Crystal Pepsi and other spectacular product failures
Big brands are constantly inventing new products, but what happens when they get it wrong?
Chris said: "I was blown away by the reception to 'Here's To Christmas', and when I was asked to record another I just had to! I hope that with '...And A Happy New Year', especially in this year, I can give people a little bit of festive cheer, and something to sing-along to."
The album also features two brand new songs - 'Mr Claus' and 'Happy New Year' - which have been written for the 'Soccer Saturday' reporter by Richard Scott and Kelvin Andrews, who have previously worked with Robbie Williams.
Kamara has joked he is "gunning" for festive crooner Michael Buble.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'm more Buble than Bing. Buble is the one I'm gunning for. Bing Crosby is a legend."
The 62-year-old star is hoping to "save" Christmas, despite the coronavirus pandemic casting a shadow over the celebrations.
Chris said: "I'm sure lots of people are thinking Christmas might be cancelled but it won't be. We have to make the most of it. I'll save Christmas."
'Here's To Christmas' reached the top 10 in the charts last year, and Kammy revealed he felt under pressure to make it more than a gimmicky release.
He said: "If it had been dodgy, I would have got slaughtered. The fact it was good saved me from the battering."
