(adds more info on Vikings series official launch in Romania)
To mark the start of Vikings series on History, scheduled for October 21st, Cosmin Tudoran spent a day as a viking. As he looks alike with the main character of the series, Ragnar Lothbrok, and as he is a fan of the series, Tudoran already has a viking haircut.
For one day, Cosmin put on the viking clothes and started the day with a rich breakfast, based mainly on fish. Than, he took the axe, shield and sword and attended the meetings he had programmed for the day, attracting attention both from colleagues and friends and from random people. The day ended with Cosmin enjoying an ale.
Everything started when, mid-september, Cosmin Tudoran challenged his Facebook friends to like an image with Ragnar if they want him to get the same haircut. The big number of likes convinced him to adopt the new viking haircut. Here’s how it happened with the haircut:
More than that, he promised bacj than to his friends that he will spend a day as a viking, wearing the specific clothes and weapons for the entire day, for all the activities he had programmed that day.
