I was looking up old Gap holiday ads today when I suddenly came across an image that reminded me...Gap totally used Janelle Monae in their Merry MixIt series of commercials 2 years ago! Anyone who hasnt been living in a cave for the last year knows that Ms Monae has exploded onto the music scene with her sultry voice and old school funky rhythm and style. Apparently Gap saw this coming a mile away and opted to use her in one of their videos...a wise decision because I remember this one being my favorite out of the series.
Well played Gap, well played.
On that note I totally want Janelle Monae to do a holiday album...I would play the hell out of it year round.
Bonus video- The whole Merry MixIt ensemble singing Jingle Bells...Janelle Monae blows everyone else out of the water
