KRISTIANSAND/OSLO (TV 2 Nettavisen): The case against the couple, who shocked the world by having sex on stage during a concert at the Quart music festival, started Tuesday.
Tommy Hol Ellingsen 28, and Leona Johansson, 21, who are charged for the sex stunt during the Cumshots concert July 6 of this year, met in court today dressed as children. They both pleaded not guilty to the charges, and their particular dress is most likely an attempt to express how dumb they think the case is.
The couple said that they would rather be jailed than paying the fine.
«Im not ashamed,» Johansson said when she and Ellingsen met in court Tuesday.
Refused to accept fine
The two of them were fined NOK 10,000 (USD 1,570) each for the incident this summer, but they refused to pay, and the case ended up in court.
The lead singer of Cumshots, Kristopher Schau, and television personality Espen Thoresen Hversaagod are meeting in court as witnesses.
Schau and the other Cumshots members were also fined NOK 10,000 (USD 1,570) each, but only Schau has paid it. The three other members refused to accept the fines, and they have to meet in court as well.
«Cumshots cant live on beer and hard alcohol alone,» said Ole Petter Andreassen,alias el Doom, after the incident. «We need air to live, thats why we support the rain forest.»
Message with an attitude
«Todays environmentalists are more politicians than idealists,» complained Ellingsen to TV 2 Nettavisen after the incident. «We want to get the message out with an attitude.»
The stunt this summer increased the popularity of the organization immensely.
«We have been contacted by several porn producers in both Denmark and Sweden regarding making «Fuck for Forest – the Movie»» Ellingsen later revealed.
«We urge people to fight for the things they believe in,» Ellingsen said just before the court case started. «People may be afraid, but so many low and worthless things happen.»
Espen Thoresen, press officer at the Quart music festival, stated that they had not been informed.
«We did not know of this before hand,» Thoresen said to TV 2 Nettavisen after the stunt. «If we had been informed, we would not have improved it.»
The festival was fined NOK 50,000 (USD 7,580) for the stunt, which they refused to pay, and the case against the festival is scheduled for a later date.
