People always want to know about commercial tunes, so I think I’ll make this a weekly feature. What’s That Song? Fridays.
Artist: Iggy Pop, Song: “The Passenger”
Love it. One of my favorite current commercials. Drinking Captain Morgan is fun. Being a pirate is also fun, especially when it’s the romanticized type with spontaneous wench-filled parties on the high seas. A great choice of song complements this ad. Though as we learned from that South Park episode, real piracy isn’t such a good time.
Artist: Run DMC, Song: “It’s Like That”
Artist: The Knocks, Song: “Make It Better”
Another sweet summer commercial. More than drinking Corona Light, this ad really makes me want to go to a rooftop party. I really like the cinematography too…the skyline at night just pops.
Artist: Real McCoy, Song: “Another Night”
Lest ye think of me as some kind of drunk, I’ll include a non-alcohol advertisement. Though truthfully, the posts about alcohol commercials always get the most views on my blog. Anyway, this spot for Farmers Insurance is pretty amusing. And the song is a cheesy ’90s classic.
