Cadillac ATS vs. the World 2012 Commercial – What’s the Song?

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Show Your Bones
Interscope

Cadillac pulls out all the stops in its latest commercial, testing its vehicles on some of the most extreme roads on the planet and incorporating the music of indie rock heroes the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The promo features the track ‘Phenomena,’ which appeared on the Brooklyn trio’s 2006 record ‘Show Your Bones.’ That record is the group’s highest-charting effort to date and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album.

The song and commercial feature Karen O singing, “Something like a phenomena, baby / You’re gonna get your body off / Don’t fall asleep with the motor on / She’ll make you sweat in the water.

The hard rock buzz of the track makes it a good fit for the edgy two-minute trailer, which follows two men as they race around one of the world’s most dangerous mountain roads in a Cadillac ATS. “Go as fast as you can without taking this thing off the side of a cliff!,” the passenger urges the stunt driver.

The guys take the Cadillac around the world, from the Monaco Grand Prix race track to a narrow tunnel with jagged rock walls in the mountains of China. They somehow manage to race around each hairpin turn without crashing the car.
