Frank Sinatra In Service of Pothole Patching (Video)
Tuesday, March 26, 2013 - 11:54 AM
That friendly tuxedo clad road inspector is singing a message of municipal upkeep. Imagine some of these choice lyrics set to Frank Sinatra's My Way:
"As now potholes appear / and if you fall, then you'll be hurting / don't worry friends, help is here / we'll take your calls, you can be certain."
"At work our days are full / inspecting all our paths and byways / and more, much more than this, at work in hiiiiighways."
"We lay each tarmac course, / not when it's wet, but on a dry day / and more, much more than this, at work in hiiighways."
Watch the full video for four minutes of robust crooning in the service of pothole patching courtesy of the Worcestershire County Council, U.K.
