Christmas is just days away, so shoppers and procrastinators are probably about to bust a move and head out to their local Old Navy to stock up on affordable gifts for everyone in their lives.
Time is of the essence, so the retailer’s ‘Gift Sale’ commercial requires a fun, upbeat song to get adrenaline flowing and get viewers up off the couch and into the store. What’s the song in the spot?
Children of the ’80s will recognize that it’s the rap classic ‘Bust a Move’ by Young MC. You want it! You got it!
It was a massive, monster success, originally released in 1989. It was G-rated rap, but it was also a song that put the genre on the mainstream’s radar. It won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance the following year, and while Young MC has remained active, he has never matched the level of success achieved with ‘Bust a Move.’
A little trivia about the song: Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea cameos on the song, which gets a new lease on life more than two decades later!
