Bell’s new Palm Pre commercial comes complete with a quaint little ditty that has some really hard to discern lyrics. I tried looking up “cup of tea” on first listen but came back with nothing. I thought that it could be a Yael Naim song as it is a definite sound alike and Bell’s Pre ads seem to be blatant rip-offs of Apple ads (Yael Naim’s “New Soul” was featured in theMacbook Air video). It took a few repeated viewings but I was finally able to hear the phrase “sitting in the dark quite happily”. After that, I used my masterful Googling skills to find out that the song is “Coin Laundry” by Lisa Mitchell. It’s definitely a pretty little song despite its resemblance to any cliched Apples.
Here is the video that the dude in the Bell commercial pulls up on his pretty little phone (and I think that’s Johnny Flynn in the video, more on him at a later date):
Enjoy! Hope this helps the 5 people who were driven nuts by the inability to search “palm pre bell commercial” for the song title!
