Skoda Octavia – Amazing Everyday

Advert: Škoda Octavia – Amazing Everyday
Music: Portless – New Ride

Download track from iTunes

This Škoda Octavia TV advert is the first ever car ad to feature a slow motion shot of a man eating soup while straddling a fence. The soundtrack is New Ride by Portless, which sounds exactly like a track recorded specially for a Škoda ad by a Czechoslovakian rock band should. It has actually been released as a single, and you can download it from iTunes.

  1. I just looked this up as the vocal sounds quite like Martin Gore to me. Will definitely have to look this and up!

    • Stupid me. The lead singer, bass guitarist and drummer of Portless were also in Support Lesbiens, Seems there may have been a falling out?.

  2. “…which sounds exactly like a track recorded specially for a Škoda ad by a Czechoslovakian rock band should…”

    True! When I first heard this I was convinced it was by Czech band ‘Support Lesbiens’ whose brilliant track “Sweet Little Something” charted all over Europe a few years ago!
