OK Go Makes Music In A Chevy

Indie rock and the Super Bowl? Thanks to Chevy and Goodby Silverstein & Partners, they do indeed mix.

OK Go set up over 1000 instruments spread out over two miles of desert near Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of “Needing/Getting,” singing as they played the instrument array with the car.

“Car advertising, so long a well-polished mirror of contemporaneous trends in America, adjusts to suit the changing times,” writes Car and Driver.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
