Starling Bank’s new ‘Off the Ground’ 2020 TV advert tells us about how they can help businesses fly, demonstrated by a woman taking to the skies in her flying shed.
After traveling over the British countryside, the garden shed is struck by lightning and begins plummeting towards the ground. Luckily though the pilot was prepared for stormy weather as she deploys the crafts emergency glider wings to get herself back on course.
This 60-second version of the ad concludes with the voiceover saying “Whether you’re just taking off or up and running. Starling Bank, helping business fly”.

If this 2020 Starling Bank advert song sounds familiar to you, but you can’t quite put your finger on where from, it’s actually Overture from the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). Hopefully, that helps if it’s been bugging you.
This piece of music was created by the American composer Michael Kamen who’s worked on dozens of film scores since the 1970’s. The movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves starred actor Kevin Costner in the title role and was released in 1994, famously featuring Bryan Adams’ massive hit ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It for You’.
Some of the other big movies that Michael Kamen has worked on the soundtrack of include Highlander, Lethal Weapon 1, 2, 3 & 4, Die Hard 1 & 2, Licence to Kill, The Last Boy Scout, Last Action Hero, The Three Musketeers, Die Hard with a Vengeance, 101 Dalmatians, and X-Men. So basically if you’re a fan of hit action films, you’ll have already listened to much of Kamen’s music, whether you realised it or not.
