In honor of its forthcoming Prime Day shopping extravaganza, Amazon released a new commercial song that takes us back to the 80s.
Amazon’s annual shopping event expected to begin next week on Tuesday, July 12, and end the following day. With its commercial seen to send viewers back to the 1980s.
A mystery singer outlines the many goods available at the shopping event as he performs amongst a fog-covered floor outfitted with neon lights across the online retailer’s advertisement.
So who is the singer? Let’s explore more.
Amazon Prime Day’s new commercial
Amazon produced a new 2022 Prime Day commercial starring American artist Jon Batiste.
The music featured in the 2022 Amazon Prime Day commercial song promo is Get Into My Cart, a new song by Jon Batiste. In the commercial, Jon worries about all the things he needs, and at one point, he transforms into an 80s star and begins singing the song’s dedicated lyrics.
Then he starts making a list of everything he’s going to buy, losing himself in the joy of shopping. Finally, he explicitly tells us that prime day is July 12th and 13th, 2022. It’s a hilarious commercial, and the song does its dirty work.
When is the Prime day? I need to know. When is the Prime day? So many things to buy. Get into my cart. Get out of my dreams.
It makes perfect sense that people like it.
Get Outta My Dreams, Get in My Car by Billy Ocean, a smash single from 1988, serves as the soundtrack for the Prime Day promo.
While Jon Batiste’s version changes the lyrics to highlight the prices available during the Prime Day event, the 1988 song’s famous melody is still sung with ‘cart’ instead of ‘car.’
According to RollingStone, Batiste worked on the tune with numerous artists and was enthused about having an “amazing music experience” while working on it.
