One Hand in the Air for a Taxi, Fifty Quid if You're Sick on The Back Seat

If you haven't already seen it, have a look at this parody of Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind, about the Welsh town of Newport.
It's become an overnight hit on Youtube and I actually did a LOL on the bus when I watched it for the first time. And I never LOL.

Favourite lyric
Twinned with Guangxi Province in China
There's no province finer"
