Best Song I've Heard All Week

If anyone knows what language this is, let me know... the singer could be reading names out of a phone book and I'd still love it.

I think it's Swedish, but the song sorta reminds me of some jams by Finland's Rolli the Troll (search for it on Wikipedia for more info).

I can't find a match, but here are some cool vids from Rolli anyway:

Hi! I just saw this video yesterday! It's from a Swedish cartoon called Bamse. It's about a bear that gets super powers from honey.

haha, this was very popular when I was twelve years old or so. It's a guy who've just made fun of a childrens character called Bamse. The song is sort of just random words :)
