The Kraken Advert Music – Singer and song details for the Black Spiced Rum’s ‘Black Ink’ commercial.
Song Title: By The Beautiful Sea.
The music used in this latest ad for The Kraken Rum is the 1914 song ‘By The Beautiful Sea’ which, over the years, a number of different singers have recorded.
Though it’s hard to determine exactly which version is being played in the advert, it sounds most similar to Billy Murray and the Heidelberg Quintet’s original. You can download this recording from either iTunes or Amazon.
Kraken’s advert for their black spiced rum stars a CGI recreation of the legendary sea monster, from which the brand gets its name. Looking like an oversized giant squid, the film sees the image printed on Kraken bottles come to life, rapping its octopus-like tentacles around an unfortunate tall ship.
This same video previously appeared in November of 2014, that time featuring a song called ‘Sea Of Love’. You can watch that version below.
The above UK ad was uploaded to Kraken Rum’s YouTube page on the 12th of November, 2015, just in time for the Christmas rush.
