A (Not So) Silent Night from Harley-Davidson – VideoTue, 17 Dec 2013
It’s probably not conducive for sleeping in heavenly peace, but Harley-Davidson has released a Christmas-themed ad with the song “Silent Night” performed by the revving V-Twin engine of a Softail Breakout.
Titled “The Sound of the Festive Season”, the ad spot was produced by U.K agency Big Communications for Harley-Davidson Europe Middle East and Africa. According to AdWeek, the ad was conceived, sold and produced in just 72 hours.
Granted, the notes are a bit off key, but the melody is clearly recognizable. And considering the unconventional instrument, it’s more than acceptable.
