Business Insider reported that Facebook launched three TV ads in the U.K., which focus more on promoting the social network’s brand than on specific products.

According to Business Insider, the ads feature British narrators, and they follow the stories of different friendships, with instrumental versions of these songs making up the soundtracks:

  • “Umbrella,” Rihanna
  • “Close to Me,” The Cure
  • “Like a Prayer,” Madonna
