Youtube parody charity appeal from Hustle nightclub
A parody charity appeal on
video-sharing website YouTube poking fun at Hustle nightclub in
Ashford has gone viral.
Setting itself up as an appeal to
help bring in cash for the club, the video sends up underage
revellers and the price of drinks.
The video, created by an unknown
prankster, was launched on the website on January 30, but remained
under the radar.
In recent days its hits have
increased, with almost 3,000 views today (Thursday), but bosses at
the Station Road club are laughing it off.
Promotions manager Charlie Couchman, pictured

found it very amusing, as it clearly doesn’t reflect anything
that’s happening at the club.
"New management took over this year
and we’ve been quick to stamp out under-age entry to the club, with
extra measures now in place to prevent this.
"Previously drinks offers
did run out, but that doesn’t happen anymore.
"As for us running out of money,
that’s clearly not the case.
"We’re currently in the process of
renovating every floor of the building, with the first level now
complete, and the other two to be completed in the next few
"And the video has actually had a
positive effect, with more people joining our Facebook wall."
