Whilst steam cleaning the bar after they had closed one final time, the 34-year-old bar manager from Kirkby had an idea to keep his regulars entertained until they could reopen once more – by performing music videos and uploading them to the Hop In facebook page.
“I knew that people would be down about the situation so I decided to make the videos.
“People asked for more as it cheered them up, so now I need to keep thinking of fresh ideas.”
Ian has since recorded his take on Eric Prydz’ hit music video ‘Call on Me’ and his version of Britney Spears’ ‘...Baby One More Time’ amongst others.
