Vodafone – Sad faces

Brand: Vodafone
Campaign: Sad faces
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

For this campaign we were asked to create an 80s-inspired ballad that would boost the comic side of the "sad faces". And we think the tune does sound like a classic. Some day we should dust off all these tracks and turn them into a real song, with guitar solo's and the whole shebang.

Vodafone – Sad faces

Superbock – 90th anniversary

Brand: Superbock
Campaign: 90th anniversary
Agency: PG&Cia

An impressive and impeccably produced campaign. Celebrating their 90th anniversary, Superbock goes over the most relevant events of 20th century Portugal, simultanously telling the brand's history from its origins up to today.

ING – Know how to fly

Brand: ING
Campaign: Know how to fly
Agency: Sra Rushmore

This campaign features two masterpieces: the poem “Espantapájaros” ("Scarecrow") by Oliverio Girondo and the song “Cry Baby” by Janis Joplin, in its original, 1971 version.
We're flying over the beautiful city of Montevideo, fuelled by Janis Joplin's voice, and inspired by Girondo's liberating verses.

Vodafone – HBO

Brand: Vodafone
Campaign: Vodafone HBO
Agency: Sra.Rushmore

When Tony Soprano, Daenerys Stormborn, Nucky Thompson, Carrie Bradshaw and a bunch of dragons get together in a TV ad, it would be safe to say the ad rocks bells. We were in charge of the music, and we're pretty pleased to have participated in this campaign.

Bankia – On Account

Brand: Bankia
Campaign: On Account
Agency: CLV

Great song (The Animals' "House Of The Rising Sun") for a great campaign reminding us how funny internet can be, and how much we dislike bank charges.

Bankia – On Account

Vodafone – One (Alan Bean)

Brand: Vodafone
Campaign: One - Alan Bean
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

Alan Bean, pilot on the Apollo XII lunar mission, was the fourth person to set foot on the moon, on 19 November 1969. Now, he is a painter, enjoying life on his ranch in Houston, Texas. Finding out that behind the character is an even nicer person makes our work all the more gratifying. We also wrote and recorded the original music for the ad. The result, in our humble opinion, is quite fantastic!

Vodafone – One (Alan Bean)

Dentix – The new dentistry

Brand: Dentix
Campaign: The new dentistry
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

"Step Out" by José Gonzalez, taken from the original soundtrack to The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty.

Dentix – The new dentistry

Vodafone – Owners

Brand: Vodafone
Campaign: Owners
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

The challenge was to inject "Don't Worry Be Happy" with a generous dose of funk, and make it sound tight. With Soul Vigilantes at the controls and the support of a hi-octane brass section, the result is funkier than James Brown's socks!

Vodafone – Owners

Multiópticas – Get Out

Brand: Multiópticas
Campaign: Get out
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

James T Horn recorded this fantastic “Glory Bound Train” back in 1971 for NYC's MO DO Records.
It was one of the few things he did during his career, but this tune, only available on vinyl (you won't find it on any digital platform), is a delicious rarity we've been able to licence for this cheeky ad.

Multiópticas – Sal

Reale Seguros – Wise people

Brand: Reale Seguros
Campaign: Sabios
Agency: Fish

Another original song by the great Jose Álvarez for Lovemonk, this time featuring a choir formed by a bunch of extremely nice kids.

Reale Seguros – Wise people

ING / UNICEF - Keep On Dancing

An original Lovemonk track to celebrate this beautiful campaign by ING and Unicef. Surely making sure that children can go to school is reason enough to start dancing.

La Primitiva – Our Dreams Aren't Cheap

Brand: La Primitiva
Campaign: Our Dreams Aren't Cheap
Agency: Publicis

Publishing and phonographic rights mamagement for "You Are My Destiny" in its original version by Paul Anka. Without a doubt, an excellent choice by the creative team.

Dentix – La nueva odontología

Marca: Dentix
Campaña: La nueva odontología
Agencia: Sra. Rushmore

Había que buscar una canción para esta nueva campaña y esta emocionante pieza de José González nos pareció un acierto. Compuesta y grabada originalmente para la banda sonora de La vida secreta de Walter Mitty, es una fantástica elección.

Dentix – La nueva odontología

Dodot – Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Brand: Dodot
Campaign: Can't Take My Eyes Off You
Agency: Tapsa

One of our most accomplished covers, for which we received much praise: "Can't Take My Eyes Off You". Most of the time one can come up with a cover that simply does the job, but the comparison to the original is always cruel. We always accept the challenge humility.

Dodot – The Best Hygiene Towels
Dodot – I love you baby

Mahou – It Tastes Good To Be Mahou

Brand: Mahou
Campaign: It Tastes Good To Be Mahou

Carrefour – Steps

Brand: Carrefour
Campaign: Pasos

For their new campaigns, Carrefour once again go for a fresh sound and indie music. This sparkling tune by Ra Ra Riot works like a charm. It's called 'Absolutely', and, depending on who you ask, its genre is 'baroque pop'. Believe!

Carrefour – Steps

ING – Twyp Cash

Brand: ING
Campaign: Twyp Cash
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

ING presented a new product, and they needed a worldwide hit. The track chosen was Culture Club's 'Karma Chameleon', and the result is as fun as it is effective.

Mahou – Mixta Revoluxion #lanochenoesseria

Brand: Mahou San Miguel
Campaign: Mixta Revoluxion
Agency: El Ruso de Rocky

It seems to be quite hard to confess one is into reggaeton, but the truth is, this is the sound of the streets in Spain today and, why deny it, there are some pretty good tunes out there. For this Mixta campaign we had a few good laughs and licensed four bangers with that dem bow way way up there.

Mahou – Mixta Revoluxion #lanochenoesseria (Vaina Loca)
Mahou – Mixta Revoluxion #lanochenoesseria (Picky)
Mahou – Mixta Revoluxion #lanochenoesseria (El serrucho)
Mahou – Mixta Revoluxion #lanochenoesseria (Papi Chulo)

Multiópticas – Get Out / Real Reality

Brand: Multiópticas
Campaign: Mo – Sal/Realidad real
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

OK, yes, reggaeton is alright, but so is Soul. Mucho. Here we have two Multiópticas campaigns with a Soul soundtrack. That's Soul with a capital S.

For the first one we've had to pull a lot of strings. 'Glory Bound Train' is an incredible tune from the late 60s, and our mission was to license it. It was not available on anything other than some obscure 7" singles that were changing hands for considerable amounts of money, and there was no way to get in touch with the rights holders. In the end it was our friends from Daptone Records who put us on the trail of the son of the original label owner, who also plays drums on the track. Finally, as a result of this license, the song is now available on all the major download and streaming platforms. Woohoo!

And for the next one, we didn't slow down, either – we recorded a cover version with female vocals of a true dancefloor anthem, the great Allen Toussaint's 'Hand Clapping Song'. Clapyourhandssayyeah!

Multiópticas – Get Out (Glory Bound Train)

CEAR – Help The Refugee

Brand: CEAR
Campaign: Help the refugee
Agency: J Walter Thompson

We're sympathetic to the wonderful work NGO CEAR does to help war refugees. In this case, we want to thank Slavoj Zizek for his generous contribution to this project, giving up the rights over one of his most lucid texts, as well as lending his voice to this so necessary cause. Every bit of help is welcome in cases such as this one. Our best wishes to CEAR and our gratitude to Zizek.

CEAR – Help The Refugee

Aquarius – The incredible feeling of getting excited

Brand: Aquarius
Campaign: The incredible feeling of getting excited
Agency: Sra. Rushmore

For this ad, Aquarius needed a truly glorious score, and who better a man for the job than Trevor Jones, composer of original soundtracks for such memorable films as "The Last Of The Mohicans", "Life of Brian", and "Dark Cristal", among many others. Recorded in Studio 1 of Abbey Road with the London Symphony Orchestra, it will be hard to find more talent together in one single space!

Aquarius – The incredible feeling of getting excited (Trevor Jones)

Mahou – 2016

Brand: Mahou
Campaign: 2016
Agency: El Ruso de Rocky

Mahou did it again: telling a lovely story featuring heaps of well-known Spanish faces, and an epic tune by the legendary Extremoduro.
