The band performed Europe’s 80s smash hit ‘The Final Countdown’ in the aisles of Asda’s Hatfield store.

Matador outfits clashed with big hair as the loco loco maraca shakers tossed Doritos around in the Town Centre supermarket last month.

The nacho fans have performed a variety of well-known hits in their own inimitable style, with East17’s ‘Stay Another Day’ and The Human League’s ‘Don’t You Want Me’ given a liberal dip in the salsa, to hilarious effect.

It is also not the first time Welwyn Hatfield has witnessed ‘The Final Countdown’.

Swedish rockers Europe performed their best-known 1986 anthem at Sonisphere in 2010.
