T-Mobile 2012 Commercial – What’s the Song?

DJ Shadow I Gotta Rokk

DJ Shadow‘s ‘I Gotta Rokk’ is the song in the latest T-Mobile commercial, which features an elegant lady in a pink dress who turns into a hardcore biker chick.

The woman looks into her closet and finds nothing but pink dresses until she spots something else in the back — a pink and black leather body suit with leather boots and gloves.

She hops onto a pink and black bike while the caption “No More Mr. Nice Girl” appears. She takes off and speeds through the city before disappearing into the night.

What does a motorcycle have to do with T-Mobile? The mobile communications company uses the vehicular-themed slogan, “Test drive America’s largest 4G network.”

The methodic thumping of DJ Shadow’s ‘I Gotta Rokk’ accompanies the images of the young lady turning into a biker queen. ‘I Gotta Rokk’ appeared on the 2011 EP of the same name. It also surfaced on the DJ’s subsequent full-length album ‘The Less You Know, The Better,’ a title he says was partly inspired by “being stuck overnight at some airport terminal in Dallas and having CNN and Fox blasting my brain out for no apparent reason.”
