World Cup Posted on January 17, 2010 by Dean In 2006 I wrote this song and made this video for Mr John Otto Cleese to coincide with the World Cup. You know – THE World Cup – the FIFA World Cup. Football. The game played with the feet. By the whole world. Didn’t do too badly. Song written by Dean Whitbread, Ashley Slater. Oh yes, and John Cleese nabbed himself a credit too.
