JCPenney Commercial Description

My gosh. JCPenney ads have been killing it lately. This March 2012 commercial for JCPenney features lots of bright colors and is just plain fun to watch. A lot happens in a short amount of time in this commercial, so I’m going to give the rundown in bullet point form.

  • Little girl looking out the window at a robin (eh? Rockin’ Robin?? eh?) of a bright yellow house.
  • A mom in a bright orange shirt using a hand pump to air up an orange inner-tube for her daughter.
  • A family taking a family portrait in their living room with bright yellow walls.
  • Woman playing ping pong alone, vs the bright green wall while a cuckoo clock bird comes out of the clock.
  • The same woman leaves her bright green house with her friend and drive by in their awesome little yellow car.
  • A woman looking at hummingbirds with binoculars in a green field.
  • The little inner-tube girl trying to get out of the front door, but the inner-tube is too big
  • Man and woman flying a bright orange kite atop their city apartment.

About Artist & Song

I think everybody on earth may know this song by heart. Rockin’ Robin was written by Leon Rene and recorded by Bobby Day in 1958. This is really the only song Bobby Day is known for. But I suppose if it’s one of the most widely known songs in the entire world, that’s still a pretty cool accomplishment. The Michael Jackson version of this song from 1972 is probably almost as widely known. Speaking of Michael Jackson, Bobby Day wasn’t only a singer, he was a songwriter and he wrote the song “Little Bitty Pretty One” for the Jackson 5.

He rocks in the treetops all day long
Hopin’ and a-bopin’ and a-singin’ his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street

Oh rockin’ robin well you really gonna rock tonight
