Green & Black’s Advert Song 2017 – Video and music details to the brands new ‘Not everything is as dark as it seems’ TV ad for their Velvet Edition chocolate.
Song Title: Ready or Not (The Delfonics/Fugees cover).
Artist/Singer: Hazel Tratt.
Green & Black’s introduce viewers to their Velvet Edition smooth dark chocolate range in this brand-new atmospheric Little Red Riding Hood-themed TV advert.
The ad shows a girl riding her bike through the woods, while being perused by a pack of wolves. Things however turn out to be less sinister than they first appear, as we realise the group are in fact playing a game of hid and seek, as you do.
That theme explains the adverts song choice of ‘Ready or Not’, which was originally recorded in 1968 by American R&B vocal group The Delfonics under the full title of ‘Ready or Not Here I Come (Can’t Hide from Love)’.
The track was famously sampled in 1996 by US hip hop group the Fugees and has more recently been covered by such artists as Laura Mvula and Scala & Kolacny Brothers.
Providing the vocals to the version we hear in Green and Black’s commercial is the Reading-based session singer and composer Hazel Tratt, although her cover hasn’t been released for download as a full length single.
The above 30-second ad for Velvet Edition dark chocolate was posted to the Green & Black’s YouTube channel on the 18th of October, 2017. We’re not currently sure the name of the actress playing Red Riding Hood.
