ELISE BREWERTON: When the tide begins to turn

Have your say

Folks, I’m just loving Socks the moonwalking Shetland pony in the 60-second TV commercial for mobile internet firm 3.

If you haven’t seen it, just Google ‘dance pony dance advert’. Be careful though, there’s a couple of dodgy take-offs.

I thought that Socks doing his moonwalking to Fleetwood Mac’s Everywhere was all computer-generated.

But no, according to his owner Mari Williamson, five-year-old Socks is a bit of a show-off, and it took just two weeks to train him to moonwalk.

In the advert when the farmer comes along on his tractor, Socks stops dancing.

It made me think of all the times I’ve been in shops with piped music and couldn’t resist a little bootyshaking, then stopped in case anyone was watching.

Admit it folks, you’ve done it.
