Tico is back. And this time, for the new Olsson video, Filip Nilsson brings Tico back home to Sweden.

Having discovered him while shooting a commercial in Spain, Nilsson cast Hector 'Tico Donatte, with the unbelievably ripped shirtless bod, and unbelievable dance moves, in his video for Olsson's One In A Million. But why stop there?

"Tico is based in Madrid, works as a model and actor, and had been in everything from Shakira/Pitbull videos to underwear Calvin Klein commercials in Mumbai - but all he wants to do is to dance," explains Nilsson. "We wanted to bring him to Sweden, to the artist Olssons roots in Lerum (small town outside of Gothenburg), to the house where Olsson was brought up, to combine our two worlds. Tico, his lifestyle and character is as far from Lerum as you can get..."

And safe to say it's the kind of place where you usually keep your shirt on.
