If you've ever been stuck inside your caravan when the weather outside was doing its 'Typical British Summer' routine, then you will surely be able to empathise with the inspiration for a hilarious new song that has appeared on YouTube.
Singer-songwriter Phil Ball, who goes by the name of Sillyplucker, wrote his Static Caravan Song on his ukulele while staying in his trusty holiday home, and his sideways look at the world of static holidaying is getting rave reviews.
With a chorus that goes "No matter where I roam/ from Dorset or to Bangor/ I'd like the world to know/ I'm a static caravanner", it is clear that Phil is certainly proud of his hobby.
Despite singing "There ain't enough room/ To swing a cat/ But I don't think that/ I'll be doing that", his affection for all things caravanning shines through in his lyrics and the video has gone down a storm with the Static Caravan Club.
"This is absolute comedy gold! The Static Caravan Club team have been singing this all day," SCC director Karl Metcalfe commented.
We challenge you to watch the video (below) and then not find yourself humming the catchy tune for the rest of the day!
