To launch Premium Duo--a subscription plan for couples living at the same address, allowing them to enjoy their favorite content, together and separately--Spotify is releasing this TV spot that captures real-life couples waxing lyrical about their tastes in music. Who deserves the “music aficionado” title? How does a man really feel about his partner blasting Christmas music in July?

But here’s the twist--puppets are doing the talking. Spotify partnered with Buenos Aires-based production company Tronco (which is represented and works in concert with 1stAveMachine in the U.S.) to bring these stories to the screen, transporting viewers to a land of cubed blue heads and pink mustaches, adding the right mix of zaniness and delight to the testimonials as only puppets can. Sebastian Schor + Becho & Mab directed the commercial which makes apparent the allure of Premium Duo whereby each user gets their own individual Premium account so they can both fully enjoy the benefits of Spotify Premium. This includes ad-free, on-demand listening and a catalog of more than 50 million tracks, as well as access to over 1 million podcast titles. Premium Duo users also get access to unique features just for the pair like Duo Mix, a regularly updated playlist.

Spotify’s creative ensemble teamed with Tronco and 1stAveMachine on the campaign.
