This new black and white advert for clothing retail website M&Co recently began airing during UK TV ad breaks to promote the companies new Autumn and Winter collections.
Providing the soundtrack to this campaign are American all-girl pop rock band The Bangles, with one of their biggest 80’s hits ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’.
Released in 1986, the song went on to top the charts in many countries around the world, including America, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Canada and Australia. Here in Britain though, Walk Like an Egyptian could only peak at number 3 on the singles chart.
Two of The Bangles other greatest hits that you may recognise were another of 1986’s classics ‘Manic Monday’ and of course the 1989 ballad ‘Eternal Flame’.
The above 40-second video was posted to the official M&Co YouTube channel on the 14th of October, 2016 and is even viewable in 4K UHD resolution.
The combination of having not previously heard of this fashion retailer and the way the sites domain name is displayed on screen all in capital letters, made me initially think the company was called Mandco. However, at the end of the ad it became clear their name is in fact M&Co.
