Gallops bag TV advert theme

by Ben Davis on 9 July, 2010 | 5 comments

Wrexham’s Gallops have bagged themselves a decent wedge of publicity with their song ‘Miami Spider’ being featured as the backing music to an advert for a new TV show.

TV Channel Fiver are bringing out a brand new late-night comedy-horror called ‘Ugly Americans‘. This animated series follows Mark Lilly, a social worker at the New York Department of Integration, as he helps new citizens – both human and ‘other’ – adapt to life in the Big Apple.

The series, originally from the US, is quite a big hit in the states and features on their popular Comedy Central channel. Ugly Americans is based on an original idea by Devin Clark, which was later developed by former The Simpsons writer David M. Stern
