I’m becoming more and more confused by technology. Sure, there are times my music gets interrupted by a phone call when walking with my headphones in, but our “phones” have mostly become everything but phones. I can’t imagine why we’d need our other electronics to become phones too. In the case of the JBL Flip, this compact speaker promises “concert sound with a built-in speakerphone.” Can I get that minus the phone?
I like the humor behind this spot though, with an impromptu office party while the boss is out. This JBL Flip commercial song that the office is dancing to is “Holding On To You” by Twenty One Pilots. The full version of the song offers an interesting blend of rap verses with the melodic pop chorus we hear in the spot. It’s pretty emphatic, a little bit frenetic, and a lot of fun, and certainly worth the concert sound, so unpause your party and download the full track above.
You are surrounding, all my surroundings
Twisting the kaleidoscope
Behind both of my eyes
