Citibank Commercial Description

2011 tv commercial for the Citibank “Thank You card” credit card. It shows a couple on a weekend getaway, a rock climbing getaway the woman is going to use her Citi points to buy items for the trip. She is talking about the rock climbing gear she bought for the trip, even though at first it sounds like she is talking about using her Citi card for stereotypical things. From what I’m told, the place she is rock climbing in the Citibank commercial is called Corkscrew Summit, in Utah.

As of the time of this post, this song is unavailable for purchase on iTunes. However it IS available for FREE at LP’s website. And below is the studio recording for this song. 

Voiceover Says

My boyfriend and I had a big weekend planned. So I used my Citi Thank You card to pick up some accessories. A new belt, some nylons and what girl wouldn’t need new shoes. We talked about getting a diamond, but with all of the points I earned. I took him to the rock I really wanted.

Song Lyrics Used

Somebody left the gate open
Come save us a runaway train

    I would like to know how this ad was made. It is spetacular and my curiosity is this for real or created in a studio?

    I have the same question as Duncan. How was this made? What was the real exposure and who were the actors/climbers who made it?

    This was filmed in the Moab Utah area. The first part is shot over towards the Dead Horse Point area. I recognize the Shafer Trail down below on the flat ground below. The second area where she is standing on top of the pinnacle is at Fisher Towers (in the Castle Valley area near Moab). The pinnacle is known as Corkscrew Summit of Ancient Art.

    I live in Castle Valley Utah so these places are very familiar to me. There are a number of times a year where we will hear helicopters flying around. We figure they are filming another commercial, move or TV show.

    For those of you wondering about how this commercial was made, CNN recently did a story about it:

    Is this footage free from computer-based graphic manipulation.
    It makes me grab my chairarms every time she stands up!
    I hope this has not been tweaked.
    Please reassure me, someone.

      It’s cool footage isn’t it? I wondered the same thing that you did, but then I saw a story about it on CNN and apparently the whole thing is real. In the comment above yours, I posted the video.

    This commercial would be slightly less annoying if that awful music wasn’t in it.

      Whoever is singing in this commercial needs to find another job. The first time I heard it I thought someone ran over a raccoon in front of my house. Nauseating.

    I could NOT agree more with the two comments above me!!! This song is smply nauseating – I actually turn the channel now when I see the commercial starting then go back a minute later. Detest is not a strong enough word and it’s unfortunate necause the commercial itself is pretty cool. Plus it’s LOUD – loud and horrible are a bad combo!

    Thank God for internet. The song drove me nuts for weeks. Thought lyrics said “someone shot my potato” the raccoon comment was hysterical and validated my obsession. So annoying I will never have a citicard. Now that I know true lyrics I can move on with my life.

      I agree, you can use mute if you don’t like the song. I just don’t understand why Citibank has been showing it for 4 months now, especially when people are annoyed by it. Make a new commercial already! Must save money or some insider is supporting it.

    What the songs lyrics say at the end it sounds like it said “Somebody likes Potatoes” I would like to know the lyrics of this song. Does anyone knows it?

    This commercial was Not made in a studio. It is a real rock in utah.

    That is so funny. I’ve been wondering what the words are. It sounds like “Someone left the gate open…”

    Help There’s a commercial with a slw rock song that I’m looking for. The only lyrics I recall are when he says “say it….ooooooooooo”. Who is the artist or what song is it?

      We’d be happy help, but we’re going to need lots more detail. Especially the product it’s for, and then any other details about the commercial.
