Estee Lauder Pleasures Commercial – What’s the Song?
Estee Lauder's commercial for its Pleasures Eau Fraiche fragrance features an acoustic song with a bouncy rhythm. Can you place that familiar song?
The tune that powers the ad is 'Rhythm of Love' by Chicago pop-rock group Plain White Ts. The clip begins with a distant shot of a male and female silhouette under a bridge, with the guy taking photos of the girl. After that, we see the rest of the commercial from the perspective of the guy, who follows around the young lady as she runs through a park, blows kisses and goofs off in the summer sun.
While she frolics, Plain White Ts guitarist Tim Lopez sings, "My head is stuck in the clouds / She begs me to come down / Says boy, quit fooling around / We may only have tonight / But till the morning sun, you're mine / Sway to the rhythm of love."
Fans may notice that the song is heavily edited, jumping around from verse to bridge to chorus to make sure it fits within the 30-second video. The song provides the only sound in the ad until the very end, when a voice reminds viewers to check out Estee Lauder Pleasures Eau Fraîche scent.
'Rhythm of Love' was the Plain White Ts' third Top 40 single, after 'Hey There Delilah' and '1,2,3,4.' The song appeared on their 2010 album 'Wonders of the Younger' and was the group's first single on which lead vocals were performed by Lopez instead of frontman Tom Higgenson, the voice behind 'Delilah.'
