I have always been one of those people who sees the art in high-concept advertising. This fantastic ad
from the people at Sony falls into that category, IMHO.What really makes the spot, however, is the haunting soundtrack by Swedish folk sensation Jose Gonzalez
. His version of Heartbeats, a pop hit in Sweden, is absolutely wonderful. I have since become a huge fan of Gonzalez. (You must check out his cover of Massive Attack's Teardrop
- it is a wonderful interpretation of a wonderful song.)So you can imagine how thrilled I was to see he is appearing July 1 and 2 at the Park Theatre
on Osborne Street. Given that I live within walking distance of the Park, I snapped up a couple of tickets pronto. For the non-cottage set, I can't imagine better entertainment on Canada Day.-30-
