    What's up everyone?

    So, some music i composed is going to be used in a commercial. Two commercials actually! one for Pizza Hut and one for Swiffer.

    As some of you talked to me know. I'm a sound designer and also a musician for fun. I started composing again and entering my music at events over at UCLA where i also attend. For whatever reason my music was picked for these 2 commercials. icon_lol.gif

    I'll let y'all know when it's going to air. I'm pretty excited about this! my long gone dreams of being the next Bruce Springsteen or Stevie Wonder will never happen. But having your music in commercials isn't too bad!

    Thanks man! i appreciate it. I used to literally dream of either being the next Bruce Springsteen or Prince. There was also that dream of being a kickboxer but that went away lol.

    I'm hoping to get my music in more commercials in the future icon_biggrin.gif

    This is quite an accomplishment! Congrats. Breaking into the business is not an easy thing to do. I know, my partner's on the vid side. You must be very good!

    I worked sound on a Pizza hut commercial a few months ago actually. But apparently it was ''banned'' from TV icon_lol.gif cause it made a white house joke. They actually deleted it from the PH youtube page as well!

    Some guy uploaded half of the commercial though. [url][/url]

    Well, it's gotta be better than how my ad agency butchered my catchy Dimension Shampoo jingle. I wrote it as a summer intern and it tied in with my "turning heads everywhere into great heads of hair" concept by showing only the backs of women's heads as they jogged, bopped about wearing Walkmens, clapped, etc. as men rubbernecked (turned heads) until finally, one woman reveals her face as she whips her hair about (turns head!) and holds up the product. The creative director loved the tie-in and the tease; I went back to college and a horndog ex-colleague wrecked it with his cliche sex sells concept, pitching a cheesy women's hockey team shower. The only thing worse than their oversynthesized, overedited interpretation of my jingle was that horrible product - I remember the female copywriters saying "It makes your hair feel like straw!"
