PUBLIC ENEMY SONG “HARDER THAN YOU THINK” FEATURED IN OFFICIAL NBC SUPER BOWL XLIX COMMERCIAL
Public Enemy’s song, “Harder Than You Think,” has been selected for NBC’s official Super Bowl XLIX Commercial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWGail9JsYY), currently airing on the network with a voiceover by fellow hip-hop music legend Ice-T. “Harder Than You Think” was also featured in the UK’s powerful and emotionally-charged “Meet The Superhumans” 2012 Paralympics campaign (https://youtu.be/kKTamH__xuQ), hailed as one of the best short films of the year by London’s Telegraph newspaper. After it debuted on 78 channels simultaneously throughout the UK in July 2012, the track went on to reach #4 on The Official UK Singles Chart and #1 on the Indie Singles Top 20 Chart.
Public Enemy’s music also provides the driving backbeat to the trailer for the Golden Globe nominated film Selma (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6t7vVTxaic). The group’s “Say It Like It Really Is,” from their 2012 album The Evil Empire of Everything, provides a potent backdrop to the preview of the film that chronicles the months leading up to Selma-to-Montgomery civil rights marches.
