Lucky Generals has created a 60 second TV commercial, featuring football favourite "Vindaloo", to launch Paddy Power's bid for Euro 2016 glory. The twist is that the song (originally performed by Fat Les to support England's 1998 World Cup effort) now celebrates the one team from the British Isles that isn't going: Scotland.

A host of Scottish celebrities star in the film, directed by Peter Cattaneo of Academy Films. These include former footballers Frank McAvennie and Andy Goram (who play keepie-up with a haggis); entertainers such as Michelle McManus and the Krankies; and even figures such as Robert the Bruce and the Loch Ness Monster. Together, they march through the Highlands drizzle, chanting their defiance and proclaiming the fact that they don't care that Scotland isn't there, because they'll be betting on England to lose.
