Tiktok sensation Sam Ryder strums for longs locks

Chris Long, 40, from Brayton has been busy setting up his new locksmith business, Longs Locks, which opened last week.

At no point did he think Eurovision star and ‘Spaceman’ phenom Sam Ryder would develop a promotional jingle for his new company, but that’s exactly what happened after Chris and his wife Laura, 34, ended up chatting with the star his Instagram live charge.

Chris said: “It’s been a really turbulent week starting the company and on Wednesday night my wife and I were having tea when she got a call from an unknown number.”

“You can imagine our surprise when it was actually Sam Ryder. Laura had listened to him and dropped her number without realizing that he would call.

“We talked all about our new local locksmith business – Longs Locks – that we started to cover York and Selby and he sang a business ‘radio jingle’ for us live on his stream.”

“Laura’s battery was low so we ended up talking to him about the watch.”

“We’re still in disbelief that he actually called us, sang us a song, followed our company page and even reposted us on his story saying he couldn’t get the Longs Locks song out of his head.”

“Sam was really big on YouTube and we started following him during the Covid lockdowns and listening to his New Year’s Eve party,” said Chris.

“I’m a huge fan of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury and Sam reminded me of him on stage.

“He’s just a really, really humble guy. For me, it meets exactly the right criteria.”
