Match.com in the UK launched “Ukelele” in 2011, following on from the success of Accidental Duet (Piano) in 2010. Set on a railway platform in Sutton, the television commercial is a classic ‘boy meets girl’ story, designed to remind people what it feels like to meet someone you’re attracted to for the first time. The advert features the song She Began to Dance by Matthew P, sung to the accompaniment of an aNueNue Khaya Mahogany Soprano ukelele.

The Ukelele campaign was developed at Mother London.
