GoPro Commercial Music 2016 – Band and song information for GoPro ‘Be A Hero’ Big Game ad, promoting the $199.99 HERO4 Session camera. #BEAHERO
Song Name: Blitzkrieg Bop.
Download the full track from: Amazon & iTunes.
Featuring the lyrics ‘Hey! Ho! Let’s go!’, the song used in GoPro’s 2016 big game commercial is called ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’ – The 1976 debut single from American punk rock band Ramones.
A great fast-paced power chord workout for beginner and intermediate guitarists, the track was placed in 92nd position on Rolling Stone magazines list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
Viewers in the UK may also recognise Blitzkrieg Bop from another TV advert, this time for online retailer AO.com. Do you see what they did there?
GoPro’s Super Bowl 50 commercial, which premiered on the companies YouTube channel on February 5, showcases some of the best footage captured by users of the brands action cameras. From skiing, to bungee jumping, to rock climbing, with some football thrown in for good measure, the ad gives customers a small taste of what can be done with this versatile piece of kit.
With the company not currently doing too well financially, lets hope this big game campaign for the $199.99 HERO4 Session can give GoPro a big boost in 2016.
