Freeview’s latest TV ad features a singing cat and budgie, who seem to be getting on very well indeed. The song they’re singing is You’re All I Need To Get By, a 1968 Tamla Motwon hit for Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell. The song was written by soul duo Ashford & Simpson, and recorded separately by Gaye and Terrell due to the fact that Terrell was wheelchair-bound and suffering from a terminal brain tumour. You’re All I Need To Get By was a number one hit in the US, although it only reached number 19 here in the UK. It’s available to download from iTunes.

  1. Irena Vickers 8th April 2014 This advert is brilliant and its detail when the budgie and cat are singing make it seem real. I agree it should get an award alongside the dancing pony ad. I can’t stop replaying it.
