NRK.no revealed today that this story was in fact a marketing campaign, 
hatched by the government-owned Innovation Norway.

The story has been covered in more than 1650 articles in 1479 different 
media, potentially reaching 1.2 billion people. The value of the 
coverage is estimated to 11.4 million USD - a pretty good return on 
investment for Innovation Norway, which spent less than 60,000 USD on 
the campaign.
