British Gas Advert Song 2016 – Music and band details for the new ‘Free Electricity Weekends for Smart Meter Users’ TV ad, starring Wilbur the Penguin.
Song Title: More Than a Feeling.
According to the BBC, customers who have had smart meters installed in their homes will get to choose from free electric between 9am and 5pm on either Saturday’s or Sunday’s. Apparently users could then make a saving of around £60 on their annual bill.
No doubt customers will be keen to maximise their potential savings by using as much power as possible in that eight hour all you can eat period. Charging up all their devices, doing their laundry and, if it’s during the winter, using electric heaters to seriously turn up the temperature.
This British Gas advert, which we now have the video for (above), began airing on the 3rd of July, 2016. Despite it being the middle of summer though, the commercial still stars the companies wintry mascot Wilbur the Penguin.
Finally, the music playing in the ad is the amazing classic rock song from 1976: ‘More Than a Feeling’ by the American band Boston.
