Commercial Break: That T-Mobile singalong in full
If you haven’t seen the new T-Mobile advert yet, it’s a follow-up to the dance-athon that took place in London’s Liverpool Street station. This time though, it’s a singalong, with 13,500 people howling their way through Hey Jude in Trafalgar Square and this is the full-length version.
Call us a bunch of Walter Softies or worse if you like, but the sight of thousands of people gathered together and singing their hearts out for no discernible reason other than ‘because for’ fills our hearts with glee. Though it might be because we all follow woefully underachieving football teams, and we never get a chance to sing when we’re winning.
Here’s what we want - scrap the lottery as it stands and only sell tickets for the draw at alfresco karaoke sessions like this one. Turn up, belt out a classic song and then you can have your ticket. Even if none of your numbers come up, you’ve still had some fresh air and some lung exercise. And we’ll all be richer because of it.
