Canada’s GO RVing Commercial – The Music, the Actor, and More!

Before we get into this, it’s important to establish that taking an RV out for camping is a great idea whether you’re in Canada or anywhere else! In fact, I have an entire page dedicated to my camping trips in the United States. But I’m sensing that you need a little more motivation so take a look at this cinematic commercial then scroll down for more info about the ad!

The Music. This peaceful, somewhat psychedelic song is “Stay Alive” by José González. It was included on the soundtrack for the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It’s fitting that the song, the movie, and this commercial are tied together with a theme of getting outside to adventure and/or enjoy nature. Here’s the song…

The Actor. Playing the part of city man turned wild guy is actor Troy Greenwood. You can probably guess filming this long commercial was a grueling task for an actor asked to run through the wilderness, swim in frigid waters, and everything else he did but he did it well! The creators of the ad praised Troy’s work and also spoke about the locations of the shoot. You can find that info here. You can also find more about Troy’s many talents on his website or his Facebook page.

Photos. I hope that, by now, you’re fully convinced to go RVing! Maybe you don’t have to completely ditch your normal life like the guy in the commercial, but how about for a weekend? Getting into the wilderness is one of my favorite things to do even if it’s just a Saturday afternoon hike. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from camping around the U.S. You can find the full collection of my photos here. See you tomorrow!
