Leonard Cohen’s Music In TV Commercials
Hermitage Prisoner aka Roman Gavrilin has put together a wondrous collection of TV ads that employ Leonard Cohen’s music. The products being hawked are most often the music itself (Leonard Cohen albums, concerts, collections, …), but there are also ads promoting the Canadian Cinema and the Canadian Cancer Society, a shocking anti-smoking ad, an ad for an FM radio station, etc.
Both of the videos embedded below feature Leonard Cohen’s “I’m Your Man” as the soundtrack. The first is a conventional promotion for a cologne emphasizing its masculinity. The second is a less conventional, very interesting ad put on by Petland Argentina.
