Skrillex and Diplo’s ‘Dirty Vibe’ soundtracks genius UK phone service ad [Watch]
Outside of Super Bowl Sunday, it’s tough to find ads rousing enough to watch all the way through.
One way to break through the clutter? For brands trying to reach dance music disciples, using a classic collab from Skrillex and Diplo is always a surefire bet. Hence, a thunderous round of applaud to these UK ad folks for making this latest TV commercial 130% more bearable with “Dirty Vibe” off Skrillex’s 2015 Recess LP–and for pairing it with an ad concept thoughtful enough to tickle the synapses a bit.
The two-and-a-half-minute bit flash-cuts to different outlandishly executed scenes demonstrating that yes, phones are taking over, but with the same stroke of the pen (figuratively speaking, of course) they have the power to better our lives, too. The outrageous montage is book-ended by high octane snippets of “Dirty Vibe” that slot in perfectly. In summation: phones aren’t all malice and mayhem, and the Skrillex hype train is still the best ride around.
