    Locations?? The bandstand, or white bridge over the river in Viccy Park. Or through the town a la Bono on the back of a moving vehicle, with forumites passing by.

    like the pageants stafford used to have?

    what about the castle? the high house? the gatehouse....

    ...in fact, what about landmarks from each of the places mentioned in the song? eg, wildwood = kwiksave

    Finbar could do his line, in a Sainsbury/Tesco/asda trolley, I'm thinking Pulp "common people", Tenshon in the Sadie Frost role.

    What about using local landmarks as mentioned .. castle , asdas, sainsburys, joxers etc .. etc .. and doing a recording of the shed enders at marston road singing the "I'm a staffordian" bit at the start of the chorus .. Could use footage from things like farmers market, Shakespeare at the castle ..etc .. Use some stills from Sandwich boards, and other publicity already

    You could write the vid as a mini adventure .or two ?. with sofa going to all the various places ..bit of a panic on dressed in rambler or hiker gear complete with bobble hat and rucksack.. carrying an OS map or something going through the various places in a bit of a panic to find "something" .. then finishing it at Marston road with the chorus .. A kind of lost and cant find my way to stafford type thing ..or something else ..

    What about a spoof on prison break..

    Sofa has been banged up for varios crimes of one sort or another and he is talking to his cellmate about the place and his memories come flooding back to good old stafford town and so having gone through what he likes about the place and its various attractions makes an escape bid .but only in his dreams .. . maybe a bit benny hill speeded up or something and comes back to the town .. or maybe thats a bit mental..

    Or maybe .. suited and booted type one.. theres a big meeting , sort of planning commitee or somesuch where it appears that something bad is about to happen to the town ( a bypass or something..hang on thats happenin!) ..Whatever tho it's going to get developed beyond recognition .. type stuff.. the planners are adamant its going to go ahead.. lots of this is what we are gooing to do to the town type dialogue and maybe a model on a table showing what its going to be like ..lots of stern looks and "we know whats good for the place" .. then when it looks like the stafford populus cant win the fight .. one voice starts to sing a bit quiet at first getting louder .. cue sofa song , maybe with a kind of music, dancey bit .. where the town residents at the meeting get involved in the chorus and start taking over the meeting .. which closes with the flabergasted planners and big wigs either throwing the paperwork in the air or tearing it up .. knowing that the people of stafford aint going to let this happen ..




    Or



    then perhaps for the names could try a sort of Bob dylan esque S homesick blues with the cards to flick through the different names somewhere in it ..

    and er.. thats my brainstorming bit done .. could be silly but never know there might be somethin in there ?..

    At least there no dragons or nuclear fallout or anythin in my ideas..

    thats my tuppence worth anyway ..

    toodles ..

    Just as long as it's got lots of zooming in and out to make it feel like the old Doley Sofa days I'll be happy.

    I agree with ideas of driving a car through stafford and pointing to places although I don't know if health and safety would be an issue at all!!! The idea mentioned regarding cards with items on Dylan stylie could work but knowing the sofa I think he'd want more action!!! Perhaps sofa could gather friends and family and each person could appear in one of the locations mentinoed with a similar t-shirt on to the sofa explaining that they are a staffordian too!

    Alternatively I personally think the best way forward would be to have the sofa appearing at every location and looking more knackerd as the video progresses, maybe dropping maps and various tourism information flyers etc behind him on the way, or possibly handing them out to friends etc in the vid....ended in with the sofa appearing with feet up and a pint in his fave stafford watering hole surrounded by his fellow staffordians etc! I like the frantic nature of the rushing around on this one as this could also match the quite frantic vocals during the song and add to the comic effect!

    Love the idea of the (former) shed end siniging chorus, but you'd need to act sharpish as the season ends on Saturday. An alternative would be the charity game on May 6th but I don't think the attendance will be quite as large.

    for anyone who hasnt seen sofa performing the mighty song lived, he will be doing a command perforemance at the multi forumite bash this weekend. so i reckon this should make it on the video n all..

    re the idea of the shed sionging, this would indeed be a beautiful moment, reminiscent of the wembley crowd singing 'footballs coming home' on three lions....maybe???!!!
