There is a Verizon commercial running featuring a drumline. Looks like traditional grip, sounds like Army 2/4 in the very beginning, I think it is a slowed down version of 'Ring, Silver Bells' that is being played. Bass drum being hit in slow motion, with dust flying around.
Ends with the snare doing a roll or two and throwing his sticks over his shoulders like a mic drop.

Anyone seen this?

Just saw it on line. A whole lot of tics in that commercial. :o

Nice national exposure for drumming though.

I saw it, pretty sloppy, but at least it shows rudimental drumming.

Yes, and I don't think the audio matches the video, I think the sound was recording, possibly played by real drummers, and then the video was shot, possibly using people who are not drummers, which explains the bad stick grips.

I've wondered from since the first time I saw it why they didn't do better research to make it more legitimate, given how popular drumming in general and even rudimental drumming is. It would not have been very hard or taken very long to go through that process. Same is true for many commercials, tv shows and movies that show some kind of marching music. Can't imagine what the comments on youtube clips of this commercial must be like.
