TravelSupermarket Advert Music 2016 – Video, band and song details for the travel comparison sites comical new ‘Holiday Like a German’ TV and YouTube ad.
Song Title: September.
Artist/Band: Earth Wind & Fire.
Available To Download From: iTunes and Amazon.
Get your towels down first and ‘holiday like a German’ is the message being delivered in Travel Supermarket’s new 2016 ad. Starring holidaymaker Nico, the campaign encourages viewers to exercise the same high levels of efficiency and travel planning skills as our German counterparts.
Not wishing to leave us in any doubt about Nico’s nationality, the ads creators equip their man with an array of German visual cliches. Wearing socks with sandals and German flag budgie smugglers, as well as sporting an impressive mullet and moustache combo, the only things missing seem to be the lederhosen and a stein glass of beer.
The song you hear playing in the advert is called ‘September’, a 1978 hit for the American R&B/disco group ‘Earth, Wind & Fire’. The track reached number 3 in the UK singles chart and 8th position on the US Billboard Hot 100.
You can now find ‘September’ on Earth Wind & Fire’s Greatest Hits album, along with such classic songs as ‘Boogie Wonderland’, ‘After the Love Has Gone’, ‘Let’s Groove’ and ‘Shining Star’.
The above ad was uploaded to the TravelSupermarket.com YouTube channel on the 5th of January, 2016 and has already received over half a million views.
