Neon Trees – “Everybody Talks” Video/Buick Commercial

If you’ve been watching this year’s March Madness on CBS, TBS, truTV, and TNT, then you’ve probably seen the commercial in the first video below. This is a commercial for the new Buick Verano, which is some type of luxury sedan from General Motors, but I don’t really know much about it. What I do know, though, is that for some reason I really enjoy this commercial. It’s quick – take a look:

Have you ever watched a commercial and just thought, “Ha! I like that!” Well, that was my response to that commercial. Whoever put that 30 second spot together really did a good job. One of the things that I like about the commercial is the use of the Neon Trees as the band that performs in the last part of the spot. In fact, I did some Googling and it turns out that the Neon Trees actually recorded a performance of that entire song – Everybody Talks – while sitting in that tour bus. Sure, the song is very likely lip synched (there’s no drum set for the drummer to play inside the tour bus!), but it’s still a pretty impressive feat. Take a look at the full video (which is hidden from people if you search for it on YouTube, but fully available to watch if you have the link… like I do):

Pretty cool, huh? Anyway, turns out that the Neon Trees will be putting out a new album in April. I’ll definitely check it out and see if it’s worth purchasing and if you like alternative rock, then I encourage you to do the same. Enjoy!
