If you have been watching the NBA playoffs as feverishly as I have, the generous people at TNT have been bombarding you with this Sprite commercial about the local park kids jumping into the court which magically turns into a pool. The ending image is the one shown above.
The snipet of the song that is played during this commercial is very hooky and I was curious in finding the song and the person/group who played it. After a quick 2 minutes of googling, I found this post from Duncan's TV Ad Land dated November 2005 which not only detailed the name (Falling Away) and origins of the song (it was made by a sound house), but listed the lyrics to the song, a link to a Quicktime version of the commercial and a detailed list to get the free MP3 of the song.
The one problem - you have to go through about 100+ useless posts from idiots. And since this blog is not only a wealth of entertainment value but also a public service forum, here's the list to score the free swag:
- Go to the German Sprite Website (beware - the language is in German)
- Click on the words Sound & Download
- Click on the words MP3 Download
- Enter Makari in blank field then click Go
- Click the checkbox for the version that you want (Original, Go Disco, Chill Out, Elektro Pop, or Urban Beat version) and click on the words MP3 Herunterladen
