"Playboy" was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1966, performed in Finnish by Ann Christine.

"Playboy" marks the debut for veteran Eurovision conductor Ossi Runne; he conducted 21 of Finland's 22 entries in the Contest between the years 1966 and 1989, the only exception being 1981's "Reggae OK" with Riki Sorsa.

The song was performed seventh on the night, following Norway's Åse Kleveland with "Intet er nytt under solen" and preceding Portugal's Madalena Iglésias with "Ele e ela". At the close of voting, it had received 7 points, placing 10th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Finnish representative at the 1967 contest by Fredi with "Varjoon - suojaan".
