    Music, Beer and Dr. Who

    Recently I learned here who the musicians were in a
    TV ad for Hyundai that I saw a year and a half ago.

    I've got another.

    Last year, in April, I think, I saw a music video on
    some video streaming website -- either YouTube or
    something similar. It had really fun-sounding music
    with nonsense syllables or made-up words (like scat
    singing in jazz) sung by a woman. The video was
    posted by the band. The video images, though, were
    extracted from one or more fairly recent Dr. Who
    episodes. I lost track of the video and the URL.

    I asked about it here but nobody knew what I saw.

    Last month, about June 20, I saw an ad for Heinekin
    beer that had music which sounded like the same
    band and singer, using the same technique. Does
    anyone recognize the ad I'm talking about, to help
    me determine whether it is the same band, and so
    find out who I'm searching for?

    Searching is a bit difficult for me because I only have
    a dialup Internet connection. It probably took over
    an hour to download the three-minute Dr. Who video
    the first time, when I came across it while looking
    for something else.

    YAAAAAYYYY!!!!

    "The Golden Age" by Asteroid Galaxy Tour.

    That's not the same video, of course, but it's the band,
    same singer, and a different version of the same song.

    I wasn't expecting the video. Space themed, yet!
    Yeeehaaaa! That is fun!

    This was from 2009. I think the version on the Dr. Who
    video must have been recorded later, possibly last year.
    That wordless one might sound better to me, but the
    lyrics on the original version certainly have great charm.

    Thanks, Sean!

    I assume that the length and download speeds of the
    two videos were about the same. This one actually took
    about 2 hours 20 minutes to download. Not counting
    when I foolishly clicked in the gray area on the progress
    bar when the download was just over half done, causing
    it to download all over again from the start....

    You're very welcome.

    I couldn't actually find the Dr. Who-themed video, but I found the Heineken commercial and thought it sounded like what you were describing.

    Ah! I wondered how you found it and considered asking,
    but decided to let you just say as much as you wanted.
    I was also planning on looking for the Dr. Who version
    (or traces of it -- since it used obviously copyright material
    it may have been taken down), but hadn't started yet.
