Facebook campaign to make internet sensation Wealdstone Raider Christmas number one gathers steam
A Facebook campaign has been set up to make internet sensation the Wealdstone Raider Christmas number one has been gathering steam over the last couple of weeks. The campaign is aimed at stopping this year’s X Factor winner from having a number one Christmas hit, much like Rage Against the Machine did some five years ago.
The Wealdstone Raider became an internet hit after someone filmed Wealdstone FC fan Gordon Hill ranting and getting angry at a game and his iconic rants have been used in the song called No Ground, No Fans. Originally released as a parody by Wakes last year, the new Facebook campaign seeks to make the song the number one hit this Christmas.
The Wealdstone Raider now has an agent and has been booking club appearances alongside Big Brother contestants across the country and has also been immortalised at a recent Dutch football match this week where a banner with a painted picture of Gordon and the slogan ‘You Want Some’ appeared at a football match between PEC Zwolle and Den Haag.
Paddy Power has the Wealdstone Raider at 100/1 to take the top spot this Christmas, so not only could you help No Ground, No Fans reach number one by buying the single, you could also make a cheeky bet and win yourself a load of money. Check out the song below:
