Who Sings The Song In The Oreo Roller Rink Ad? An 'American Idol' Runner-Up Is Behind The "Rolling Wonder" Jingle
It is a grand and glorious tradition that has been around for centuries—nay, eons: Oreo reaches out to a popular recording artist, asks the popular recording artist to record a song about Oreo cookies for a TV spot, and then plops the popular artist’s Oreo song in a TV spot. And by golly, it has happened again! In a new animated commercial for America’s number one sandwich cookie, a familiar voice sings about the glorious Nabisco confection as the cartoon characters on the screen bond while skating all over a roller rink. So who is the musician behind the song in the “Rolling Wonder” Oreo commercial? Here is a hint: his heart is a “Ghost Town.”
Here is another hint: It is the American Idol Season 8 runner-up who has gone on to be a chart-topping, Grammy-nominated recording artist. And another hint: The "Whataya Want From Me" singer had a recurring role on primetime series Glee. And one more hint: He's a vocal powerhouse who has been the frontman of Queen + Adam Lambert since 2011. Yep, the charming little pop jingle in that Oreo ad was recorded by none other than Adam Lambert.
