Ideas for integrating Father into video for birthday ?

Okay.. bit of an odd topic.. but here we go..
Ive been working with Photoshop and 3DS mainly for a decade.. all self taught and primarily as a hobby alongside my dreary IT job... I lurk here and rarely post...

Anyway, a few years ago for my dads birthday I secretly took a bunch of photos of him in the lead up to the big day.... and 'integrated him' (for a lack of a better word) into the coaching role of his favorite football team.. making paraphernalia, banners, stickers etc.. (u get the idea) then turned his local pub into a surprise party where all his friends hang out.. and yeah the night was success....

His birthday isnt for another 6 months, but a friend of his has come up to me today and has asked what big plans I have in store this year :/ and Im running a blank...

I have been messing around with different software over the past year and am definitely no pro, but wanted to do something involving video..... Ive played a lot with Premiere now but as said above am no pro but when I think about it, I probably dont have to be when i comes down to doing something for my dad and a bunch of the guys down the pub

What I am really looking for atm is ideas...
Ive taken a few minutes of HD video of him with my phone (just to experiment with)... and if I want to I can probably get video of him 'walking' , 'talking' and doing various other things...

Considering his interests in football.. The pub scene.. becoming an old man.. etc etc..
what ideas do you have?

Hope I have provided enough..

Insert him in a scene of the film "GOAL!"?

Something completely OT, but some friends of mine recently did a video for a bridal couple. They interviewed the Groom with a whole lot of questions. Then they recorded themselves separately asking completely different questions, and edited them together with the grooms answers.

Not quite advanced CG, but funny non-the-less.
