that schweppes burst song: cinematic orchestra feat patrick watson - to build a home
what a delight to see an original commercial for a soft drink. haunting and whimsical at the same time, this is just plain amazing work!
now, believe it or not, every burst in this beautiful ad was shot simultaneously with the people around them. as the director garth davis explains, nothing is a composite.

[so imagine my delight when i found out the gorgeous song accompanying the commercial belonged to the chill out posse cinematic orchestra with a little help from montreal's patrick watson (who in my book has one of the best male voices around). taken from their somewhat overlooked release from last year, ma fleur, i'm glad a superb ad like this can reignite my interest in this lovely album.]
