Music: Together in Electric Dreams - cover by Waters Kinley, original by Phil Oakey and Georgio Morodor
Heineken UK's new advert for Strongbow cider features not actors but real-life musicians Chris Kinley and Rob Waters playing their version of 1980's hit 'Together in Electric Dreams' in a pub. The company say they want to remind people "of all those great times in pubs", perhaps a hint that we should all start using them more before they all close down.
This is the first advert of planned series featuring 'local personalities' and Heineken will host a series of 'Strongbow Nights' in which musicians will perform in pubs across the UK.

The original song was by The Human League's Phil Oakey and Italian singer, songwriter, DJ and record producer Giorgio Moroder, who is dubbed the "Father of Disco" . You can see their video below - check out the 80's PC!
