Original Artist/Singer: Willie Nelson.
Download The Willie Nelson Version From: iTunes and Amazon.
HSBC’s new TV advert shows a rugby balls journey around the world, on its way to fulfilling its destiny of being used in a World Rugby Sevens Series match.
Passing through such locations as Vancouver, Paris, London, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Cape Town, Wellington, Sydney and Las Vegas, the ball has decided ‘This Is The Game I Want To Play’.
The song playing in this commercial is ‘On the Road Again’ which was written and recorded by the American country music singer Willie Nelson.
Although the version we hear in the ad sounds very similar to the original, I’m not actually convinced it’s Willie Nelson performing this one.
This may be either a little-known existing cover of On The Road Again, or a new version recorded especially for this HSBC ad campaign. We’ll update this page with further details if and when they’re released.
The above 60-second video was uploaded to the official HSBC YouTube channel on the 25th of January, 2017 and should begin airing on TV any day now.
