Nothing gets you psyched for the work day like a montage. Monster.com and Deutsch Los Angeles follow office workers through the city as they look… well, not terribly excited. Except for that one guy. But trust us, they love their jobs.
Where earlier Monster.com ads relied on the script (see "The Road Less Traveled" in 2000), this spot relies heavily on the soundtrack, Blue Man Group's version of the Donna Summer classic "I Feel Love." Monster's other commercial in Super Bowl XXXVIII is no less audibly driving, complementing a quick beat with alarm clocks going off ("Soulmates").
