The Chevy Sonic commercial, shown above, features "We are Young" by the band Fun. This is the perfect anthem for all of the stunt fun shown by a Chevy Sonic car. "We are Young" is a top 15 alternative songs hit and has also been featured on the TV show Glee. For me, I had never heard of the band Fun before seeing the commercial and after viewing it on TV, I had to download the album and listen to it from beginning to end. It was a good musical choice for Chevy, for the band is reputable and the entire album is a great one.
For an artist, the more exposure their song receives the better. For a company, if they feature an artist that many viewers like, then the possibility of their product or message being received is exponentially greater. The relationship between corporation and artist is beneficial between both parties with the release of a TV commercial.
