A Few Examples of Ska In Adverts

In 1969 Cadburys advertised their Fruit and Nut with this still excellent advert soundtracked by The Upsetters “Return of Django”


DFS with the Dillons went for “Train To Skaville” by The Ethiopians. Sky and Jacob’s Cream Crackers have also used the music in their adverts.

For Euro 2000 Adidas featured “Broadway Jungle” by Toots and The Maytals (also recorded by Prince Buster). The advert also featured David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Patrick Kluivert and Del Piero, so wasn’t cheap.


Confused.com Step It Up By Ditching Corden

The new Confused.com advert is excellent . They’ve replaced James Corden with Timothy Murphy and finished it off with Link Wray’s “Rumble”.

Sky Football’s scary season precursor reminds me of the zombies attacking Jerusalem in “World War Z” and is soundtracked by Dean Martin’s “Go Go Go Go”. I can’t embed it and it’s not on Youtube but you can watch it here.
