70 Musical Commercials

From Cell Phone Symphonies to Informative Singing Alarms

— December 17, 2014 — Marketing
These musical commercial ads are all about creating a catchy tune that sticks in your head and makes you tap your feet along, whether it's to something that's feel-good or funny. These examples of musical marketing for fashion brands, cars, fast food and even endangered animals show the power that sound has, when it spreads like wildfire over social media and the Internet.

Some of the most fun examples of musical marketing campaigns include Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett teaming up to present a H&M fashion collection, Borjomi's water vending machine that rewards expert piano players with a treat and Wendy's turning tweets sent in from fans into comical love songs about its pretzel burgers.
