Mad World

Tuesday, November 14 by Dan Lo

Full marks to whoever was in charge of the bgmusic for this ad, definitely as perfect an example as any of music's unmatched ability to dominate mood. The ad wisely refrains from employing the bastard child of death metal and electronica, and instead lets Michael Andrews' solemn cover of "Mad World" expose the weary soul of a war-hardened soldier. It's quite possibly the most unlikely of pairings, yet it's perfect... or maybe thus, it's perfect. The fitting lyrics don't hurt either.

Yeah, this song is growing on me a lot. Now I really want to watch Donnie Darko.
