Google Chrome Commercial Description

Spring 2012 commercial for Google Chrome featuring a man trying to get the girl of his dreams back and asking her to meet for coffee. He’s using Google Chrome to look back at their time together. It’s funny how good Google’s marketing team is at making fantastic, emotionally impactful advertisements. A commercial about a web browser, and it gives you goosebumps. It’s a web browser! I hope they continue this storyline for another commercial because I’d like to see if they accept. I’m a little embarrassed that I’m this emotionally invested in a commercial for a web browser.

More About Artist & Song

This is why I write a website about songs used in commercials. Little gems by obscure bands that have slipped through the cracks are brought back to life because the song was used in a tv commercial. I would’ve never heard of this 2007 song if it weren’t for this ad. Here is the thing about the band The Meemies though: there is nothing on the internet about them.

Here is a list of what I know about the Meemies:

  1. They have a cute girl lead singer.
  2. Their album was from 2007.
  3. There doesn’t seem to be a peep about them since their album was released.

Does anyone know anything about the Meemies? Let us know in the comments! In the meantime, here is the music video for the 2007 song: Porch Song.

Song Lyrics in Ad

Sorry ’bout those things I said before
Sorry about those things I said before
People come and people go
People come by now you know

And I’m sorry all about all those things
One day you will realize
How sorry I was that you had to go

Take away the sun, you can’t see no moon
Take away the sun, you can’t see no moon
Need the one to see them both
Need the one by now you know
Take away the sun you can’t see no moon

Knew that you had to leave me
But I’m sorry that you had to go so soon
And I wish I could turn these days to weeks
I wish I could turn these days to weeks

    That’s funny. You are so right. There are songs that we don’t know or have forgot and some TV ad brings them to us. I had never heard this song before the commercial aired. This is a good song and I am glad it came to me how-ever. Cleaver use of such a simple progression. I like the lyrics and the music. Good call! Cheers, oh nice web site!
