Advert: Aldi – The Competitive Brownlees
Music: Johnny Pearson – Heavy Action (Theme from Superstars)
Team GB heroes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee are the most competitive brothers in the world according to this Aldi TV ad. The soundtrack, Heavy Action by Johnny Pearson, will be familiar to many UK viewers as the theme tune from BBC sports challenge TV show superstars, which began in 1973. It was subsequently used in the US as the theme for ABC’s (and later ESPN’s) Monday Night Football. Johnny Pearson was a member of the BBC’s Top of the Pops orchestra, and Heavy Action was originally composed and recorded for the BBC’s music library. It’s available to download on iTunes.
