VIDEO: Candle in the Wind reworked as a 'tribute' to HMV

Can you spot which ex-boybander has taken on the challenge?

A SONG ENTITLED ‘Goodbye HMV’ might be a little premature, but this offering from Mark Read touches on some of the more painful truths many have attributed the store’s troubles to.

Citing HMV as “the place they went to to see which movies to download” and “another casualty of the changing digital age” Read reworks Candle in the Wind, and does an uncanny impression of Elton John into the bargain.

Interesting point: If you remember the boyband A1, you might recognise Mark as a member of said boyband.

Here he is back in the day (in the fetching neon):
