Mercedes GLC – Oh You Pretty Things

Mercedes Advert Song 2018 – This new TV ad for the Mercedes-Benz GLC shows examples of when the look and style of how things are designed far outweighs their functionality, unlike with Mercedes cars.

Advert Music
Song Title: Oh! You Pretty Things (David Bowie cover).
Singer/Band: MMODE.
Download From: iTunes & Amazon.

Featuring the lyrics “Oh you Pretty Things. Don’t you know you’re driving your Mamas and Papas insane”, the song playing in this ad is a cover of David Bowie’s 1971 track, which features on his fourth studio album ‘Hunky Dory’.

The version we hear in this Mercedes commercial was released for download in January, 2018 by the band MMODE: a sibling pop-rock duo from Belfast, made up of Lucy and Thomas Gaffney.

Although this ad for the Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV is already airing on UK television, the English version has yet to be uploaded to YouTube. This is why we’re currently showing the Polish version of the video.
