Six Best EDM Placements in Commercials
Dancing robots, acrobatic bears, Victoria's Secret angels and shuffling hamsters are among the best new acts in TV commercials--but what about the music? Here are some of the best EDM tracks you can hear on TV today.
Mord Fustang - A New World
I want what's in that cereal. With one bite, the nine-year-old English popping sensation Arizona Snow fills the room with energy. As she stomps violently to the ground, she revitalizes her stuffed bears. These dancing bears steal the show, as they backflip, spin, pop and lock their way to fame. This Weetabix Chocolate Spoonsize commercial truly introduces us to a new universe, with Mord Fustang's song, "A New World".
LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem
In a world ravished by war, who's going to save the world? Apparently it's going to be the three Kia hamsters as they shuffle to LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem." As much as the song is overplayed, this commercial will get you and your grandma up and dancing. This futuristic battleground is transformed into b-boy heaven, as robots drop their guns to shuffle and head spin. One question. Where did the rastafarian hamster come from?
Nero - Me & You
"Are you ready, do you know?" Beats by Dr. Dre launched a new commercial introducing their limited edition color headphones. There is a heart-pounding bass drop that follows every new color being explored by exploding paint balloon on an innocent victim. Nero's song "Me & You" is perfectly placed to entice consumers to purchase the candy-colored headphones with the lyrics, "Are you ready, Do you know? I feel it too." Are you ready to be hit in the face with paint filled balloons by Dr. Dre?
M83 - Midnight City
What's better than seeing the hottest girls in the world? Hearing M83 playing in the background of course. Victoria's Secret did the right thing by adding M83's track, " Midnight City," which makes for a magical soundtrack that complements these lovely angels in Prague. It's like having a fashion show in your own living room.
Skrillex - Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites
So you didn't think white-water rafting was intense enough. On this slow-motion, action packed thrill ride, GoPro hit it out of the park by adding the brutal Dubstep anthem from Skrillex, "Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites" by Skrillex. Now when you travel down a breathtaking waterfall, thank Skrillex for providing this iconic theme song.
Skrillex - Reptile
No one will ever replace the original groundbreaking techno remix of the Mortal Kombat theme song by the Immortals. How ever, MK9 did a pretty awesome job by using Skillex's song "Reptile" to promote this new bone-breaking game. Liu Kang does his signature flying bicycle kicks in sequence with each DJ scribble. Sub Zero applies a bone crushing saber strike to a frozen Scorpion, at the climax of the song. Skrillex even adds the famous line "Woopsie." Finally with a kick to the crotch, Jax finishes the song as it ends with bones shattering. What more do you want in a commercial?
