Advert: McDonald’s McCafe – Putting On The Ritz
Music: Fred Astaire – Putting On The Ritz (re-record)
This TV ad, from the LBB agency, highlights the McDonald’s McCafe premium drink and snack range. The soundtrack is a re-record of the song Putting On The Ritz, from the Irving Berlin musical of the same name. It was originally recorded by Harry Richman, and then by Fred Astaire, with whom the song is most closely associated. This re-record, recorded and arranged by John Altman for Jeff Wayne Music, is similar to the Astaire version. The re-record isn’t commercially available, but you can.
