OPP: Resort Getaway Commercial

Get Your Music on a Resort Getaway Commercial and Get Paid.


White Knight Worldwide Media (BMI) and are working with a U.S. ad agency to find a replacement track for a Hawai'ian island resort vacation travel campaign. The commercial is targeted towards those looking to escape the winter weather and cabin fever (January thru April). Producers are looking to replace the Beach Boys track "Warmth of the Sun" in feel, tempo, mood/emotion, messaging and tone. Producers are not seeking a cover or re-make of the iconic hit, yet want an original track with a similar emotional takeaway and retro spirit to compliment their island getaway's balmy tropical weather and relaxed atmosphere.

Listen to "Warmth of the Sun" here:

The commercial will be promoted as an ad on all major platforms and mobile outlets (YouTube Ad content), and via ad purchase spots for website sales. Ad duration will be no longer than 31 seconds, airing for no longer than 2.5 months (to be archived/available online via YouTube).
