Per Eklund demostrates ESP

Per Eklund knows what you’re thinking. He has ESP.

And in this video he’ll show you how it works. This was shot by the good people over at Autowereld whilst they were partaking of the Saab Arctic Adventure.

Hat tip to Sofie from Saab for the video, via Twitter.

Hat tip to Richo for the ESP joke, back in 2007/8. Still no better.

Yes. He´s brilliant. English and swedish is so close so it works very well.
“Där” instead of “there”. So cool.
Often we swedes über-ambitiously try almost to speak better then the british.
I say, loosen up a little will ya, swedes.

(ps sorry bout the misspelling. ds)

Did any of you non Swedes understand a single word he was saying? I just love the guy!

Reminds me of my father a couple of years ago sitting at a dinnertable with some British friends, when all of a sudden my father made a small burping noice. He excused himself by saying “Oh excuse me, I raped!”
“Rapa”=”to burp” wich, obviously, in swenglish translates “rape”.
Did me and my sister collapse laughing and did the Brits stop breathing? Oh yes 🙂

a bit off-topic perhaps, but this reminds me of another joke about language mix-up:

A foreign tourist in a London restaurant::
– “Waiter, when will I become a beefsteak?”
– “Never, I hope” the waiter answered.

(in German “bekommen” = “get”)

I love this video. I love Per Eklund. I feel obligated to note that, at the end of the day, the laws of physics dictate that throwing a few tonnes of steel and aluminum around in an urban setting with no traction is dangerous, ESP is no excuse to drive recklessly in hazardous conditions. (But if you’re out in the middle of nowhere on a huge sheet of ice? Have at it!)

I love his wärmländ-swenglish.

And he CAN drive. Like very few can. 🙂

This reminds me of a question I had that SU people could help with. I have the 9-3 with XWD and ESP but it’s a manual. Instinctively, I take it out of gear when slowing down and braking (usually to stop) yet it occurs to me that I’m losing all the added traction of XWD and I assume LSD and ESP during slippery conditions in this process. Do you just have to train yourself to keep the car in gear whenever possible in slippery conditions? It’s just opposite of my instinct and I’m trying to re-train myself even after 14… Read more »

When Per was in Vienna some years ago I had the pleasure to sit beside him during a short test drive on a closed airport.
9-3 Aero, rain and the car on the limit, unforgettable.

Have driven every engine alternative of the 9-5 series. On thing that need to be changed from a safety and human factors perspective is the ESP on off button in the center of the drive sense switch. When fiddeling with the settings It is easy to disengage the ESP. Should be “harder” to turn off!
