DieHard featuring Gary Numan performing his classic song “Cars”

August 10, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

“Syyn Labs, the folks who created the Rube Goldberg machine for OK Go’s “This Too Shall Pass” video, recently did a commercial for DieHard featuring Gary Numan performing his classic song “Cars” on actual cars (their tuned horns), playing them like a piano, all powered by a single DieHard battery. We were intrigued and asked them to tell us how they did it. They sent us this behind the scenes video. The commercial is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4YsMV… You can read an article about the making of the commercial and the tech they used here:

Recoil & Gary Numan double bill in Chicago / Numan to play 'The  Pleasure Principle' in full
Following Recoil’s recent US leg tour announcement, we got word that the gig taking place at The Metro in Chicago on 26th October will be a double bill featuring both Recoil and Gary Numan. Numan and his band will be performing his classic “The Pleasure Principle” album in full. Also on the bill for that evening is Architect. Tickets are available from the following outlet (www.etix.com) and are already on sale. Tickets for several other shows can be purchased at Ticketmaster.

Playing the cars

July 14, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Gary Numan lends his person and most famous composition to Sears for an inspired commercial about the latest DieHard battery. Utilizing a two-octave Car Keyboard, Numan “plays” his famed ’80s hit on tuned car horns. Although, he looks miserable throughout, he’s probably laughing on the inside…all the way to the bank.
