Can one song dually inspire a bike advocacy video in London and a car commercial in the United States? That’s exactly the case with the song “Straight Lines” by Louisville native and Brooklyn-based artist Dawn Landes. I just finished listening to a repeat broadcast of WNYC’s Soundstage program where Dawn played live with Ray Rizzo and Josh Kaufman where they mentioned these videos, so I had to check them out.
I would say the Transport for London video is the winner hands down for creativity, but I suppose I’m a little partial to bikes as opposed to minivans. Thoughts?
Dawn Landes will be playing at Forecastle in Louisville on July 11.
