Welcome to Out of the Wilderness. Since you’re here for the AirBnB ad, you might be curious about the background info of other ads, as well. For commercials featuring well-known actors and actresses, hit songs (or deeper tracks that aren’t as well-known), click on the Popular Popular TV Ads page and snoop around.
AirBnB’s family of monsters has quite a time in this ad. Plus, of course, a fitting song to go along with their adventures. Watch and listen to the extended version, then scroll down for more info…
The song used as the soundtrack for this commercial is “Beautiful Strangers” by Kevin Morby. Check out the full track below.
Dogs. In the ad, the hairy guests grab a record (Kevin Morby’s, conveniently), and behind that record is another album. It reads “Nelson Because They Can”.
This is their real album cover, although this record doesn’t include their most famous hit, “Can’t Live Without Your Love and Affection.”
The movie. The family is seen watching a movie, which is The Iron Giant.
Do you like this ad? Does the song go along well with the theme of strangers staying in someone’s home for a vacation? Chime in below and thanks for stopping by!
