YouTube indyref star Matthew Lygate has turned his talents to a support video for Newsnet.scot, joining our rolling appeal to raise funds to sustain the site.
Newsnet Video: The Force Awakens
Matthew – whose “Imperial Masters” spoof lampooning the visit of dozens of Labour MPs and peers to a referendum rally last summer attracted more than 250,000 views in a single day – created the video as part of a series that includes actress and campaigner Elaine C Smith.
At the weekend, Matthew was back to his pranks when he waylaid Labour activists at Tollcross swimming centre in Glasgow, to a Muppets soundtrack.
“I’m here to endorse the amazing work of Newsnet,” commented Matthew. “Thanks to Newsnet for all your hard work.”
