Continuing their tradition of odd commercials (read Matt’s write up here), this Cosmopolitan Hotel commercial is no different. Some stuff happens, unimportant stuff, but then at 30 seconds, this is where the fun begins. A bunch of tiny white puppies descend the stairs, at 32 seconds the door to an elevator opens and a slew of kittens and bunnies appear, at 42 seconds an attractive lady gets her model on with a bunch of chicks (the animal, not more ladies), at 44 a woman leaves the room holding a baby bunny, at 46 baby ducks walk past a pool and at 47 a fawn gives you the a big ole-doe eyed look. I do not care about anything else in this commercial because that breakdown right there, is everything important. Their tagline is “the right amount of wrong,” however I highly disagree, if all these tiny adorable animals are in my hotel then it’s the right kind of right. The Cosmopolitan hotel wants you to know that no animals were harmed during this commercial and they all left unscathed. I hope they also all left fully petted.
The song is Spread Your Love by the west coast rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. I would love to tell you more about this band, however I am still distracted by all these tiny adorable animals. If you like this bands jams, they will be touring this May, so check out their schedule to see if they will be in a city near you. Taking their name from Marlon Brando’s motorcycle gang in the 1953 film The Wild One, B.R.M.C. band has been together since 1998 when I was but a Junior in high school. They have gone to not only make music together but also to be involved in some awesome drama such as breaking a dance floor in Leeds and refusing to sign an inflatable penis. Now come on boys… how many chances are you going to get to do that? A lot? OK, fair enough.
I have to go now. I need to spread my love all over those animals. Wait, that sounds gross. That’s not what I meant. Get your mind out of the gutter kids.
Spread your love like a fever
And don’t you ever come down
