Subject: RE: Appropriate folk tunes for TV ads
EGods no! Do not even say folk song and TV advert in the same sentence.
Except maybe the Gypsy Rover song... That will certainly get me to shut the idiot box off. It makes my ears bleed.
There is a black and white film of old man shearing sheep. The background music (gaelic I think) is a female singing lovely lilting, makes me tingle. Then it devolves into a should have gone to SpecSavers ad. The old sheepshearer has blindly sheared his dog.
Pity! I thought it was a trailer for some film. I was bitterly disappointed.
