In fact, according to the IMDb
, Swede Johanson
; a memorable character in Clint Eastwood
's Heartbreak Ridge
The Swede is one of the privates that Clint has to train, but he is not there for the first few days. The other soldiers wait for the Swede, to crush Clint Eastwood, who is giving them a through bad time.
When the Swede returns to the base, Clint's character and the Swede lock horns to the other soldiers' chant of:
Swede!, Swede!, Swede!, Swede!, Swede!, Swede!
Despite the Swede being a walking giant, Clint Eastwood beats him, and later on (in the traditional Hollywood tradition) they become good buddies.
We also had a Swede in our Computer Structure class. We called the teacher Iron Sarge (which was the local name of Heartbreak Ridge) and this big guy just had to be the Swede.
