Music & the Ad:: Heineken & The Asteroids Galaxy Tour



The above is a 60" spot for Heineken that uses "The Golden Age" by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, a Danish band that got their real start opening for Amy Winehouse. Here's a 90" version of "The Entrance" and a 3m5s music video version::



The song came out in 2009 and here's the original music video. The part with Mette Lindberg's head on a vinyl record made me think of Rob Wells {best known as Ricky, from the Trailer Park Boys} in Hobo with a Shotgun.


A little after "the Golden age" was released, the band's "Around the Bend" was used by Chiat Day in Apple's iPod Touch ad demoing its gaming capabilities that take advantage of the device's accelerometer::
