As we know, Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead sadly passed away in the final days of 2015, at the venerable age of 70.

The Grand Warted One was known for poking fun at himself and his image, including a little cameo he had in a memorable KitKat advertisement that saw him serenading a group of old ladies with a violin.

This, however, was Lemmy's final gift to the Internet - a slightly odd, yet unmistakably touching advertisement for milk in Finland.


Tribute video for Lemmy Kilmister by Valio

Lemmy Kilmister kuvasi kanssamme viime itsenäisyyspäivänä ikonisen maitomainoksen uudestaan. Lopputuloksena on kunnianosoitus suurelle miehelle. Kiitos, Lemmy.

The advertisement, just for context, is aping an older one that the company did several years ago that became a cultural sensation in Finland. It involved a similarly shagging looking man pronouncing that he doesn't drink milk in the same kind of deadpan fashion that 'oul Lemmy does.

Valio Milk had filmed the advertisement in July of 2015, however were planning to launch the advertisement at some point in 2016. Sadly, with Lemmy's death, it was edited as a final tribute to him.

The world is lesser without him.
