If you are like me, then you’ve been watching that commercial for the Luxury at Lightspeed Lincoln MKZ and saying to yourself, “Ooooh pretty, I love that song!”
So, I don’t know about you … but didn’t have my childhood in the 80s, I was just born in the 80s and therefore, I didn’t know about Peter Shilling’s “Major Tom (Coming Home)” – which is the song used in the commercial.
Nor did I know about the remake for the commercial by a group/band called Shiny Toy Guns.
I love this advert idea. It gives me glee because it’s so upbeat, sleek, sexy, shiny and spacey. It’s all Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century like and makes me feel a little Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!
The entire commercial and music video is below:-
