In our last spoof music video, the UK franchise team proved itself to be a ‘Happy’ bunch, with their take of Pharrell Williams’ worldwide hit. Now we have gone back to childhood, revealing what dreams and ambitions we cherished as youngsters. The inspiration this time was Rizzle Kicks ‘When I Was A Youngster’, a hip hop chart song showcased in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
From Danny’s dreams of being a fireman and Hayley’s desire to be a ballerina, through to franchisee Simon’s ambition of being the Pope and Luke’s wish to be a Star Wars character (Luke, I am your father), their childhood fantasies are all played out on screen. Steve gets to skywalk in an astronaut suit, franchisee Helen becomes a showjumper (of sorts), husband Dave is a rather careless Robin Hood, Dug appears as Indiana Jones and Dawn dons combat fatigues for a spell in the army. All this and still more dreams of what we wanted to be as youngsters.
The ‘Back To The Future’ DeLorean even made a time travelling appearance in our UK warehouse, with the dashboard date set for our franchise conference. Spooky!
