Music and band details for Lotto’s Olympic Games themed ‘I Am Team GB’ TV and YouTube commercial. #IAmTeamGB
In a change of theme to their usual ‘Please Not Them’ campaign, The National Lottery’s latest TV ad informs its players that they’re all part of Team GB. As a way of reminding us just how big a part the Lottery plays in funding Britain’s Olympians, the CGI video shows tickets flying out from peoples homes to transform regular athletes into Team GB competitors.
Providing the soundtrack to the advert are Manchester band James, with their recent single ‘Nothing But Love’. Released in March, 2016, the track is taken from James’ 14th studio album ‘Girl at the End of the World’.
Despite having released many successful albums and singles over the years, you’ll probably recognise James best for their number 2 UK hit ‘Sit Down’, which was first released back in 1989.
The above #IAmTeamGB ad was uploaded to the official National Lottery YouTube page on the 21st of July, 2016, two weeks ahead of the Rio Olympics which run from the 5th to the 21st of August. The same song and CGI animation theme is now also being used in ITV’s I Am Team GB trailer for their ‘Nation’s Biggest ever Sports Day’:
