2012 Buick Verano Commercial – What’s the Song?
The mystery band in the new 2012 Buick Verano commercial is Neon Trees, who come to life with a live performance in the back of their tour bus for a loyal listener of Pandora streaming radio.
The creative ad depicts a regular woman walking into a dry cleaner. Parked behind her idling Buick Verano are several tour buses, each carrying a different musical act, from a country band to a symphony to a group of chanting monks.
Pandora comes to life when she gets back into her ride and chooses Neon Trees from her Pandora radio. "You guys are on," says the bus driver, and the band launches into their latest single, 'Everybody Talks,' right in the back of the bus. Frontman Tyler Glenn gets in a few Jagger-esque moves even while seated.
The audio of the song comes through the woman's speakers as she continues her drive. Disappointed about being passed over in favor of an alt-rock band, a member of the symphony says in disgust, "I can't believe she's listening to that noise!"
Glenn spoke about the Buick commercial in a recent interview, saying, "I don't think it's just a normal car commercial. It's for Pandora, too. Since it was music-related, it made sense." Drummer Elaine Bradley added, "Plus, my lifelong desire has always been to be in commercials. And I'm not even kidding!"
The peppy 'Everybody Talks' is the lead single from the Provo, Utah band's second album 'Picture Show,' which hits retailers on Apr. 17.
