    I've just seen this advert on MTV and I think it is highly amusing.

    Has anyone else seen it?

    Basically, the lad is talking about him having a really tough life, at first the doctors couldn't diagnose what was wrong with him, then they found out...

    He was born with a Brass Band!!! Wherever he is, whatever he does, the band can appear at any given moment... (however its not a proper band, but still, its a bit off brass)

    Life imitates art doesn't it.

    Whatever you do, wherever you are, Band can spring up at any given moment...I love it!

    V strange instrument, the slide appears to be in the mouthpiece lead pipe, (as in a flugel/sop tuning slide), so the whole instrument moves as you play. must investigate it....

    I doubt even youngblood or Dirty Dozen or any other New Orleans brass bands make it onto MTV let alone british style bands.

    I reckon the band is just made up of actors and the music played by session players in the style of a traditional Romanian gypsy band.
