Sonos Playbar Commercial – What’s the Song?
A commercial for the new Sonos Playbar features not only a very familiar tune, but a familiar film scene as well. It shouldn’t take the average rock fan too long to note that Queen‘s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is blasting out as the soundtrack, but for your eyes, they have included the famous scene from the 1992 movie ‘Wayne’s World’ where the carload of misfits are bopping along to the Queen classic.
A Top 10 U.S. hit in both 1975 and 1992, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was featured on a commercial last year for the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. It was originally released on Queen’s ‘A Night at the Opera’ album.
Playbar’s nine-speaker design is being touted as the ultimate in wireless high fidelity audio for games and movies via your high-definition television. What better track to use than one of the most daring and complex songs ever made? All this state-of-the-art, high-def jargon and they use a 38-year old song to promote it! It certainly says something about the staying power of this Queen masterpiece!
