The flower child in time

Child in Time (all 30 seconds of it) is featured in the new Kenzo commercial:

The making of video provides a bit of background. Too bad that they talk about everything, from design of the bottle, to choice of the model, but never mention the music. More so, as it looks like choice of the music was definitely not accidental — commercial aesthetics was inspired by late 60s flower child photo, with Child in Time fitting perfectly with the time frame and mood of the film.

Thanks to Andres for the tip.

    If you listen to the recent UK Peugeot ad it sounds like the Space Truckin’ riff (minus the 5th note) and Auction Hunters has a very close facsimile of the SotW riff.

    Please in German. Sorry. Der Song ” CHILD IN TIME ” ist für mich das beste Lied, was ich jemals gehört habe, und das in allen Variationen und verschiedenen Besetzungen. For me, the
    ABSOLUT BEST SONG. Thank you ALL.
