Advert: Lurpak Cook’s Range – Adventure Waits
Music: Richard Strauss – Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001: A Space Odyssey)
This amusingly epic TV ad from Lurpak, featuring a voice-over from actor Rutger Hauer, invites viewers to “venture forth” with the new Lurpak Cook’s range. The soundtrack is composer Richard Strauss’s Also Sprach Zarathustra, which will be familiar to many as the theme from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. There are many different recordings of the piece, but the version chosen by Kubrick to be used in the movie was recorded by conductor Herbert von Karajan with the Vienna Philharmonic. It’s available to download from iTunes.
