Comedian Matt Whistler launches Christmas video
2:10pm Friday 20th December 2013 in News
AN East Lancashire comedian has launched the video to go with his latest ‘underdog’ Christmas single.
Former Brierfield man Matt Whistler released ‘Robots in His Mash’, his third festive chart bid, earlier this month, and he has now finished the video to go with the song.
Matt, who now lives in Brighton, is fascinated with artistically-designed robots and showcased his own street art at New York’s trendy Yotel in May.
The former Mansfield High student said: “I would love to say there was a deep reason behind the link with mashed potato, but it’s just exploring the world of randomness. It’s the underdog of Christmas.”
To find the video search ‘Robots in His Mash’ on YouTube.
In 2010 Matt led a campaign to get The Trashmen’s Surfin’ Bird to Christmas number one.
The song made it to three in the charts, but the campaign was picked up by Radio One DJ Scott Mills and the video Matt made for the song was viewed by more than 400,000 people.
