Felix Ermer & Viktor Dik
The 2 Minute Interview
Felix and Viktor are two thirds of the BROOKLYN SOAP CO. Together with Jonas, third man on board, they founded the currently freshest label around for natural men care after their extended stay in Brooklyn – hence the name. Once back in good old Germany, there were absolutely no cool and eco-friendly cosmetic products “for him”, so the boys just decided to roll up their sleeves and get their own hands dirty clean. Felix and Viktor are darn cool dudes – each of them modest, clever and really good company, but together they´re simply unbeatable. We’re already looking forward to seeing them again at our press event tomorrow at the Vater & Sohn store. We don´t really know what all of this has to do with Spiderman, the Rudi-Völler-Memorial-Hairdo or jam on toast. All we know is, that we are all very glad the idea for a self-rotating spaghetti-fork didn’t work out so well. That just would have been so much more impractical for hair care.
Name: Felix Ermer / Viktor Dik
What do you do first thing in the morning?
Ever been to Brooklyn?
The most important piece of advice you’ve ever got?
What do you prefer: clean-shaven or full-bearded?
Who do you think is the most handsome man in the world?
What brilliant idea would you like to have had?
What´s the one thing you can do better then anyone else?
What are you afraid of?
Close your eyes and think of something nice. What comes to mind?
Why can only women save the planet from doom?
If we came to visit you, what would you cook for us?
When did you last try something new and what was it?
What should no one know about you?
Which question should we have asked?
The last words:
Apparently wolves have re-established themselves in Germany. Ever seen one? I grew up near the Eifel; there was a wolf park there. Great Animals. And I have little wolf at home, too.
What do you think is the greatest problem of your generation? Lack of humility.
Your favourite curse word? Scheiße.
Describe yourself in one sentence, please. A wolf on the outside, a bear on the inside.
Have got any hidden talents? When I’m drunk I’m really good at writing poetry – but only when texting my best friend.
What do you spend too much money on? Records. I’m trying to find a good balance between 70s disco divas, 90s techno and current releases.
Which forbidden thing would you do if there were no consequences? Bans never prevented me from doing things in the past. But I would eat a piece of cream cake because I actually have a milk allergy.
Which book should everyone read? My Tender Matador by Pedro Lemebel. It’s a novel about an attack on Augusto Pinochet in the late 1980s. The characters are incredible: the dictator’s crazy wife, the radical left wing macho, an old pansy… a great book.
Tell us a joke! Ah, I can’t on command!
