Scott Parker and The Streets' 'Dry Your Eyes' mash-up is genius


Fulham were promoted back to the Premier League on Tuesday after beating Brentford in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.

Joe Bryan scored two goals in extra-time to seal promotion for the Cottagers. Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back for Brentford at the death but it was too little too late.

Fulham boss Scott Parker conducted an emotional interview with Sky Sports after the final whistle, expressing his desire to become a normal husband and dad again following a stressful and demanding campaign.

"The facts are, the reality is, you can't really enjoy it,” Parker said. “You win a football match and by the time you get to Saturday night, having a beer or a Chinese, you're already thinking about Monday morning, the next game. We live in a world and a profession where you win a game, you lose the next one and you're deemed a failure.

"You realise you have to always be at the top and always planning. Not for me, I hope that after tomorrow I can just sit down with the family, my wife and kids who have been on eggshells for the last year probably, and they get their husband and dad back who does the things I want to do really."


Parker earned praise from football fans for his open and honest comments.

But one man - the talented @MarkyPickard - spotted the opportunity to turn Parker’s interview into a video which has gone viral.

The video, which has been retweeted and ‘liked’ thousands of times, is an incredible mash-up of Parker and The Streets’ memorable 2004 song ‘Dry Your Eyes’.

The original version has gone viral…

Although we have to say, the second version from the same guy is even better (the second video of the two)…

Absolutely superb.

The video has gone viral on various platforms, including Reddit. Let’s check out some of the reaction…

ClogBriste said: “He sounds so much like Mike Skinner it's unreal.”

While MikeOchertz simply wrote: “This is beautiful.”


Yungchigz said: “Really liked his new album 'None Of Us Are Getting Out Of The Championship Alive’”

And Sabbypuk commented: “This is incredible. I lost is at ‘avin a little bit of Chinese’ yessss spot on.”

Perhaps Parker will agree to a duet with Skinner if Fulham stay up next season?
