Something incredible, yet rather bizarre, has just happened to me. I’m a bit flustered and I just need to tell someone. via /r/CasualConversation


Something incredible, yet rather bizarre, has just happened to me. I’m a bit flustered and I just need to tell someone.

OK, I must warn you that this is a long and strange story. Sit down, bust out the popcorn, and prepare to be underwhelmed.

A year or so ago, I was sitting around watching youtube. I didn't have adblock at the time, so I was watching an ad for the Seat Toca (a car). There was a song in the background of this ad, and I loved it. The ad was only about 30 seconds long, but the song was bloody amazing. I was immediately determined to find this song.

I started watching the ad on repeat, trying to figure out the lyrics so I could google the song and find it (my usual strategy). But nothing turned up.

People in the comments section were discussing the song; several other people were trying to find it. Someone said it sounded like a guy called Mike something (I can't remember the full name of the artist). So I searched for Mike something, and went through a lot of his discography. But still – no luck. I tried searching his name + the lyrics, but… nothing.

I tried using shazam. For those who aren't familiar, this is an app that uses the microphone on your phone to identify songs. The idea is that you play the song, turn on the app, and the app will tell you the name and artist of the song. But shazam was bloody hopeless, and couldn't identify the song. I downloaded the app, just for this one song, and deleted it when it failed me.

At this point, I must admit that I was watching the 30-second ad once or twice a day, just so I could listen to the song, no matter how briefly.

My next step was to email the Seat marketing department. I'm deadly serious, I actually did this. I sent a polite email, asking what the song was called. A few days later, I got a reply. The Seat employee told me that the song was a special commission for this particular ad, and wasn't available for general release. Essentially, it's not a real song, and there's no way to find it.

I was heartbroken, but also felt a certain sense of closure. I popped back into the youtube comment section, and let everyone know about my findings. I had been keeping my IRL friends updated throughout this entire saga. They found it hilarious, and mocked me for the effort I was expending in order to find this song. I'm the kind of guy who can be very determined – if I want something, I'll put a lot of effort into getting it. This was just another weird project of mine, which unfortunately didn't work out.

But so it goes. I moved on. I almost forgot about the song.

Fast forward to today, about one year after I originally heard the song. I get a random PM on Reddit. It's from a user I've never spoken to; a user who frequents subreddits that I'm not subscribed to. I have no idea who this person is.

The PM simply read as follows:

Song – Turn the lights down Artist – BSO

This song is on spotify, but not youtube or anywhere else. I made a spotify account, just to hear this song – if a random stranger PMs you a song, you have a duty to listen to it, right?

Well, I think you can all guess where this is going. Yes. Yes. IT'S THE BLOODY SONG! IT'S THE ACTUAL, LEGIT, FULL VERSION OF THE SONG!

I have no idea who that redditor is. I have no idea how they found me, and I have no idea how they knew about that song. I'm fairly sure I never mentioned it on Reddit. I send them a slightly crazed reply; a strange mix of utter gratitude and utter confusion. My reply read as follows:

Oh my god. Oh my fucking god. I'm actually freaking out.

Who are you? How did you know? WHAT IS GOING ON?

Thank you so much. But also, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON

Their response was

Shh bby is ok

I shit you not. Never before have I felt such love for a total stranger.

So, yeah. Wow. This is a pretty huge deal for me.

For context, here's the ad that started it all. The song is called "turn down the lights", by an artist called BSO. The full song isn't actually as great as I had hoped, but that's not the point!

Edit – I've just realised that this whole post might be construed as a pathetic attempt at viral marketing for Seat. So I want to state that Seat are a terrible company, their cars are awful, and they are capitalist pigdogs that do not deserve your money.

Edit2 – here is a screenshot of the PM.

Edit3 – last one, I promise. here is the email from Seat. Here is the full unredacted PM conversation (I didn't want to post this until I knew /u/TheVikingHoward was comfortable with it). We're starting to get an idea of what might have happened, but I'm not gonna tell you here because it ruins the story. This is not a marketing campaign, I am not a member of BSO, and I did not fake the whole thing using alt accounts. Shh.
