PATRICK WATSON "The Great Escape" MP3 from Tropicana Commercial

Patrick Watson

Found in a commercial for Tropicana’s “Artic Sun” campaign, Patrick Watson’s “The Great Escape” filled the mood effortlessly. The setting took place in the Canadian Arctic on the 31st day without sunlight. With days on end of darkness in that realm of the world, it’s hard to imagine what it’s like being without sunlight for day and how much more when it’s weeks or months. But on January 8th Tropicana set up a gigantic light bulb to become the people’s sun lighting up the lives of the villagers. And when the school children are surprised by the light you see their sense of freedom. “The Great Escape” from their dark cold day was brought to them by Tropicana.

From Patrick Watson’s 2006 album Close To Paradise, “The Great Escape” is a brooding song but is also filled with a lot of optimism and hope. The California born Canadian will also be embarking on a new tour this Spring. Make sure to check him out as a lot of his songs are quite and reminiscent of other classic songwriters.
