You have to drive quite a long time to see the stars in Canada. Subaru wants to change that. Developed in partnership with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, #SubaruDarkSky is encouraging people to get out there and see the night sky. There's also a nifty website with astronomy lessons and tips on where to see meteor showers and more. As for the spot itself, it's simple storytelling and quietly effective.

    Sounds like Feist, who also did that Apple commercial "One Two Three Four".

    I wonder if it is Zooey Deschanel (sp.) Sounds like her but just a guess!

    Its a nice story and I agree with CalgaryGuru that it really sounds like Feist. Love that lilting light soft sound. Will purchase it if it ever becomes available as a complete song. I wouldn't go with Zooey on this. Fingers crossed it can break the 3minute mark.

    To me, the song sounds a LOT like one by Alana York called Anthem. Sounds like her voice too. Just suggesting. Here's the YouTube link:
