Netflix Commercial Music 2016 – Singer, song and lyrics information for the streaming services new ‘500 Hours’ Binge For Love ad.

Original Song Name: I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles).

Artist/Singers: The Proclaimers.

Download the original version from: iTunes & Amazon.

Netflix’s new romantically themed ad features a parody cover of The Proclaimers 1988 song ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’.

The lyrics and arrangement to this binge-watch inspired version were written and performed by indie rock singer Ben Kweller.

Created for Netflix, the Austin-based musician has replaced the words ‘But I would walk five-hundred miles. And I would walk five-hundred more. Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles to fall down at your door.’ with ‘Cause I would watch five-hundred hours. Yeah I would watch five-hundred more. Just to be the man who watched a thousand hours of shows that you adore.’

The Netflix commercial, which was added to the companies US & Canada YouTube channel on February 4, 2016, shows a guy binge watching Orange is the New Black to impress a girl he likes.

After overhearing Erin saying OITNB is her favorite show, the ads star quickly begins watching the series during every spare moment. Once fully up-to-date on the Netflix comedy-drama, he races back to tell Erin he loves the season 3 finale, only for her to say she hasn’t even seen it yet.

I guess this lady isn’t as big an Orange is the New Black fan as she first made out. Well Netflix are hardly gonna blurt out any major spoilers to one of their top shows now are they?
