Straight Out Of Leeds: Fan Friday Fan Martin Delin!

Each week we pay tribute to our fans by profiling one of them at random on our site - and we're fortunate to have fans all over the globe!  This week's lucky Team Coco fan comes to us all the way "across the pond" from Leeds!  Without further ado, meet one of your own: MARTIN DELIN!

1. Please state your name, age and hometown for the record. (also, your twitter handle, if you have one)
Martin Delin, 26, born &​ raised in Malmö (Sweden), currently living in Leeds (UK). I’m always interested in interesting people, feel free to follow me on Twitter: @martindelin and might follow you right back.

2. Relationship status?

3. Favorite snack?
It’s a tie between the salty licorice ‘Salta Katten’ (The Salty Cat) and chocolate covered raisins.

4. What was the last good movie you saw or the last good song you heard?
Crazy Heart – Jeff Bridges is superb (nice beard too!) and I really enjoy Fleet Foxes’ Helplessness Blues at the moment.

5. How long have you been Team Coco? What’s your earliest Conan memory?
Oooh tough one. I was relatively late to discover Conan - they were only starting showing Conan in Sweden in the year 2000s (see what I did there?). I think that sketch, together with the captivating String Dance, is probably my first memories of his shenanigans. I remember thinking at the time: “Who the h*** is this? What a weirdo. I love him!”

6. How do you spend a typical day?
I get up, eat my cereals. With milk and strawberry jam. Shower. Get to work at an ad agency as a digital designer (which is pretty good*). That involves anything that needs looking beautiful on a screen really; from websites to game design to apps to emails, banners, blah, blah, blah. All the really ‘now’ stuff, I suppose. Then I get home. Kiss my wife. Eat some tasty food. Watch a film or some TV/ listen to BBC Radio 6/ design stuff. Brush my teeth. Go to bed.

7. Tell us something about you that no one else knows.
I love to design. But I would really want to work as a forester, keeping an eye on a patch of wilderness for somebody. Drive around in my 4 wheel drive. Walk the woods. Grow a beard – not too look good, but to keep warm. Keep track of the game. Do a bit of hunting. Chop down some trees. Plant some trees. Drink coffee out of a flask. That sort of thing.

8. Name five things - besides Conan - that make you laugh!
In no particular order:
- 30 Rock
- Hot Shots 1 &​ 2
- Arrested Development
- *Curb Your Enthusiasm
- My wife
- My mates

9. What’s the one thing you would never ever do; not for a million dollars or all the chocolate in the world?
Eat a living tarantula.

10. What would you like to see more of from Team Coco?
As I work with ‘the internet’ and marketing every day, I get to see a lot of good and bad examples of brands interacting with its audience. Team Coco would go down as a great example in my book; the dynamic and new thinking way you guys work is quite commendable. All you can do is to keep it up and not stagnate. I suppose you’re lucky that you’ve got a tech savvy and interested ‘client’. Hmm. Come to think of it. Let me know if you need any design work at all ;-)

(Oh, and what’s deal with hating Sweden and the Finland favoritism? We brought you Roxette, H&​M, Smorgasbord, SAAB – the list goes on! :-)


You bring up a good point, Martin - you HAVE brought us a lot of great stuff! Conan's just hurt because your leader looks nothing like him. It's a sad, sad case of vanity. Personally, we here at love EVERYONE... Except people from the state of Michigan. Michigan people are the worst. (I'm from Michigan, by the way). Thanks for being our lucky Fan Friday Fan today!

As for the rest of y'all - if you'd like to be considered for a future Fan Friday, throw your hat into the ring by commenting on this post. I'll pick someone at random, send them a Facebook message, and we'll be off and running for next week!  Good luck everyone... And have a great weekend!
