In amongst all the big Christmas adverts that have launched recently, Gala Bingo have also released their new campaign. It takes the 80s classic Bananarama tune and turns it into a singalong tune for bingo players. Gala would like their players to play happy and to demonstrate this they’re are singing from all corners including the garden, hill walking and on the sofa.
Take a look penny fans and see what you think! We’ve been reading a lot of reviews and social media comments about the advert and there’s a real mix in terms of reactions. Some people love it whilst others are less impressed. Any way we spotted one comment on Youtube that said the song was Topsham Ten by Electric Eden so we went to investigate… and found this video.
From what we can make out Topsham Ten is a kind of boozy night out type tune – and yes there’s the old Na Na Na Hey Hey in the track too. We have to say we much prefer this to the Gala Bingo one – but then neither are in the same league as that of Bananarama’s track but did you know that this wasn’t the original? The original in fact was done by a 70s band called Steam!
However topping off everything surely must be this version by Crazy Frog. Remember him! We’re sure he’s in the current Danone advert?). Anyway he did a bizarre remix of Na Na Hey Hey – oddly enough this actually sounded great once upon a time.
To bring you back to a degree of sanity here’s the version we most remember – that from Bananarama! We wonder whether they’ll be back in the charts if the Gala advert is a success?
Aside from all the Na Na Na’s and Galalala’s there’s a big charity promotion running at Gala Bingo this month. Play in qualifiers to win tickets to a Saturday finale where you could win tickets to a VIP Christmas event. At the event, in aid of the Royal Voluntary Service, Gala will be attempting to break the world record for the biggest ever bingo card.
