What's The Song In The Nissan Altima Weekend Contest Ad Campaign? Get Ready To Hum This Tune For The Next "Five Hours"
Thanks to that new Nissan Altima ad campaign, the same song has been stuck in my head for over a week. (Don't get me wrong, I legitimately dig the song. I just could use a change of pace. That's all.) There are multiple iterations of the TV spot, but no matter who might be sitting in the backseat of that sedan (A flustered chicken! A raccoon guarding the helmet of Achilles! A person in a bulldog costume holding a neon sign! Retired NFL player Desmond Howard!), the music does not change. Every version of the ad is soundtracked by the same pulsating, synth-laden EDM tune. And that is the tune that has set up shop in my brain. And I don't think it plans on leaving anytime soon. The song in the Altima Weekend Contest TV spot/the song I can't stop humming is “Five Hours” by Los Angeles-based DJ Deorro.
Deorro released "Five Hours" as a single in 2014, and the track climbed to the top of the Billboard Dance Radio & Mixshow Chart. In 2015, Deorro released “Five More Hours,” a remix of “Five Hours” featuring vocals by Chris Brown. Both versions are great, worth a listen, crazy catchy, et cetera.
And now for your listening pleasure, here's the original track:
Oh, but that's not all! Here's the music video for the remix:
Ah, there's no use fighting it. "Five Hours" will probably be in my brain forever. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
