Scenes you missed in Olivia Rodrigo’s “Driver’s License”

If you’ve been to my site before, you probably know I like writing about music videos whether it’s one from Taylor Swift, Luke Combs, Camila Cabello, or any others on my music video page. Today’s post is about a new video from newcomer Olivia Rodrigo. Take a look…

There are two montages including very quick clips flashing by in a blur in this music video. So quick, in fact, each montage is only half a second! If you missed the images in each montage, I got you covered. First up is the set of 16 images appearing at timecode 2:34.

The next montage at timecode 3:21 includes some clips from the first montage, along with the following images:

And for more from the video shoot, here’s a behind the scenes look:

The actors in RaeLynn’s “Me About Me” music video, and more!

RaeLynn debuted a beautiful, and dare I say “angelic,” music video in December for her song “Me About Me.” The title makes more sense when you listen to the lyrics and check out the video πŸ™‚

The actor playing the villainous boyfriend is actor/model Michael Mau (height 6’2″, shoe size 12.5 US). He had a few funny comments on his role in the video. First was a comment he added to the YouTube clip of the music video:

“Honored to be a part of this video. And if y’all are wondering, she dumped me. I mean she dumped him.”

And then another from his website:

“When my son saw the video, he said, ‘Dad, she’s young enough to be your granddaughter.'”

The granddaughter girlfriend is actress/model Jacqueline Sullivan. According to her bio, she stands at 5′ 10.5″ and wears a women’s size 9.5 shoe. She’s represented by Nashville-based AMAX Talent/Creative (as is Michael Mau).

The music video was shot by Running Bear Films somewhere near Watertown, TN, which is about an hour east of downtown Nashville. This is based on the clip of their photos laying on top of a theater advertisement listing Watertown, TN as a location.

The Bible she picks up after her boyfriend spills beer on it says, “With Deepest Sympathy, Green Valley Care Center” …a nursing home facility in Indiana.

Song in the Holiday Mercedes-Benz Commercial

You may have seen this Mercedes commercial recently featuring a stuffed animal finding a new home (a MUCH warmer home, as the ad implies) with a family in a Mercedes SUV. The ad is titled, “Plushie” and you can watch it here:

Voiceover for this ad is performed by actor Jon Hamm.

The song used in the ad is called “Your Sweet Heart” by Elijah Aaron. From Elijah’s website:

“All music composed, performed, produced, mixed and mastered by Elijah Aaron Palnik.”

For this ad, though, Mercedes brought in a woman to sing the lyrics, which are as follows:

The world is much bigger now you’re gone 
I hear your voice in every song 
Feeling like a shadow in a world I don’t belong 
Then your sweet love came along 

Now you’re miles of time ahead 
Your voice still echoes in my head 
Feeling like a shadow in a world I don’t belong 
Then your sweet heart came along 

Where would I be had I not met you 
How would my days continue on 
Who would I be had I not found you 

I guess it I had it all wrong 
Till your sweet heart came along

Here is Elijah performing this beautiful song.

Back to the MB commercial, I think the shorter version doesn’t quite give you the warm feeling that the original 60-second version does. Take a look at the longer version here:

Break-up Songs for 2021

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to put together a list of break-up songs! What have I been doing with my time? Wasting it, that’s what! There are a million lists of this type out there, so I’m not going to copy all the common break-up songs. I’ll just stick with songs that I like, or that are currently on any of my Spotify playlists. Let me know what you think about these songs in the comments below πŸ™‚

Christina Perri “Jar of Hearts” with a memorable line, “…who do you think you are?”

This next one isn’t exactly a break-up song but I love the line, “The sun still rises, even through the rain.”

The Head and the Heart “Another Story”

One of my favorite songs during my middle school years, here’s “The King of Wishful Thinking” Go West. “I refuse to give into my blues.”

“Karma Police” Radiohead …haunting, memorable, and simply great. “This is what you get when you mess with us.”

“So Cruel” U2 …perhaps my favorite song of 2020, and maybe in my top 5 all time. This one stopped me in my tracks, and I haven’t actually started up again yet from it. “…To stay with you, I’d be a fool.”

“Guiding Light” Muse …I feel such remorse in this song. “I can’t hurt you anymore…” plus the guitar solo is more to me than the lyrics of so many other songs.

“Stars” Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. “I can’t look at the stars. They make me wonder where you are.”

Allstate Island Commercial: The Islands, the Truck, the Tea Kettle, and the Hound!

**Note: if you’re looking for more info about the teapot in this ad, click here**

If you’ve seen the Allstate commercial with a guy driving around a small island and then wanted to book a trip there, this post is going to help you out! First of all, though, I’m glad you found my site. I do research on TV ads, but I also write about music, dating, and my dogs! (click those links to go there)

OK, back to the ad… I’m not the only one to write about this commercial and I didn’t discover the islands on my own. Check here for my source on which island, or islands, this ad was filmed. A trip to this little group of islands will cost you somewhere in the ballpark of $5,000 USD with travel and hotel on mainland Norway. A 5-night stay at one of the hotels on the small island, the Ona Havstuer, will cost you around 11,000 NOK (Norwegian Krone), which converts to roughly $1,250 (approx. $250/ night). Getting back to the Allstate ad… here is more info:

Ad Title: “Island”

Islands: Ona and Husoy, both in Norway

Aerial still image taken from Allstate Ad
image from Google maps, where you can see the same lighthouse from the commercial

Vehicle: mid 1990s Land Rover Defender

Dog: Basset Hound (update: she is a Basset Artesian Normand named Eli, check more in the comments below)

Song and Band: “Morning Song” Babe Rainbow
