Video: Happy Days for Crystal Swing’s attempts to ‘boost nation’s spirits’

THEY turned down the ‘X Factor’ earlier this year because they feared they would be “mocked as a family”.

But Cork trio Crystal Swing are evidently able to laugh at themselves.

Their latest video features a cover of the ‘Happy Days’ theme tune, with mother Mary Murray Burke staring as Missing Humming Bottom.

Meanwhile, daughter Dervla is Candy Boo Boo and son Derek is Rockin’ Ricky.

The video is, predictably, somewhat crazy, with the band hoping it brings them success akin to their 2010 hit ‘He Drinks Tequila’.
