The Music In Coinbase’s Viral Super Bowl Ad Was Produced By Com Truise and Samples The Beatles

Coinbase’s viral Super Bowl advertisement was a hit. For Coinbase, it was a hit to their servers. The commercial was simply a QR code that bounced around the screen like the classic DVD logo in the 90s. It was a simple and ingenious marketing strategy, and the traffic that Coinbase received during the ad’s 60-second run time temporarily crashed the company’s servers. But the music was also a hit. The track from the commercial was created by electronic music veteran Com Truise, who sampled the melody of a motown classic and produced an eerie chillwave song. “Money (That’s What I Want)” was originally written by Berry Gordy and Janie Bradford. Barrett Strong was the first artist to record and release the track in 1959 before The Beatles and The Kingsmen ea...

As Super Bowl LVI approaches this Sunday, there is one thing fans can be sure to expect: crypto ads. One marketing campaign led by Binance, the largest global exchange by trading volume, warns fans about taking these anticipated crypto commercials to heart, and uses celebrities to make its point.  Last week, Binance released its first video featuring Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler who said that “I can give you advice on a lot of things.

Minnesota Vikings’ Kirk Cousins Stupidly Suggests Surrounding Himself With Plexiglass Instead of Getting Vaccinated

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: Icon Sportswire / Getty It’s thinking like this that is keeping the United States COVID-19 hell.
