This new ‘Oh Happy Days’ 2021 TV advert for the Citroën C4 and 100% Electric C4 shows the next-gen hatchback being driven through the 1950s and each following decade up to the ’90s.
As the C4 travels through time past older Citroen cars of the period, on its way to the present day, onlookers sing when the car drives by, beginning in the ’50s with a man playing piano in the street. This is the song they’re singing a cover of:
Advert Music: Oh Happy Day.
Artist: The Edwin Hawkins Singers.
Stream or download from Amazon.
This Citroen ë-C4 electric and 2021 Citroën C4 advert tune is an ad production music cover of the gospel song ‘Oh Happy Day’ that was first recorded in this arrangement by US group The Edwin Hawkins Singers and released as a single in 1968.
So does this Citroen ad make you happy that cleaner electric automotive technology is here, or make you long for the days of those now-classic Citroen vehicles and emptier roads?
