Swedish wireless carrier Telenor has found an unusual way to push its new mobile TV service, using a site filled with rock star hijinks within a hotel room to tout its 3-month trial and variety of programming.

A video intro features a mod type in 1967 dancing in his hotel room and subsequently tossing a TV out the window. The video soon segues into 2007, where a punky, denim clad lad opts to toss out a cell phone with mobile TV instead. Soon, the scene shifts to the hip hotel digs, where the rest of the band, as well as band manager and a frustrated hotel staffer waiting for her tip, are lounging to the sounds of catchy electro-pop.

Visitors can click on the "Get Started" button to view the scene unfold. Each individual starting with the staffer are equipped with their own Telenor mobile TV, where one can see different features and functionalities of the service. The table in front of the band manager, also highlights 3G phones from Samsung and Nokia that carry Telenor TV, which includes programming from HBO, Discovery, MTV and more.

And while it's not the kind of hotel room vandalism that would make Keith Moon proud, visitors can click on several not-so-hidden Easter eggs to catch various misdeeds including bending of lamps, destruction of artwork, breaking of chairs and even the plastering of room service dishes into the wall. Move the cursor around until it turns to devil horns to see the PG vandalism.
