Looks like Fatstone.TV, Norway’s first Extreme Sports TV Channel, was in need of hilarious ways to work out so they featured our very own Matias and Jorgen and their Beirut Rooftop Workout Workshop videos on their website!
Fatstone.TV conducted a hilarious interview with the guys about everything from staying sexy in Beirut to what they’re up in Norway now. The full interview is below the video:
F: Your workout tips are fantastic and locations are just as awesome! Why did you choose to make rooftops part of your workout videos?
M & J: We were on a mission to become famous in the Middle East, so we had to work out all the time to stay fit! And in order to give something back to our dedicated fans, we decided to give away some of our workout secrets. Why on a rooftop? Because it makes you feel good when you work out with a view, which gives bigger muscles. Everybody knows that.
F: Was there a lot of pressure to be fit and sexy in Beirut?
M & J: The Lebanese people like to look good, and a lot of people take to cosmetic surgery in order to look better on Instagram, so, yes, I guess you can say that we were under a lot of pressure. That’s also why we wanted to show our fans that there are alternatives to expensive cosmetic surgery. Real beauty can be achieved through hard work, at a price that even poor people can afford. All you have to do is to just “Keep F***ing Doing It”
F: According to a recent study done by Bill Gates, HALF of Norwegians are clinically overweight! Does this inspire you to help your nation out? And how do you stay in shape in Norway?
M & J: No no no no… That must be a misunderstanding. A glitch in the numbers somewhere. We all know that B.G. has a thing for big numbers. Aren’t all Norwegians going to the gym all the time, when they are not hiking? But if this bogus report turns out to be true, I would suggest that the Norwegians tune in on our workout videos right away, and if they like them, and if they will ask for more, we might consider revealing some of the secrets to how we manage to stay this ripped even during the Norwegian winters.
F: Word on the street is your fans are dying to see some more workout videos? Anything in works for the future?
M & J: We have heard about people who are tired of only doing situps and pushups, but it’s important that people know these exercises really well before they can move onto more complicated stuffs. (Jorgen has a knee injury because he started running before he had jogging really worked in).
As for the future, we have a lot of awesome and exciting stuff coming up, but we can’t really talk about it yet as our fierce opponents tend to steal our brilliant ideas. The last thing we want to see is Ylvis basking in fame and glory that was supposed to go to us.
There is a lot of stuff planned for the future, but we can’t really talk about it yet.
F: Lastly, and pardon the intrusion but, are you guys single?
M & J: We both got girlfriends shortly after we released our workout videos, so I guess we proved that our working out, worked out.
Fans in Beirut, are you looking forward to more? What do you think about the guys’ giving workout workshops in Norway? Tell us in the comments!
– Full-length interview with the producer of this summer’s biggest hits.
– BONUS VIDEO! Crowd Cam from Example’s performance at Hove!!!
Today marks the UK release of Live Life Living, the fifth album of Brit musician Example. Sure we had never heard of him before despite his whopping 2 million followers on Twitter and 25 million listens on Spotify, but Example already knows that.
“In Norway people know my songs more than my name, when I tell them I’m Example they’re like ‘... [more]
– Catch the show tonight so he doesn’t have to
“We’ll be stage diving and shit, so hopefully I won’t break my knee or neck, I don’t want to die. Ok, If I could choose to die I’d rather die on stage then somewhere else…” Rapper Arif told 2famous.TV, as we discussed being a local superstar, what festivals like HOVE mean to Norwegian artists and what we should expect from his show tonight.
– The kids went mental!
Some of the artists at the Hove festival OWNED the audience, and Bastille was definitely one of the highlights. With complete crowd control they moved thousands of Norwegian teenagers to synchronized madness. It was one of those experiences that will live for ever on hundreds of Instagram accounts. (Most of the kids here says that they don’t remember the festival from day to day). [more]
HOVE goes hardcore when L.A. rapper hits the stage
Earl Sweatshirt, who hails from my hometown adjacent city of Los Angeles (well, as you’ll see in the video, even if L.A. is the easiest point of reference on the international scene, if you grew up in the ‘burbs, never tell people who are actually from L.A. that you’re from there, because they will call your Orange County ass out so fast), shook the AMFI stage with some hard-...

As the 2famous crew sat on the beach, contemplating life and looking out onto the horizon, distant tribal beats were calling our names. We had to get to where ever that music was coming from. The 20-minute journey from the beach to the stage was playing was dramatic…we were walking fast in fear that The Busy Twist... [more]
We’ve made it our mission to see what party people around the world are up to at music festivals — from Lebanon to Nepal, but it has taken 2famous.TV until now to see how Norwegian youth party their summers away.
On days 1 and 2 of the 5-day fest we’ve run into extremely horny boys, pretty awkward dancers, and fans feverishly awaiting big headliners like MIA! Check ou... [more]
