Busted track down their schoolboy crush Miss McKenzie – watch

She's what they went to school for...

Busted have released a video in which they track down the subject of their schoolboy obsession, Miss McKenzie, in a promo video for their forthcoming UK tour.

Miss McKenzie is the central character of the band’s first single ‘What I Go To School For’, which was released in 2002 and peaked at number three. In the track, the band describe their love of their teacher, saying “Girlfriends I’ve had plenty, none like Miss Mackenzie, that’s what I go to school for.”

Matt Willis described how the video came to be, saying:

“We were thinking of interesting things to film whilst we were recording at Abbey Road, and came up with the idea of tracking down the original Miss McKenzie from the ‘What I Got To School For’ video.”

“It was a really fun trip down memory lane and took us back to 13 years ago when we first filmed the video. And she still looks great!”
