U.K.'s Master Of Ska/Reggae/Punk Mister Jack Climbs To #35 Most Viewed Musician On YouTube
Online PR News – 01-December-2010 – – Sarah Mayal of Arival Records announced that the U.K.'s Master of Ska/Reggae/Punk, Mister Jack, has released the video to accompany his upcoming Christmas single, "Santa Is Comin'". The track should be well received if the video's numbers are any indicator, as is it currently at #81 most viewed on YouTube in the U.K. There's even more good news just in time for Christmas as Mister Jack's YouTube channel is currently at #4, and Mister Jack himself is sitting pretty at #35 for the most viewed musicians on YouTube.
Mister Jack's video, "Santa Is Comin'" begins with an animated Santa and reindeers pulling a sleigh that is about to trample a bearded male as he shouts to whomever will listen, "Santa is coming!" The music starts to play and the video switches to real life, with Mister Jack and his band playing in a bar. The song itself has a catchy reggae and ska feel to it with a slow beat that is reminiscent of Jimmy Cliff. The scenes switch from Mister Jack and crew shopping for holiday items in a department store, to frolicking outside in the snow, to Mister Jack being a little naughty with one of Santa's female helpers. Mister Jack sports a Beastie Boys look with his black top hat, Adidas track jacket and sunglasses. Lyrically speaking, Mister Jack is pondering his female counterpart's desires for this Christmas. Overall, it's a fun and festive holiday track that naturally incorporates Mister Jack's British humor. He appears to be having a jolly ‘ole time and is in good spirits. Then again, what man wouldn't be with two scantily clad females around him? Bring out the egg nog, because Santa is Comin'!
Born in Hammersmith, West London, in 1986, the artist known as Mister Jack has garnished many accolades over the years for his brand of music which is an anthemic mix of what he calls "power pop, punk, rock, ska and a hint of British humor".
