If you thought you heard a familiar song on a commercial break during yesterday’s Super Bowl, you were right. Brandy Clark‘s single “Stripes” was featured in the Beats Music Super Bowl Commercial, which put a spin on the classic “The Tree Bears” fairy tale.
The commercial features Ellen DeGeneres breaking into an apartment in “The Woods” complex in hopes of finding “the perfect music to dance to.” “Stripes” was featured as “Mama Bear’s” music.
“I can’t believe it!” Clark exclaimed upon receiving the news. “I am so excited about the commercial and about representing such a cool brand like Beats, and then you throw in that the commercial is airing during the Super Bowl where my home state team is playing and it features Ellen…somebody pinch me!”
Clark added, “My brother called and said, ‘sis, did you ever think that the Broncos would be playing the Seahawks in the Super Bowl and that you would be singing in a commercial that would be played during the game?’ My brother grew up a huge Broncos fan and I have always been a big Seahawks fan. I asked if he was still pulling for the Broncos and he said, ‘oh no we’re all about the Seahawks now!’”
