Kavinsky recorded the song in 2011 and included it in his 2013 album OutRun. The song is a perfect example of modern French electro house; indeed, it’s produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (Daft Punk) and mixed by SebastiAn, two essential personalities of the French electronic music scene. The song has already been used in Drive and The Lincoln Lawyer movies.

The lyrics of the chorus, not present in the commercial, are:

There’s something inside you
It’s hard to explain
They’re talking about you, boy
But you’re still the same

According to the fans’ theories, the song partially tells the story of a boy who dies in a car crash and, after his death, makes a phone call to his girlfriend from the afterlife. In the song, the girlfriend answers him and wonders how she could be talking with him while the news is covering his death.
