Rönnblom goes to Hollywood

Reminds me of a bizarre punk song from 1980, "Det är inte snön som faller", featuring Anders F Rönnblom. The video clip to this anti-Christmas song was shown on Swedish TV several Christmases in a row, presumably as a weird joke, or as a concession to people who really hate the happy holiday. Rönnblom's song does picture Santa as a devilish figure, while condemning capitalism and fascists pretending to be democrats...?! Ouch. It also features a poor, dancing pig, something me and my brother heartily laughed at the time. As a counterblast, Swedish TV would also show the romantic Christmas video clip of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "The Power of Love". I considered that to be even more absurd, having in mind the rather un-Christian lifestyle of FGTH...
