Starbucks Commercial Song, Freelance Whales [Bands + Brands]

by oz on March 30, 2011

The new Starbucks commercial that touts coffee “handcrafted for you” features the song “Generator 1st Floor” by Freelance Whales. Every time I drink my Starbucks coffee, I will now think of where it all began – in a burlap sack, embroidered with my name on it, draped over the shoulders of a sweaty Columbian man somewhere.

This song is slowly becoming linked with that Train song and Holiday by Vampire Weekend. Its on so many commercials.

Each time I hear this tune, it gives me goosebumps…love that banjo and harmony…

I’ve never seen this before. What a great commercial! I wish it would’ve aired more.
