweden is about after all. Show off, Talk big, and fall hard when they actually have to prove themselves.

Honestly, how about using your brains instead of whats pulsing inside your pants for a change? Having a bump in your pants does not win any fotboll games as far as I know.

Oh, and on a last notice, Plastic boobs feel horrible compared to naturally big ones! Just saying! ;)

apart from the plastic and the fake tans - not bad
10:38 June 16, 2012 by Marc the Texan
Have to agree with others. Haven't seen so many cheap plastic parts since I visited the Yugo dealership. Not steamy at all. Gratuitous, Yes. The song didn't help. And random shirtless guys swaying really takes away my horny. lol

It seems such distractions do not help the team win!

@Charon

Thanks for the indoctrination, now we know what to like.
13:17 June 16, 2012 by Charon
" mmm... lovely" "delicious" "apart from plastic and fake tan - not bad"

Just a sad example of how effing primitive some guys still are.

Getting turned on by these plastic dolls is just as pathetic as being turned on by manga-girls or computer-game girls. There is nothing real on them, nothing, and sorry, but I doubt they would spread their legs for you anyway unless you are some prominent person or take daily baths in cash. Because along with their fake beauty usually also comes a nice amount of compressed air between their ears.

But that is not even the worst part.

You do know what image this is giving to the children as they grow up, don't you?

All little girls, easy to manipulate as they are seeking a place in this world out there feel that they HAVE to get surgery, fake tans and fake hair in order to be god enough to ever find a partner in their lives. Those that do not agree with this "plastic dream" men have will most likely be bullied to a point where they'll break. Thanks to guys with obviously limited mental capacity, little girls actually in Sweden adore and try to copy the following "women" as an example for how they themselves should look.

http://www.kissies.se/

And I know how many men think, and most of you will say "so? More pretty women for me to look at!" since the bump in your pants is what makes the most important decisions for you, but keep one thing in mind.

- Your own daughters could be the next one -

And then you might say," naja, I will just admire looking at other girls anyway, whats the problem?", and forget about the fact that these other girls are the daughters of someone as well.

People like these are destroying generations of kids and teens, including possibly your own. I do not want to know how many girls got anorexic thanks to the example the "Kissies" in this world are representing.

But as usual, my comment will be ignored anyway, cause who wants to get rain on their parade? Let's just ignore the fact that this is morally disgusting and disturbing and just have a nice "imaginary date" with these plastic barbie dolls instead. There are plenty of them to buy at Toys'R'us, with your beloved plastic tits, fake hair, fake tan and lots of makeup. And that is most likely as close as 99% of all those throbbing "men" will get to these women anyway.

Its really funny how you get to witness the irony and scissor effect on those things. Ohh Sverige, how advanced you are when it comes to not-objectify women. We ditched out Miss Sweden and replaced it with plastic barbies that are a billion times worse than anything Miss Sweden ever stood for.

But what do I know, I just lived there for 19+ years.

Someone tell me what's up with these women wearing tube sock. It's not a sexy look at all.
16:39 June 16, 2012 by Charon
As a woman, I do know what I am talking about. I witness how this shallowness destroyed relationships and lives over and over again. How some girls start off trying to get good grades with dreams of becoming a lawyer, and as group pressure hits, instead skip school and focus on the latest trends from Gucci or what bra will make their racks look bigger.

My sister, 2nd in Lucia of Sweden once, is a great example of how plastic and Photoshopped "dolls" does more damage then good. She, unfortunately, fell in love with a man who uses his weewee to think for him. When she was still a young pretty blond she was "bangable", now as she reached over 30 he lets her know she ain't worth his attention, since her rack is too small.

She then, hating herself and feeling like the ugliest woman on earth, gets herself into plastic surgery to get a bigger rack like those playboy girls her "man" adores. However, after surgery, nothing changed relationship wise and he still finds her too ugly to bang and instead dream of barbies. Unless she goes under the knife again, she will not be good enough for him. Charming, isn't it?

As it also turns out, the silicon she got was the toxic kind. So, in other words, my sister walks around with a ticking cancer bomb in her chest, and of course won't remove it cause she have too much to compete with to even care about her health, as long as she is on her way on turning as "pretty" as these plastic things in the video.

Or the fact that as I went to school, my female classmates started wearing thongs at the age of 11, with low-cut jeans making sure everyone would see it. Not to mention slut makeup at age of 9. But that is of course also fine. The line between average jerk-off material and border to child pornography seem to be very minimal these days.

So #12 me saying that pushing this fake image on girls is morally wrong means indoctrination in your eyes? For a person who have been indoctrinated since birth to believe this is what a female must look like in order to be accepted, that is a dull statement from you.

The world as we know it without the plastic hype would start accepting people being themselves, find their God given bodies gorgeous, and focus on personality and intelligences instead of the size of their silicon.. yeah that would just be awful, wouldn't it? A none shallow world?

The Photoshop and plastic image people have to live up to is NOT OK, and I do have every right to speak my opinion about this when I see little girls under the age of 10 bitching about how they would be "too fat" or not "sexy enough" in bikinis!!

So guys, I am terribly sorry for all of you with Jenna Jameson complex, cause you will never experience the love and care of a women of natural beauty who will spend more time on taking care of her man then of her makeup.
19:00 June 16, 2012 by towns
Hmmm, I totally should have actually watched the video before I commented. Gonna agree with Charon and others on this one!
19:04 June 16, 2012 by Trenatos
I'm way too amused over the feminist replies here, complaining about how men are reacting to the video.

Get over yourselves! Are you really that jealous?

Go Sweden!

# 18 "jealous"?

Oh C'mon, are we in kindergarten here or what? I just waited for that line. "Feminist". As soon as you disagree with the shallowness of the society as a women, you are immediately a "ugly feminist".

I need to correct you on many points there, Trenatos. I do not think highly of myself, but given the fact that I can not even go and post a letter 5 minutes away from home, dressed in clothes that doesn't reveal any body part aside of my face, and still get asked out by the first man I met, I would say I do not really have anything to be jealous about.

And that is even though nothing on me is fake, how funny! I do not agree with feminism one bit and I never did. My ex-friends turned into feminists, and that is also one of the reasons why they are not part of my life anymore. That however does not mean I have to agree with everything that is going on in this world, and the "all women must be plastic in order to fit in" image that is squeezed into all the young girls out there at an very early age.

I am a married women with a wonderful husband, and trust me with a man like mine I will never have any reason to turn feminist! It is purely childish of you to assume that a women can not speak her mind about how horribly shallow this world is turning and what affect that has on our children without being marked as a "jealous feminist". Jealous of what anyway?

Their plastic? Trust me, If I wanted that I could get it just as easily as they did. Want an extreme example on how this type of sh*t destroys our future generations?

In the US you already have 4 year old with boob and butt pushups, 3 year olds dressed as a prostitutes for a beauty pageant pushed by their obsessed parents. Just look up Toddlers and Tiaras on the Tube.

And do not believe that just because this trend happens in America, it will not happen here in Europe. All of this shallowness is asking for just that, fake beauty dolls from an as early age as possible. If you look at graduation photos in newspapers in Sweden, you will see girls in the ages of 7-8 wearing hot pants and ultrashort skirts and heels. And you try to tell me I would somehow be overreacting out of jealousy? How naive does one have to be to not see where this is heading?

And lastly, you do not think that just because you are a man you will get through with this just fine do you? If this keeps getting pushed and more and more women fall for this shallowness, you yourself will end up having to get yourself under the knife in order to be good enough for them. Because trust me, these shallow girls will not settle for anything but Brad Pitt lookalikes.

So I do not really see what exactly you have to cheer for there, when you spend your life IMAGINING banging these plastic barbies, and in reality only will remain having a date with your own hand.

These girls don't give a d**n about football. They only care about exposure so they can get a part in a porn movie. They are pathetic. Who are the fat guys with them? Why are they in the video? Ugly fat guys...

@3 Spuds,

Don't even try buddy, they are all feminist. Swedish women are not stupid.
10:58 June 18, 2012 by Rebel
If all the women in the bikini ad were outed lesbians the feminists of Sweden would hail them as enlightened and excellent role models.
16:13 June 18, 2012 by riose
@Charon

Stop telling others what to like. The girls in the video are aduts, so are we.

If they want to get silicon boobs, it is their choice, not yours. And if some people like it, it is their taste, not yours.
