The video for the track Ken! penned by Harry Hill sees Bill Roache aka Ken Barlow play a cowboy in a spaghetti western pastiche.

"I knew this was the venue to shoot in after seeing a plaster cast Indian Chief in a local shop window directing me fatefully towards the Lamb Hotel" explains Tom.

"Sadly I couldn't fit the singing moose in but I did manage to persuade Harry to ride a bucking bronco and Bill to dress as a cowboy. Things did get a little strange for Bill as we pulled out two bar stools onto the high street pavement and asked him to pretend to ride through the Arizona plains whilst being eyed by Corrie enthusiasts. To his credit he didn't grumble. Bravo Bill. He acted the part so well we are thinking about the possibility of Ken! The movie!"
