What’s The Song In The Michael Phelps Under Armour Ad?


In a new television spot for activewear company Under Armour, billion-time gold medalist Michael Phelps preps for his final trip to the Olympics. He swims! He carbo-loads! He sleeps in a tube! He lifts his legs while hanging from a pull-up bar! He swims some more! He remains completely still during a cupping therapy session! As if this Rio de Janeiro training montage wasn’t enough to get me all sorts of psyched for this summer’s games, the commercial threw in a tune that’s so good, it deserves a gold medal of its very own. The song in the Under Armour ad where Phelps prepares to say his last goodbye to the Olympics is “The Last Goodbye” by the Kills, the indie rock duo of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince. This record was the fourth single off of the band’s 2011 full length album Blood Pressures.
