There will be many notable commercials on television today, and one of them will feature Ellen DeGeneres in support of the Beats Music app. She premiered the commercial on her talk show for her 56th birthday on Thursday, but it will be viewable for the masses during today's Super Bowl.
"I love the app, and I had so much fun shooting the commercial," DeGeneres said, before she introduced the clip. "And you're really not supposed to see it until the Super Bowl. But it's my birthday, and it's my show, so I get to do what I want. That's what they get for loaning it to me."
The commercial shows DeGeneres playing the roll of Goldilocks on the search of the best dance music.
"But have no fear, then she used Beats Music," DeGeneres said in a voice-over. Then she instructed the app to play her track: "I'm in a den, and I feel like dancing to pop music."
A bear family and a wolf then appears. The bizarre part is the fact that these animal characters have human bodies, but we can overlook that? The head of the crew then instructed DeGeneres to "Hit play, baby." The talk show host, comedian and well-known dance fanatic ends up choosing Aloe Blacc's "Can You Do This."
The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be a curator on the app, creating playlists with some of the comedian's favorite songs. DeGeneres ended up gifted her entire studio audience with new LG G Flex phones. Now they can all check out the Beats subscription-based music streaming service. Chances are the commercial today will boost subscriptions that much more.
