Samsung Galaxy Hands Commercial – What’s the Song?

Raconteurs Hands
Third Man Records

When Samsung Galaxy decided to create a German commercial based around the concept of hands, the company had an easy choice in terms of selecting the music for the ad.

The obvious pick was the Raconteurs‘ 2006 track ‘Hands,’ which can be heard during the entire 60-second ad.

The spot, titled Handzeichen (Imagespot), features shots of people using their hands in various ways, from giving high-fives to making prints in the sand. A deep sea diver gives a thumbs-up to the camera, a woman blows a kiss, a politician raises her right hand to take the oath of office and a street dancer grabs his crotch in tribute to Michael Jackson.

Some famous hand gestures make appearances in the clip, including Spock’s Vulcan salute from ‘Star Trek’ and astronauts waving as they begin a shuttle mission into outer space. The ad concludes with a depiction of the latest cool thing people can do with their hands — use the touchscreen on Samsung’s Galaxy line of phones and tablets.

‘Hands’ appeared on ‘Broken Boy Soldiers,’ the debut album for the group featuring Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler. ‘Hands’ was a successful single in Canada and the U.K., cracking the Top 30 in both countries.
