It’s a funny way to make ends meet

You know how sometimes you have a song stuck in your head, but you don’t know what it’s called or who sings it? Well, thanks to advertising, I often find I have that “It’s a funny way to make ends meet” song stuck in my head. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well here it is:

The Gossip- Heavy Cross

Yeah, so I’m not a perfume person, but I do love the Dior commercial that features the above song.

I love the song, which I had never listened to completely until 3 minutes ago, but the visuals are pretty great too.

Also, the way the singer says “You” is so weird that you could imagine it being “Dior”.

Very good choice. Bravo advertisers who made that decision.

I often wonder what order certain commercials are conceived in. Did the Nationwide marketing team start with the idea that people baby their cars and then try to find the perfect song? Or did they see “Love is Strange” on a list of options they could afford and work from there?

Anyway, those are my rambles for the evening. I’m going to stop watching so much tv soon. Seriously.

  1. love the commercial – Charlize surges my blood

  2. I always wonder about the advertising world! Especially when a really terrible commercial comes on and I always think, “How many people approved this before it went on TV?!”
