We all know that famous advert where a plump builder, a bodyguard and a man in hot pants and stilettos stage an epic dance-off in an underground car park.

Well, two Kent teachers have created their own version of the MoneySuperMarket video and it's certainly gone down a hit.

Christopher Denney and Cameron Davidson filmed the video to show to their year 6 pupils at Grove Park Primary School, Sittingbourne, on their leavers day.

The video was watched in an assembly by 420 children and more than 100 parents.

Christopher, 27, said: "We did a Gogglebox style show where children were watching the TV and when they were changing the channels, there were different programmes like EastEnders and Jeremy Kyle.

"But in between the shows there were adverts. The children knew about the shows as they were in them, but they didn't know about the adverts.

"There was a lot of laughter and screaming. It wasn't silent in the hall!"

The video, which was filmed a few months ago, has been viewed more than 16,000 times on Facebook and has almost 300 shares and growing.

Christopher, from Repton Park in Ashford, who has been at the school for six years, added: "Cameron is moving to Singapore so he's left a legacy at Grove park.

"I'm not sure how we're going to top it next year, but our new teacher is really enthusiastic so we should be able to come up with something!"

Sharon Etherington has had children at the school for the past 18 years.

She said: "Chris Denney has been an amazing teacher and a brilliant influence on our children throughout their time at Grove Park. He was great when he taught them in years 3 and 5 but to teach them in their final year was the icing on the cake.

"For my daughter and I, Chris has supported us through some particularly difficult times, for which we are both truly grateful.

"To end the year with a fantastic leavers assembly had all the children, parents and teachers in tears.

"However these tears of sadness turned to laughter when we watched the advert starring Chris and an equally amazing teacher, Cameron Davidson.

"The fun and commitment put into their 'acting skills' just about sums this double act up! I know all parents would like to thank both Chris and Cameron for their love and commitment to our children."
