Play Your Heart Out

January 17, 2014 at 10:30 am 6 comments

The heart. It’s a funny thing. Yeah, it’s one, two, three, four chambers that pump blood through the body. But it does so much more. It pines. It sinks. It soars.

Bands have heart. Stories tug at it. Games send it racing. And each day is a chance to give every beat a meaning.

The heart wants a kiss to send it fluttering. And it wants it now. It wants break up songs, red-eye movie nights and late night creme brulee. And it wants heavy hearts, heartbreak, heart racers, heart-bursters and heart stoppers.

Sometimes the heart loves hating. And sometimes, the heart hates loving. But more than anything, the heart just wants to feel. There are about 2,500,000,000 heartbeats in a lifetime. You should feel every one of them.

-Full text of Google Play: Play Your Heart Out Commercial

The Super Bowl is one of the highly anticipated event on American TV. It’s not only for the game itself but also for its commercials. With ads going for $4 million per 30 seconds of airtime, They better be interesting enough to freeze people from their seats and postpone bathroom breaks.

One of the ads that fits the bill, I think, is the Google Play Your Heart Out commercial. I understand, many consider Google as the evil empire ready to take over the world by collecting, storing, and managing information aimed to control the way we think and live our lives. But that’s beside the point. The ad is really good. Don’t take my word for it. Just watch it and judge for yourself.

    I would have liked to have seen the video, but it isn’t available in India for some reason. I read the text you provided for it however.
