Susan Boyle Vs Comic Book For Scottish Pop Charts

In the left corner it's Susan Boyle and her album The Gift, current the UK's number one.

And in the right corner we have fictional comic book family The Broons, created by Dudley D Watkins for The Sunday Post, and their compilation album The Broons Family Album: A Braw Collection O' The Broons Favourite Tunes.

And while in the UK at large, it'll be Susan Boyle all the way, in Scotland the Broons are expected to make a real challenge for the Christmas number one.

Michty me! Here's a video ad for EMI's Broons-themed compilation album.

To be honest it's slightly less shit than the Susan Boyle affair. So there's that.
