Locksley are thrilled to have been selected to participate in the ad campaign for the NFL Play 60 initiative, the National Football League’s campaign to encourage kids to be active for 60 minutes a day to help reduce the trend of childhood obesity. The 90 second advertisement, featuring the Detroit Loins, is set to Locksley’s hit single “The Whip,” a song that has reached Top 40 radio play in markets across the country, and also been tapped in promotions for the animated feature films Rango and Puss In Boots, and a Chevy commercial. The song is also played across the country as the goal song for numerous NHL teams including the New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Columbus Blue Jackets. The NFL Play 60 commercial featuring Locksley made its first airings during nationally broadcast games on Thanks Giving Day and last night’s Sunday Night Football. It will air again today during tonight’s Monday Night Football game during commercial breaks.
This Thanksgiving Locksley were thankfull for such a successful 2011 that included the release of their new self-titled album this summer, widspread exposure for their music, a successful visit to their fans in Japan this fall, and two nation wide tours of the USA. This holiday season they look to give back by hosting a charity concert for New York City’s P.S. 142, a school that neighbors their long time practice space on the lower east side. On December 15th Feature Records and Locksley will present a Holiday Spectacular at the Bell House, featuring special guests Lily and The Parlour Tricks, Nat Brower & The Power, The Jonnies, Raccoon Fighter, Little Racer, and Locksley.
