2015 McDonald’s ‘Signs’ Commercial – What’s the Song?
McDonald's isn't necessarily known for its super emotional commercials, but their most recent one will definitely get you reaching for the Kleenex. It's a compilation of the various signs displayed at McDonald's franchises around the country. From "Boston Strong" to "A Little Lovin Can Change a Lot," the signs range from powerful and sweet, to funny and personal. There's a song playing in the background, that's super poppy and fun with inspirational lyrics. It's sung by a few different voices, kind of like a choir. So, what's the song?
The song is a cover of 'Carry On' by the band fun. fun are an American indie pop band based in New York City.
