VENTING BY VIDEO
With most major news stories comes a YouTube send-up. In this case, Alex Bloor saw the story and decided to parody the NatWest situation to the tune of the Pet Shop Boy's "Go West."
Bloor confessed he did not expect so much interest in the video, which has already racked up more than 6,000 listens for lyrics like "Nat West I just want my dough, Nat West or to Barclays I will go."
"I have done a few other parodies before - some getting a few thousand hits, but this one seems to have struck a chord for a lot of people perhaps more than any other," he said. "This is because, I think, the issue has directly or indirectly affected virtually everyone."
