Always reminds me of the ´´KFC Chicken Got Soul Ads``…..Well, I just wanted to have a ``cup of tea`` with a mate but once I arrived at the pub he said…
``Trickster just called, they are looking for some Northern Soul Dancers for the new KFC ads, come on let's go``..We arrived at the audition and peeked through the big windows….Lot's of beautiful people, all stretching and all of them looked like straight out of ''Fame''(leggins and the lot) !!!! We thought sodd this, it's the wrong place let's have a drink. On the way to the pub Trickster came along an and dragged us back to the audition. We went in and my phone was ringing….French Fred looked at me''You frigging bastard, it's that your German agent again??? Jesus, how many jobs do get man??? Germany must love you!!! I was talking to my dad in German and dropped a few English words like... contract, excellent & ja ja …sehr gut klasse….People looked at me………….''What the f*ck has he got, that I haven't?????''
Anyway off we went, doing what we do mostly every weekend and eventually got picked by the director. A couple of weeks later we found ourselves dancing for hours….spinning, backdroping to.................``Compared to What``
The camera operator was getting all the action with his hand-held camera ''Great, great,excellent…but came to close to one of us 4 ``Northern Soul Dancers`` and suddenly there was blood all over the dance floor …..the lad was saying ..``It's allright no problem I just need an ice cube!!!!``
Well, they stopped filming and the guy needed quite a few stitches. Mind you, only after a few beers in the pub!!!!
In the end they didn't use much of our ``Northern`` dancing and ''Compared to what'' was dropped for ''Do I love You Indeed I do''
But it was a great laugh, good pay and I still love the track!!!!!!
