Three men want to help save pubs by getting a Christmas number one.

Tone Def Tony, also known as Anthony Donnelly, from Maidstone , Darryl Finch, from Margate and Paul Davey from Ramsgate penned the "I got ****** with Santa Clause" tune in an attempt to help save the pub industry, which has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

The trio will be donating 50% of all download sales from the song to the pub trade, and have even promised to donate 100% of sales if they can get a Christmas number one.

"We can all agree it’s been a very, very strange year," Anthony said.

"All our lives have been turned upside down by this ‘panic-demic’, and the already struggling pub and hospitality industry has been hit especially hard.

"That’s why we want to do their bit and help out. In an effort to get the nation back on their feet we're donating half of our online sales.

The song, which Anthony described as "much different to a Christmas song about sausage rolls", is available on music platforms from October 24.

'We went out for a beer, did a pub crawl, got lashed up, got into a brawl.'

Some of the lyrics from the song include: "I got ****** with Santa Claus, he’s gonna get it from ‘er indoors. Won’t be no gifts for kids this year, ‘cos Santa an’ me went out for a beer.

"We went out for a beer, did a pub crawl, got lashed up, got into a brawl. The cops turned up and put us away, so there won’t be no presents on Christmas Day.

"Won’t be no presents on Christ-mas Day. Won’t be no presents on Christ-mas Day. Won’t be no presents on Christ-mas Day. 'cos Santa an’ me got put away."

The group will be recording a music video for the song next week and are asking anyone who wants to get involved to contact them here.
