Nissan ‘Now Sales Event’ Commercial – What’s the Song?
As Nissan rolls out a new ‘Nissan Now Sales Event’ ad campaign, its soundtrack is provided by the Alan Parsons Project.
‘Sirius,’ an instrumental from the band’s 1982 album ‘The Eye In The Sky’ can be heard pulsing in the background as the “all-new Altima, Pathfinder, and Sentras” are displayed. Much of the Parsons Project’s music lends itself to background ambiance of ads and films, in fact ‘Sirius’ has made more than a few appearances on TV.
The haunting and dramatic instrumental has been used on the television show ‘Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius’ and the movie ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.’ In addition, it has been featured as the intro music for various sporting teams over the years, including perhaps most famously the NBA’s Chicago Bulls.
