Video: "Electric Car" by They Might Be Giants

Some Friday fun...

Someone's going to lock up the market for pirated soundtracks for EV videos.

You know, after listening to that song a couple of times, the band will have to forgive me for having the feeling that they made it specifically to sell as TV commercial song.

For Honda. When it eventually sells an (another) electric car.

It's got the same airy, poppy style (not to mention the cute animals) as the one Honda did with Garrison Keillor as a kind of rebranding campaign for diesel engines in the UK:

It's certainly a cute song, I like it a lot, as well as my kids. If it were written with the intent of being used for a commercial, I don't know if that's such a bad thing. I certainly think it's a better idea than, say, Buick buying the rights to "Light My Fire" by the Doors to make a car jingle out of.....
Thanks for posting it!

Very enjoyable videos- pretty much takes the 'sharp edges" off of the local transportation problems here in CA. with all the stubborn seriousness recently! Thanks for that calming video.
