Songs in commercials
Songs in commercials -- Paul Van Dyk and New Order rock ads for Jeep and AT&T
1. A stream of water — namely, Smirnoff Source, liquor-infused H2O (!) — performs a jazzy little jig to The Rapture‘s funky ”Whoo! Alright Yeah… Uh Huh” from 2006.
2. The evocative ”Time of Our Lives” (2003) by German über-DJ Paul Van Dyk provides the soundtrack to the ubiquitous ad in which sexy young Jeep owners frolic and go off-roading.
3. Cute but disturbingly anthropomorphic M&M’s (who wants a candy with hair?) bop about to British rockers The The‘s cheery 1984 ditty ”This Is the Day.”
4. The unmistakable riff of ”Age of Consent” — New Order‘s classic track from 1983 — returns for the celebratory new AT&T-Cingular ad.
