Music Clearance for SMART Cars

Image result for smart cars logo

smart Automobile (stylized and marketed as “smart“) is a German automotive marque and division of Daimler AG, based in Böblingen, Germany. It ranges in microcars and subcompacts, primarily the Fortwo and Forfour with its primary assembly plants located in Hambach, France and Novo Mesto, Slovenia. Marketed in 46 countries in Asia, North and South America, Africa, Australia and Europe, production of the Fortwo had surpassed 1.7M units by early 2015.

The design concept for the company’s automobiles began at Mercedes-Benz in the early-70s and late-80s. After brief backing by Volkswagen, the first model was released by Daimler-Benz in October 1998. Several variants on the original design have been introduced, with the original being the “Fortwo”.

smart derives from cooperation with Swatch and Mercedes: Swatch Mercedes ART. In its branding, the company lowercases its logotype and the logo incorporating a “c” and an arrow for “compact” and “forward thinking” respectively.

Spark was asked by smart’s production agency BIGFISH to research the music rights for ‘If It Don’t Fit (Don’t Force It)’ by Lil Johnson & Barrel House Annie.

Fees were negotiated with the music publisher and master rights owners on behalf of Daimler AG in Germany.

The ad underlines smart’s brand personality of being different and fun: there is no need to be doing the same as others, just like driving a big car in world full of big cars.
