During the VMAs last night there was a car commercial and all I have to say is that if your brand is picking a 5 year old Sia song that didn’t even chart too well as a song for a NEW commercial, you need to tap into culture a little bit. I’m begging for a world where we stop using songs like this and Roar by Katy Perry as the standard backing tracks for boring ads.
