Promising to help users get off to a flying start and unpack the joy of travel, this latest TV ad from American Express promotes their Preferred Rewards Gold Card.

Amongst other benefits, this particular Amex credit card claims to offer airport lounge passes, along with hotel room and car rental upgrades.

The song you hear playing in the background of this commercial is predictably titled ‘Move On Up’. This track was released as a single back in 1971 by the American singer-songwriter and musician Curtis Mayfield.


Although the near-9 minute long original album version failed to achieve much success, a shorter edit of the song later reached number 12 on the UK singles chart.

The above 30-second video was posted to the official American Express UK YouTube channel on the 2nd of November, 2016 and is currently airing during TV ad breaks.
