Advert: Toyota RAV4 Hybrid – Changes
Music: David Bowie – Changes (re-record)
This TV Ad for the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid began airing in Europe on 10 January, the day before the announcement of the death of David Bowie. Despite this sad coincidence, Toyota have decided to keep the same soundtrack for the UK ad – a re-recorded cover version of Bowie’s Changes. “We have decided to continue running the ad unchanged, because the reason why we chose this song is the same,” say Toyota in a statement. “We found it inspirational.” Toyota also say they don’t have permission to release the name of the re-record artist. David Bowie’s original version of Changes is available to download on iTunes.
