This George clothing ad features an all-too-brief snippet of the seminal Rapper’s Delight by the Sugarhill Gang. First released in 1979, the track, which samples Chic’s Good Times, was one of the first to popularise hip-hop. It was a number 3 hit in the UK, but only reached number 38 in its native US. Nevertheless, Rapper’s Delight is now regarded as one of the most influential tracks of all time. A cover version was featured in the very popular Evian Roller Babies ad.
