Pump It Up: Ford advert

Postby Goon Squad » Sun Jan 21, 2018 4:04 pm

Just watching detective series Vera on ITV, ad break comes and what do I hear but Pump It Up ! :shock: Ford advert !
I didn't think Elv liked, or agreed to his music in adverts! Am I wrong, is it an old advert,or did they twist his arm with the offer of a new car ?
Whatever the answer..................it sounded bloody great ! 8)

It’s a new advert for the Ford EcoSport.

Glad he's succumbed - it means more people get to know the song and his music. It's also hilarious that the makers of the ad, trying to sell stuff, are undermined by Elvis singing 'You don't really need it'!!!

I am with you Neil, i know there was a big discussion on line about him selling out but i cant think of the last time i heard Elvis on the radio. the single from the movie is great and got no airplay at all.

Unlike the Linda Macca food ad this advert is on everywhere

Let's hope the money from this can help fund a new album.
