Why the AO is using the same theme song 2 years in a row......
It's really been 3 years if you count 2011. I think it's about time for a change.
Oh my...I didn't even realize that.
How could they miss Gangnam Style?!!
What happened to the commercial where they used to say 'Melbourne' at the end. I liked that one, used to practice my Aussie accent.
I wanna noar
What theme song is this? I've been hearing Diamonds in the background, a song I personally despise. Or are you talking about ESPN? I get Sky in NZ.
If that's the Rihanna song you're talking about, she sings the word "Diamonds" 40 times which could be a contributing factor as to why you hate it.
Who is the brunett model in the commercial?
Who cares? Everyone involved in the production of that commercial can go to hell.
I will never go to melbourne as long as they keep playing that song!
Actually I think it is very haunting. The song is "A Heart Divided" by Holly Throsby
Yeah it haunts my nightmares. I think they're trying to make it permeate our brains so we will never forget it.
It has now become one of the more annoying musical moments of my life. Every time I hear it I feel like punching a small child.
Seriously - one would think making a new promo at least every other year wouldn't be that hard. This one has always been painful. The one before it from a few years ago was at least reasonable. Watching some lady wipe milk or whatever it is off her lip with dirge-like background music hardly encourages me to go someplace that I'm sure is really neat.
Props to ESPN on their commerical though. Love AC/DC!
Is it really the Oz Open's theme song? I got the impression is was just the Melbourne tourism board. Same font style on the back of the court, so I'm sure they all work together.
In either case, it's a creative ad from a cinematography standpoint. But the music's not designed to live forever.
