the latest CLOSE UP BUBBLE TV commercial is too cute and caught the attention of many through the enchanting intro of COME CLOSER, a track performed by a still unknown artist (it’s not IKLAN because IKLAN means ADVERTISEMENT in indonesian language) and was later remade by a popular and talented Filipino musician, RICO BLANCO. blanco’s version has just been officially released for radio plays and i’m sure a lot of fans are looking forward to a music video of it.
anyway, here’s a youtube video of the advertisement i’m talking about:
UPDATE UPDATE for everyone’s peace of mind:
it was AUGUST 2008 when the indian version of the CLOSEUP BUBBLE COMMERCIAL was released. same exact concept and setting (in bangkok) as what is being shown here in the PHILIPPINES. but the music is written by a female indiepop singer named SONA MAHAPATRA and the song is entitled PAAS AAO NA (Come Closer Now). this single will be included in her upcoming album this year 2009, entitled “MUMBAI”.
if UNILEVER (close-up manufacturer) will come up with a PHILIPPINE VERSION of this commercial with RICO BLANCO singing in the background, i have no idea! hindi ko po alam. i THINK that artists who were commissioned by unilever were asked to come up with their own words or LYRICS for the same MELODY which is an indian original. maganda rin ung female version. watch and listen:
i’m sharing a full MP3 download of the CLOSE UP BUBBLE SONG in ENGLISH (not by rico yet) so if you want it, simply SUBSCRIBE TO EYCEE via EMAIL and you’ll receive the track. i’m sending it ASAP. enjoy!
