Blackout


Orange Advert - New York Blackout - 'Svetlana Sucks Lemons' 2004 UK

Advert for Orange showing the New York Blackout with the piercing voice of Joanna Newsom singing in the background. I love this ad!

Who knew that Joanna Newsom's simple, provincial tune "Clam Crab Cockle Cowrie" screams "Give us your money." I'm still not sure that it does, but apparently the folks at HSBC think so. The wistful Milk-Eyed Mender closer soundtracks an ad whose plot revolves around some literal tree huggers and some lumberjacks whose work they're obstructing. There is a twist when it turns out that a lumberjack and an activist are "so in love."
