Twitter TV Advert Song 2016 – This Is Happening

Twitter Advert Music – Singer and song info for Twitter UK’s current ‘This is Happening’ YouTube and TV ad.

Song Title: Keeping Your Head Up.

Artist/Singer: Birdy.

Available For Download From: Amazon and iTunes.

This rare TV advert for social network site Twitter features a song called ‘Keeping Your Head Up’ by Birdy.

The track comes from the English singers third studio album ‘Beautiful Lies’ and was released as a single on the 1st of January, 2016.

No stranger to having her music used in TV advertising, Birdy’s 2013 song ‘Wings’ gained huge exposure after being featured in Lloyds Banks recent ‘Horse Story’ 250 year anniversary campaign.


Twitter’s This is Happening TV commercial manages to cram quite a lot into its 30 seconds. There’s everything from dancing emojis, bopping kittens, dancing man found’s dance party, TBH Just Unicorn and more stuff that’ll have no meaning at all to non-Twitter users.

Continuing the dance theme, we also see Channel 4 news reader Jon Snow demonstrating some moves, while Barack and Michelle Obama are joined at the White House by 106-year-old Washington, D.C. resident Virginia McLaurin.

The above video was posted to Twitter UK’s YouTube channel on the 14th of April, 2016.
