A thank you movie!

Radiotjänst, the Swedish equivalent of the UK's TV Licensing Authority, has come up with a new viral video campaign to get people to pay their broadcasting fee. I can't imagine anyone will be persuaded but it's great that you can be the hero in your own video.

Here's my video.

Watch the video above then make your own version. Hat-tip to Richard Baker.

Here in the UK, a Conservative government, should they win the general election, is likely to scrap the TV Licensing Authority and fund the BBC through general taxation. This change would save around £150m in collecting costs per year.

I've no idea how much Radiotjänst paid for the viral campaign. If you know, please share!
