Leonard advertising the Singapore F1 Grand Prix

Postby Greg Ross » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:26 pm

Amazing this evening - I sat down to watch the Singapore F1 Grand Prix and they played the ad for the GP. It was Leonard singing 'YOU WANT IT DARKER.' I just managed to grab the phone and record the last bit of the ad, as I thought nobody would believe me - click on the link below.

Hi Greg,
May I ask which channel you was watching? I assume this promo of Singapore GP might be created by local broadcaster.
Cheers,

Thanks for the channel info, Greg. I'm sure it is created by Foxtel coz I didn't find this promo in International feed.

YWID suits Singapore GP's night scene. Hope somewhere would stream this promo in HD again.

I have been thinking about how to embed LC's songs into F1, like a lousy driving highlight complication with the song SLOW. LOL.

I'm wondering if they sought permission from Leonard's estate! I'm sure Robert Korey will be on to it, if they didn't and he finds out! I might have the only proof!

'You Want It Darker' also being played at the start of the BBC2 Drama 'Black Earth Rising'.
