Some say the key to selling is to hook people when they're young. I suppose this means that the little kid currently dancing around the house singing this tune will be a Prius driver in a few years. "That tune is so catchy" she says, and we can't disagree. “Hum” features animated characters embarking on a cross-country tour set to an original soundtrack written and produced by Saatchi LA, in fact, one of Saatchi LA's creative producers came up with the tune while strumming a guitar in his garage. It's sticky like glue, this jingle.
