Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres starred in the new Beats Music commercial which aired during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
The commercial runs along the lines of a modernized version of Goldilocks, with Ellen portraying Goldilocks. She goes into an apartment looking to listen to music. She starts off by listening to papa bear's music which is a classic rock song. She says, “Too fast.” Mama bear's music was too slow. It was a country song. Then the teenage bear’s dubstep music was not right either.
She then used her Beats Music app on her iPhone and said, “I’m in a den and I feel like listening to pop music.”
DeGeneres then turns around to see the family of bears who have returned to their apartment. They see that she has chosen a new song to put on that was just right. The song was “Can You Do This” by Aloe Blacc. They are pleased with her song choice and instead of eating her, they dance with her.
According to Business Insider, the ad was produced by R/GA.
The commercial was ideal for every age viewer of the game. It sampled a song by famous DJ, Skrillex, for the younger crowd. There was classic rock for the older crowd as well as a taste of country music for those cowboys and cowgirls watching the big game.
DeGeneres takes center stage in the commercial by showcasing her colorful and unique dance moves to the variety of song samplings. The commercial has been receiving many views from the second that it aired during the big game all the way to now. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely check it out below.
