Set to some uplifting gospel music, Citroën promotes their new C4 and ë-C4 100% electric family cars in this ‘Happy Days’ 2021 TV advert, which takes us from 1950 all the way up to the present day.
This 60-second commercial for the Citroen C4 range offers technology and comfort in one, now with a 5-year warranty, describing the C4 as “The French car that speaks your language”. Happy days.
I’m sure many petrol heads out there will be spotting and naming all the old Citroen cars parked in the background of this film, including the original Citroën Ami and the Citroën BX. Or am I mistaken? One thing I am sure about is the soundtrack:
Song Title: Oh Happy Day (cover).
Original Singers: Edwin Hawkins Singers.
Album: Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord.

The music playing in this 2021 Citroen C4 advert is a song called ‘Oh Happy Day’ that’s been covered as production music specifically for the ad.
Originally released in 1968 by American vocal group The Edwin Hawkins Singers, Oh Happy Day is a gospel arrangement of an 18th-century hymn by clergyman Philip Doddridge.
