Music artist and social observer Cooper Clarke - described by Sir Paul McCartney as "one of Britain's outstanding poets" - rattles off a few specially commissioned verses for sports outfitter Fred Perry's Annual Traditions Christmas message in his trademark quickfire style. The 1'15" spot is a visual treat too, with images in the style of gig posters accompanying Dr John's distinctive Salford tones. Sporting fans will know that Fred Perry was set up by the eponymous British tennis champ who won Wimbledon three times. The last time was in 1936, which set a record for male British tennis players that was only broken in 2013 when Andy Murray - now the World No 1 - lifted the coveted trophy.
