Lowe’s Spring Storage Commercial – What’s the Song?
The new Lowe’s commercial in which a woman rolls out her entire backyard like a carpet features an upbeat song about making sunshine from a young singer/songwriter.
Alyssa Bonagura’s ‘I Make My Own Sunshine’ is the theme music for the ad, which begins when a woman looks outside at her boring backyard and goes down to the basement to grab a carpet. When she unrolls it, the entire backyard appears, with a sidewalk made of stones, huge flower beds and a bird bath. If only gardening were truly that easy!
“It don’t matter if it’s raining / Nothing can phase me / I make my own sunshine,” Bonagura sings as the action unfolds. The spot touts Lowe’s as the best place to shop for yard and home improvement supplies.
Bonagura, a 24-year-old unsigned artist from Nashville, recently raised more than $9,500 on Kickstarter to help fund her next album. She has performed at Bonnaroo, and her Facebook page contains a testimonial from Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, who calls her “stunning, original, a future star in the making.”
Bonagura has been reveling in the attention her commercial has attracted since it began airing a few days ago. She tweeted, “I was just getting my nails done and and all the sudden heard my commercial. FRIGGIN SURREAL.” She also tweeted Carson Daly, requesting a performance slot on his show, and begged Lowe’s to sponsor her entire tour. It never hurts to ask, right?
