Tuesday Throwback: Valspar Paint’s Beautiful Commercials

A few days ago, Sherwin-Williams bought its smaller rival Valspar. The news reminded of these Valspar commercials, which I loved. I remember them being on from around 2006-09. They’re incredibly beautiful, with the colors of Valspar paint being compared to the colors of nature. I really like the relaxing, slightly mysterious, new-agey music of these spots. Unfortunately, the music, created by Jonathan Elias, was made specifically for the commercials, so no downloading. A few of the ads can’t be embedded, so you’ll have to watch them on YouTube.

    Josh,

    Who was the female voiceover artist in the Valspar commercials (Sea, Climber, etc.) that featured Jonathan Elias’ music ?

    Thanks much. Mike

    Thanks so much for posting these. I remember vigorously searching for the second piece when I first heard it. I ended up downloading another Jonathan Elias song — pretty though not this particular track. Too bad it’s not commercially available.
