This was for two main reasons:
1) To watch DVDs
2) So Luke could watch his beloved DVDs (mostly Shrek, we are now on the 127th viewing), and WE could both watch Lazy Town!
If you don't have kids or spend time with them, then chances are you may not have heard of Sportacus and Lazy Town. Either way, you need to know he exists as he is the most amazing modern super-hero you'll ever meet and HE'S ON TV!
Sportacus jumps, leaps, runs, spins, does push ups and the splits in mid-air and generally moves faster and in the most amazingly strong and lean body I think I have ever seen! And what's more he seems to only eat fruit as far as I can see.
Created, written, directed and produced by Sportacus himself (real name Magnus Scheving, pictured, hailing from Iceland) the whole Lazy Town concept - from creation to delivery - is really something special.
And Magnus himself has got to be one of the most accomplished humans on the planet...
Not only has been a world-class athlete in his time, but he's also been an author, producer, gym owner, entrepreneur and so much more.
If you want to take a further look at all of this (as I really recommend you do, if only to see Sportacus in action - wow!) then go here. The philosophy itself is something to fall in love with, and as for Sportacus himself, wellllll.....!
