Have you been waiting for someone to come up with a Jamaican Bobsled Team reggae song synced with the course in Sochi, fitting the exact shape of the racetrack with all its twists and turns?
Well wait no more, because Draftfcb New York and the Jamaica Tourist Board have done just that. According to Draftfcb, "If you press play at the exact moment the Jamaican Bobsled Team starts its run down the actual racetrack in Sochi on Sunday, you'll have your very own authentic soundtrack to one of the most anticipated moments of the Winter Olympics."
The song's got a catchy groove—"To the right! To the left! It's bobsled time!"—with an appealing animated promo clip that recalls old-school video-game graphics. ("Mon" appears just once in the lyrics, in case you were wondering.)
This marks Draftfcb's second recent tuneful foray, following the Kmart/Joe Boxer "Jingle Bells" spot from the agency's Chicago office. The reggae song's cute, but that ballsy yuletide classic set an extremely high bar for inspired musical silliness. Sorry, bobsledders, I'm afraid it's all downhill from there.
