The Bobby Tender Story is a fictional documentary about Finnish rural boy Robert Aaron Tenderloin, who back in the 1980's, as the first Finn ever, rises to international singing fame.

The Bobby Tender Story works is a showpiece for the musical talent of Martin Ilmoni, and at the same time a humorous, satirical look at the news-hungry TV documentary format, where any old bit of information is used to make up a juicy story.

Shot and edited between 1999 and 2005 entirely in the digital domain, it also incorporates old film and video material from Martin Ilmoni's own career and youth. Although a limited budget independent production, locations impressively include -- amongst others -- London, The French Riviera, Memphis, Dallas, New York and Los Angeles.

The original 3-part YouTube upload had 392.875.279 views. And if you believe that - you'll believe anything!


The Bobby Tender Story on fiktiivinen dokumentti jossa Martin Ilmoni oikeutetusti nousee esiin hitti- ja melodialahjakkuutena. Projekti lähti liikkeelle Martin Ilmonin vanhoista 80- ja 90-luvun demolauluista (filmissä kuulet mm. englanninkielisen version hitistä "Ei kai taas" Kultalanakaa-albumilta) sekä kaikista vanhoista filmi- ja videopätkistä mitä Martinista löysimme. Lisäksi kuvasimme uutta materiaalia matkoillamme maailmalla vuosina 1999-2005. Sivuroolissa filmissä esiintyy myös Rick Loverina (Eternal Erection) tunnettu Sam Huber.
