TV Spot for the Hit Film “Creed” Features a Re-Imagining of a Classic Theme.
We train hard every day so that we’re ready to hit the ring and deliver whenever action calls, and recently had the opportunity to hit the mats with one of the greats: Rocky Balboa and his new movie “Creed”. Dan Diaz had the honor of creating a new arrangement of the classic “Theme From Rocky” entitled “The Left Hook”. Featuring piano with subtle, moving string accompaniment, the new cue energizes the spot in a dramatic but understated fashion perfect for this modern new chapter in a classic story.
In Creed, Adonis Johnson (played by Michael B. Jordan) didn’t know his famous father, boxing champ Apollo Creed, who passed before Adonis was born. Boxing, however, is in his blood, so he finds Rocky Balboa (played by none other than Sylvester Stallone) and convinces the retired champion to be his boxing trainer. Seeing so much of Apollo in him, Rocky agrees to mentor Adonis, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any he’s faced in the ring. Adonis soon gets a title shot due to Rocky’s help, but does he have the heart of a true fighter and the perseverance to see the fight through to the end?
