28 Examples of Musical Commercials

From Singing Dad Auto Ads to Hungover Christmas Remixes

— June 8, 2013 — Marketing
With television advertisements costing a fortune to air per minute, the need to showcase something effective is key, and these stunning musical commercials are some great examples of cleverly thought-out advertising.

With singing competitions and music videos continuing to dominate within mainstream society, there's no wonder why agencies are choosing to incorporate song and music into their 30-second commercials. Showcasing rappers or actors singing serves to create a much more bold and striking impression that will surely stick with viewers longer than your average product ad. From singing sportswear ads to kooky musical cartoon ads, these inventive advertising techniques are incorporating aspects from pop culture in order to attract that much hipper and youthful audience.
