In Cadillac’s recent commercial for their 2015 Escalade, they show how luxury has evolved over time. From the Egyptian queen being carried around on her throne, to the Indian prince traveling atop a blinged out elephant -- the ad concludes with a couple driving around in an all new Escalade. Throughout the commercial, a familiar track is being played, and since you’re here, you probably want to know who it’s by, and what it’s called. Enjoy the commercial one more time and we’ll tell you more about the track below.
The track you’re hearing is called Fame and is by David Bowie. Since its release in 1975, it has been played on TV shows like Nip/Tuck, Ugly Betty, and Doogie Howser, M.D. Fame has also been covered multiple times; Duran Duran, Dave Matthews Band, Eurythmics, George Michael, and Pearl Jam are just a few of the bands that have done it.
