Guess what city....

The original song is lovely but this version is really funny. Irn Bru is a Scottish soft drink which was once advertised as "Made in Scotland from girders!"

Now, can anyone guess what city is featured in this advert?

A tiny clue: My favourite British city of all time.... I love it in any season but most of all in summer.

I was just cleaning inside a cupboard when it occured to me that it is Edinburgh!

Well, one of those two anyway!?

Still a dreadful song though...

Trac, I won't give out the answer yet. I can't believe you had two attempts!
Which one don't you like? The original or this version?
Anyway, I am glad you're back in the land of the blogging. XXX

I think I saw the word "Glasgow" on the big yellow building. Very funny take on the Snowman!

Oh, I'm not back blogging. Just the odd Elvis song. It is Christmas after all... apparently!?

If I'm only allowed one guess, I'll go for the Edinburgh. Mainly because I think it is your fave city.

Still a dreadful song, either version! :O)

Ok, ok, Daphnée, you are right,un point!
I saw Glasgow flash past but I was on about the first city. Edinburgh with the castle on the hill.
Just goes to show that I am crap at organising competitions.
The question was ambivalently ambiguous... Did you pause the video?
Glad you like my snowman recycling powers.

Trac, Christmas? Blogging? Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Right again, deux points! It's only because you're in the know.
Might send you a haggis next time I go to Edinburgh.

I think it should be a draw! The lovely Daphnée there was quite right in spotting Glasgow, and like you said, I was in the know.

Erm... about time you sorted out your links there Cream, if you know what I mean!? Oh dear!

I've never tried Haggis, quite looking forward to it! :O)

Would you believe it! I've been trying to post a comment on and off over the last few days and the only one that gets through is some ????s!

Ok, then, Trac. It's a draw. You get half a haggis each! Daphnée can have hers with Brussels sprouts!!!
Haggis, my dear is delicacy! Enjoyed in Edinburgh by the linkful! Just ask those who know.

My lynx? Very wild!

Anon? Parlez-vous Français? Or just too many question marks?

Caro, what are the four questions then?
Blogger knows all the answers but he's a bit wild at the moment.

I have no idea why that accepted. I set up a google account 'cause I was told that's the only way in to beta these days, but up till now hasn't worked 3X in a row.

hate beta. hope this is just a bug.

Success at last, Mary! I hated Beta when I changed over...I still hate it.

Hayden, you are missing something delicious, I can assure you. As for Beta, perseverance is the answer.

I love haggis and neeps. I'm glad Glasgow isn't your favourite city, I'd be a bit worried if it were. Edinburgh is a cracking place. I hope to make it to the festival one year.

My cousin (in his Edinburgh restaurants) serves Haggis Balls in a coarse mustard sauce! Delicious!
Yep, I can recommend the Fringe.

Hi Cream
love the twist in the IRN BRU added

There's a give away at the beginning with that rotating hoist
at the canal lock
lifts wayer and barge or canal boat
