Advert: AA – Singing Baby
Music: Ike & Tina Turner – Proud Mary
The AA go straight for the advertising jugular with this surefire combination of a cute baby, a catchy song, and some (admittedly ropey) lipsync effects in a humorous and sure to be popular TV ad. The lipsync and voice that sings along are provided by a slightly older child – although she’s still just six years old. The song is Proud Mary by Ike and Tina Turner (sometimes credited solely to Tina). Proud Mary was originally a hit for Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1969, before Ike and Tina substantially reworked it in 1971. Ike and Tina’s version is available to download on iTunes.
