No doubt you’ll have heard the song ‘Smile’ many times before, but if you were wondering who sings it, the answer is the legendary American performer Nat King Cole.
The jazz/big band/pop/swing vocalist and musician released Smile in 1954, with the single going on to reach number 2 on the UK chart.
The song was based on an instrumental tune that featured on the soundtrack to Charlie Chaplin’s 1936 movie ‘Modern Times’ – A piece of music composed by Chaplin himself. The songs title and words were then added nearly 20 years later by the English lyricists John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons.
Tesco Mobile’s latest TV advert shows us many of the little things that can go wrong while holidaying abroad, from noisy kids on the plane and broken suitcases, to collapsing hammocks and sunburn. But apparently if you’re a Tesco Mobile customer, one thing you don’t need to worry about is a big phone bill.
This ‘Smile, you’re on Tesco Mobile’ commercial was posted to the company’s official YouTube channel on the 23rd of June, 2016.
