Advert: Google+ – Plus Tom
Music: Alan Silvestri – Cast Away (End Titles)
This sentimental Google+ advert, premiered during the ITV talent show Britain’s Got Talent, follows the life of a chap called Tom Barker via posts he shares on Google’s social network. The ad features Sherlock Holmes actor Benedict Cumberbatch reading the ‘All the World’s a Stage’ monologue, sometimes referred to as ‘the Seven Ages of Man’, from William Shakespeare’s play As You Like It. The music is from the soundtrack to the 2000 Tom Hanks movie Cast Away, and was composed by Alan Silvestri.
