Five Classic Car Commercials That Are Better When Synced with Velcro Lewis Group
BY: Courtney Ryan | Mar 12, 2014
Velcro Lewis Group’s brand of psych boogie is well-suited for the Empty Bottle’s Good Vybes Fest. But the band’s songs also sync up perfectly with these classic car commercials. Forget about Dark Side of the Rainbow. We found these suspiciously delightful synchronicities by hitting play (and mute) on a few vintage car commercials while listening to Velcro Lewis Group’s high-octane take on psychedelic rock. 1. “Inside My Cloud” + Why? If a muscle car’s going to fly, it needs a proper soaring jam. 2. “Eagle Momma” + Why? Because Aretha Franklin deserves better than a Chevrolet jingle. 3. “Bernadette” + Why? The eponymous Bernadette’s distaste for the narrator mimics Barbie’s unexpected-but-not-really rejection of Ken for G.I. Joe. 4. “They're Having a Party” + Why? Because this Ford showroom from 1966 could use a little more psychedelia. 5. “Fall to Pieces” + Why? The act of racing a white convertible through the desert is even better when accompanied by fuzzed-out guitar lines. Velcro Lewis Group plays the Good Vybes Fest at the Empty Bottle (1035 N. Western Ave.) on Saturday, March 22, at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here. Photo courtesy of Velcro Lewis Group
