Scott Parker’s post-match interviews being overdubbed by The Streets has undoubtedly been one of the best things to come out of ‘Football Twitter’ over the last couple of years.
We’ve seen a number of the group’s tracks given the treatment. The one that really kickstarted the fad was Parker’s emotional post-match interview when Fulham beat Brentford in the play-offs, featuring the iconic Dry Your Eyes.
Then there was Stay Positive, mashed up with the gaffer bemoaning the handball rule.
And of course, one of our personal favourites, Don’t Mug Yourself, taken after Fulham beat Leicester.

Given the immense popularity of those clips, Twitter has gotten involved to take the trend a step further.
Thanks to the wonders of CGI, they’ve substituted Mike Skinner for Parker in the original Don’t Mug Yourself video – and you can watch it below.

“Our Tweeters’ wit and wisdom light Twitter up every day and we’ve loved seeing them create these Scott Parker x The Streets mixes. The memes have had such a brilliant response from football fans and music fans alike that we’ve decided to give them what they’ve been crying out for – a genuine musical collaboration between the Premier League’s most poetic manager and British music’s most iconic storyteller.”
