Royal Bank of Scotland Advert Song 2016 – Music and singer details for RBS’ new ‘Royal Bank for Scotland – Notes’ TV ad.
Song Title: Out of the Blue (Piano Version).
Their new advert follows the journey of a Scottish £10 note as it gradually makes a journey from its homeland, all the way down to London.
The note first gets paid to a fisherman for his hard work, then to his daughter who uses it to pay for a taxi after a night out. The taxi driver then generously throws the tenner in the air at a party, where it’s collected by a young girl. She then spends the cash down her local sweet shop, before the shop owner electronically sends the money to her son.
Although he then draws the funds from a cash machine, for the purpose of the story I’ll assume it’s still the same note. The guy then uses the money to pay for a snack, with the same note then being given to a lady as part of her change. She then finally uses the Scottish tenner to pay for a London cab, much to the disapproval of the driver.
Even though this is a fictional story, when you think about it, millions of notes and coins are taking ongoing real life journeys like this all the time.
This 60-second video was posted to the official Royal Bank of Scotland YouTube channel on the 24th of September, 2016.
Providing this TV ads music are the appropriately Scottish indie pop-rock band Prides, with a just-released piano version of their 2014 single ‘Out of the Blue’. Singing the song is Prides frontman Stewart Brock.
