We’re guessing this Truly Madly Deeply singing might happen again when our favourite pubs finally re-open after COVID-19 lockdown!

 

Global (1 July 2020) – A video has from 2010 has started trending again and bringing us all the pub feels!

It might be titled “Hooligans singing Savage Garden’s Truly Madly Deeply, but the internet agrees that for some odd reason it’s pretty special, and absolutely wholesome!

We did a bit of digging, and it turns out that Puma created the campaign connecting soccer with romance with “The Hardchorus”.

“Football players and fans sing love songs like they’d sing them in the stands. They want to be in your arms. You want to be in the stands.

Costing the equivalent of just five 30-second World Cup 2010 TV spots, the ‘HardChorus’ campaign doubled weekly store sales and delivered 1.8 million unique visitors to Puma online. Our objective was to engage directly with everyday football fans, regardless of team or player preferences.”

Lyrics:

I’ll be your dream, I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your fantasy.
I’ll be your hope, I’ll be your love, be everything that you need.
I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do
I will be strong, I will be faithful ’cause I’m counting on a new beginning.
A reason for living. A deeper meaning.

I want to stand with you on a mountain.
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky,
I’ll make a wish send it to heaven then make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty.
That we’re surrounded by the comfort and protection of
The highest power, in lonely hours, the tears devour you

I want to stand with you on a mountain,
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever,
Until the sky falls down on me

Oh can you see it baby?
You don’t have to close your eyes
‘Cause it’s standing right before you.
All that you need will surely come

I’ll be your dream, I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your fantasy.
I’ll be your hope, I’ll be your love, be everything that you need.
I’ll love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to live like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me
