WATCH: Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant is an unexpected visitor for Doreen Tipton



After all, playing to thousands of adoring fans every night must be more enjoyable than being a travelling salesman offering to tarmac peoples drives?

The West Bromwich born singer exposed his new career path in a promotional trailer for upcoming comedy film Doreen: The Movie, where he is looking for business under the guise of Black Dog Tarmac ltd.

Despite attempting to charm a potential customer with lines such as "Would you care for a little bitumen slapped up your alley?" the singer fails to seal the deal.

The film, set for release on October 18, tells the story of Doreen Tipton, the world famous Lazy Cow from the Black Country, who began as a comedy creation in a video that went viral on YouTube.

The worlds introduction to Doreen came three years ago when film maker David Tristram, from Quarry Bank, near Dudley, uploaded a four minute 'mockumentary' to YouTube, which has since racked up nearly 1,400,000 views.

The character, played by Gill Jordan, became the star of her own stage show, had her biography written and is now set to be a star of the big screen.

In the promotional clip put online ahead of the films release, Wolves fan Plant knocks on Doreen’s door, which is answered by her next-door-neighbour and all-round skivvy Doris.

Doreen asks, through Doris, if he wants money in return for laying her new drive, to which he replies: “I’m quite solvent at the moment but I could do with a little bit, a pinch here and there for some apple juice."

Despite insisting that he will use 'the finest bitumen in the land, from Tividale', Plant is met with a slammed door, before pushing his business card through the letterbox, which reads 'Plant Hire, Your Driveway to Heaven'.

As he wanders off, the golden haired singer ponders to himself that 'there must be an easier way to make ends meet'.
