When we got this, we thought, forget the colour changing Shakira mug and the ‘Dress The Veronicas’ paper dolls… this surely has to steal the crown of promotional item of the year!
To celebrate Will Young’s album ‘The Hits’ (which, is out now and at number 9 in the UK album chart), this make your own Will Young Christmas decoration is being sent out to promote the album. Check out the picture of the item BEFORE assembly…
Promotional Item Of The Year…? Here is the story of HOW VERY WRONG! Once you’ve popped Will 1 and Will 2 out of the card, the sparkly glittery stuff almost immediately fell off and as we attempted to slot Will 1 and Will 2 together the rest of the sparkly stuff practically jumped off the decoration altogether!
We also had to snip (with scissors) dangerously and uncomfortably close to Will’s downstairs area to make the two pieces fit properly! You DO get a nice piece of string to hang it on the tree though!
So, we might call this ‘Promotional Item Of The Year In Theory’. Interestingly, it is also available from the merchandise stall on Will’s current UK tour costing £5!!!
Nevermind, at least the album ‘The Hits’ is doing well and is a rather fantastically ace celebration of Will’s body of work over the past 8 years! It features such stunningly beautiful tracks from ‘Leave Right Now’ to ‘All Time Love’. When listening, you also recall the AMAZING videos that Will has created from the swimming theme in ‘Friday’s Child’ to the Blue Peter inspired video for ‘Who Am I’ to the pregnant ‘Hopes & Fears’ video… VERY VERY good work indeed! Long may he continue to be the best male solo the UK has to offer!
