Re: "Ave Maria" Amazon commercial...

I love the song (one of my favorites), but I don't feel it belongs in a commercial.

Re: "Ave Maria" Amazon commercial...

I learned to play this beautiful song on the piano as a very young girl and have always loved it.  I even had it sung in Latin at my wedding.  I do think it is kind of an odd choice for this commercial though and they run it way too often.

I do too, and the commercial reminded me how much I love the song, and went searching for it on iTunes.

Re: "Ave Maria" Amazon commercial...

Ave Maria means Hail Mary and it's lyrics are a catholic prayer said to the Blessed Mother.

 

I don't understand the commercial and it makes me uncomfortable for Amazon to be using this song in a commercial.

 

It you figured out the message, please share.

I love the song and will close my eyes and enjoy it for as long as it's on and from what I understand the commercial is telling us that no matter how loud and hectic your environment is that Amazon has ways to transport you to your tranquil zone (Ave Maria being one of the most tranquil) and obviously one of the gentleman's "go-to" relaxation tunes..... I agree, it's on an awful lot, but so are a ton of them!

Isn't it advertising Bose headphones?  It is to show it blocks out the chaos of the household noise.  At least that is what I thought the ad was about.  

 

Not being Catholic, I don't care for the song.

I understand the song is a very difficult one to sing and it takes a talented singer to do it right. Celine Dion does a beautiful rendition of the song.
