    This is actually incorrect. The ad company Euro RSCG London approached my brother’s band “Chavo” and asked them to cover the Cameo song “Word Up”. Chavo is a Romany folk band. If you listen to the advert and the BossHoss cover they sound different, probably because they are. The advertising company were awarded a Yellow Pencil award for “use of music in film advertising”. If you follow the link below to the yellow pencil awards, you’ll see the ‘Music Arranger’ is listed as ‘John Greswell’, who is a member of Chavo.
