Everybody loves our super-cool cover design for our track, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony, but we can’t take any credit for that. All the credit goes to the amazing Simon Crack of DEAD COOL APPS, who very graciously let us use his artwork. We approached him two years ago when we found another of his drunken Santa graphics online (which you can probably see in older posts from that time) and wanted to do the right thing and ask permission. Unfortunately, when we started to get our track ready for distribution, we discovered the resolution of that image wasn’t high enough, so being the superstar that he is, he dug deep into his files and found the image we’ve now used as our official single cover, as shown below!
Many, many thanks!
Dead Cool Apps design and create amazing iPhone apps and other cool stuff, so if you’re looking for a great team to help you in that area, why not give them a call or check their website!
Good news kids! Santa Claus really does exist, and he’s starring in our music video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyNStp1QMwc (WARNING: If you are underage, please close your ears to the one rude word that’s used!
Spoiler alert: When our Santa isn’t being Santa, he’s really David Albury from Edinburgh (as pictured) Click on his photograph to see more details of his acting experience and contact information.
We were very fortunate that he approached us very early on in our search for a Santa for our music video and went above and beyond what we asked for! In fact he sent in so much footage some of the really great stuff got lost in my email box and wasn’t found until after I’d edited the video together, but we’ll try and use it in another video closer to Christmas time.
As you can imagine, trying to comply with all the ever-changing Covid-19 rules and regulations, making a music video is practically impossible, but would have been dead in the water had we not found our Santa.
Here’s a little bit more information about David, and I’m sure you’ll all agree he makes a damn fine Father Christmas!
Out of the Christmas Season, when David isn’t bringing festive cheer as Santa Claus, he is better known as ‘Dave the Quizmaster’, running pub quizzes in several pubs in Edinburgh. So, I think you’d agree considering our song is a good old-fashioned knees-up and helping the pub industry, he was the perfect choice for us!
He has numerous film credits, which you can see on his imdb profile: HERE and if you’d like to see him in action, you can check out his videos on YouTube: HERE
We’d also like to give special credit to his ‘little helpers’, namely Pilrig Productions, including Linda Buchan, Irene Inglis, and Claire Watson. A super-huge thank you to all of you from us for being an integral part of our journey, and supporting us in our campaign to raise much-needed support for our pubs in this time of crisis.
