A tip of the hat to disability blog The Gimp Parade for turning us onto Norway's own Boys on Wheels, a parody boy band fronted by Jesper Odelberg a wheelchair-bound guy with cerebral palsy who also co-stars in a Norwegian comedy show. This clip is a medley of 80s rock song parodies that gleefully skips from Euro pop to A-ha's "Take On Me" to Bryan Adams' "Heaven" to Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer."

And if that's not enough Boys on Wheels for you, check out these clips affirming that though Jesper's legs may not work so well, his Balls Are OK and he can Make Love In The Handicapped Toilet.
