Gary Barlow super-fan urges singer to attend birthday in hilarious video

A MUSIC teacher’s video urging Gary Barlow to join her in Dundee for her 30th birthday party has gone viral.
Barlow superfan Jill Campbell rewrote the Take That classic Back for Good and played and sang in the clip, which has had over 120,000 views.
Jill’s slick video features a Barlow cardboard cutout and masks, alluring shots of the City of Discovery and plenty of pop star-style posturing.

 The 29-year-old from Broughty Ferry can be seen playing a pink childrens piano while she belts out the altered lyrics in a homage to her hometown.
The fanatic is also shown throughout staring adoringly at head shots of Barlow while lying on her bed clutching framed photographs.
She even captured footage of herself singing around the city while family members pranced around her in Gary Barlow masks.
Jill is now hoping her online campaign will convince the former X Factor judge to attend her milestone birthday next month.
She sings: “I guess now it’s time for you to come up, I feel its time.
“Got a picture of you in my bedroom, got your souvenirs from every show you’ve done, oh yeah.
“Went to London two or three times, to Dubai and Aberdeen. Now I think you should come and see me in Dundee.
“Whatever you do, I wanna see you, I really mean it, I just need you here in May.”
She adds: “Whenever I’m 30, come to the city of discovery you can sail the silvery Tay.”
In the past, Barlow has surprised couples at wedding by serenading them with Take That classics.
Since then, the 45-year-old musician has tweeted fans offering to sing at milestone birthday parties.

Campbell is hoping Gary makes a surprise appearance at her 30th
Mother of two, Jill, had already planned to have a Take That themed party for her 30th but knew that getting Barlow himself would be the ultimate birthday gift.
She said: “We decided we needed to think a little outside the box for the Gary Barlow campaign, so I thought music would be the best way to do it.
“I’m a piano player and singer, so I sat down at the piano and started playing ‘Back For Good’.
“We got the iPhone and iMac and managed to put together a video promoting our city of Dundee to show Gary that it’s a lovely place to be, and obviously asking him to come to my party.
“I’ve been a Take That Fan from day one, attending my first concert when I was eight in Aberdeen with my mum, sister and cousins.
“From then, my sister and I have been Take That addicts.
“I love him so much because he is the main pianist and vocalist in the band. He’s the main songwriter and I admire his talent.
“Every time I see him I love him more.”
