Kerrygold Butter TV Ad 2016 – Singer, song and video details for Kerrygold’s new ‘The wetter the weather, the better the butter’ advert.
Artist/Singer: The Futz Butler music composition with Acantha Lang.
Having successfully tricked many of us into thinking the song featured in this ad was something originally recorded back in the 50’s or 60’s, it turns out it’s actually a new piece of music created especially for the commercial.
According to music production company The Futz Butler, they teamed up with the London-based female singer Acantha Lang to record this authentic sounding vintage RnB soundtrack for Kerrygold’s ‘Perfect Day’ TV advert.
Unfortunately the downside of this not being an existing song is that there’s probably no full length version and therefore won’t be released for download.
This 30-second commercial shows a guy cycling through the country in the pouring rain. Despite getting soaking wet, he keeps a smile on his face all the way because he knows that, as far as the cows are concerned, the wetter the weather, the better the butter.
The lyrics we hear sung in the advert go (very) roughly like this: ‘My heart belongs only, to my stormy day. Love like the wind and rain, it’s made me happy again. Oh that’s just the glory of you’.
The above ‘Perfect Day’ video was posted to the Karmarama YouTube channel on the 7th of November, 2016.
