Emil Eklöv is a musician, wanderer, storyteller, and adventurer based in Sweden. In this little mini-biopic, part of a series by Millican bags, he charms the pants off the viewer with a childlike appreciation of nature and a general inquisitiveness into the simple joys of life. The video is chock full of footage of the gorgeous, non-snowy Swedish wilderness, equally charming. Eklöv also “surfs” around on an incredible bicycle that I very much would like to have, and as a bonus, gives some solid recommendations for super-natural toilet paper, if you’re into that sort of thing, which I suspect you are.
