Amazon Prime Advert 2016 – Video and music details for the online retailers ‘Vicar and Imam meet for a cup of tea’ YouTube and TV ad.
Song Title: I giorni.
Musician/Composer: Ludovico Einaudi.
With no cute animals or babies in sight, this latest commercial shows a Christian Vicar and a Muslim Imam meeting up for a cup of tea, where the pair discover they have a shared problem.
Noticing that the Imam has a hard time standing up after their chat, the Vicar uses Amazon Prime’s inclusive next day delivery service to order his friend some padded knee supports. But as we see, it turns out the Imam has the same thing in mind.
The piece of piano music you hear playing in the background of the advert is titled ‘I Giorni’, a song recorded in 2001 by the classical Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi.
Following its airing on Radio 1 (yes Radio 1) in 2011, I Giorni went on to reach number 32 on the official UK singles chart.
The above extended version of this Vicar and Imam TV ad was posted to the Amazon.co.uk YouTube channel in mid-November, 2016.
