Harp Sighting- Help please

  • Sherry

    There is a commercial on tri-state NYC area TV right now in which a harp is heard and seen very briefly, followed by the appearance of some very rough looking man. The car being advertised is supposed to be rough and refined at the same time, hence the rough looking man and the harp.

    The harp is a tall looking Celtic looking harp that is only shown at the very beginning of the commercial. Could someone identify it? The commercial may be for some sort of Toyota, although I'm not sure.

      Sherry,

      I think I saw that commercial on TV last night, and I believe the harp was a L&H Troubadour.  Was the music that was being played "Greensleeves?"

      Hi Sherry,

      I have recently seen that commercial too.  The rough looking guy is Chuck Norris, which I found amusing because somewhere on this site I think it was mentioned that Chuck Norris plays the harp (not in the commercial).

      Brook is right, the song is Greensleeves but the harp is shown so briefly it is hard to tell what it is but what glimpse you do get of it does look like a L&H Troubador.

      Thank you both! That's the commercial. My husband laughed at me for calling the car a Toyota- it's actually a Hundai (?), and the back of it is too small for a harp, the only criteria at present for cars in this house.

      I just glimpsed the harp and it looked as though it was shaped a little differently than what I expected from a Troubador, also looked rather tall, very handsome.

      Glad I wasn't imagining that I saw it!

      Hi Sherry,

      I found the commercial on youtube.  It is actually for a Honda Ridgeline. Here's the link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mg8EMmOWQI

      Is she playing a Troubadour? And is she playing Sam Milligan's version of Greensleeves?

      Definitely a troub.  I'm not familiar with Sam Milligan's Greensleeves though...
