On March 24, 2013 three guys from Sweden got up on a stage in Miami for their last performance ever.
After years of touring, and basically living their lives in hotels and airplanes, they finally got a chance to leave that life behind. At least for a while.
Volvo XC60 is a cross country car that can take you far away from the stressful city life, to a place where you can enjoy peace and quiet. Something these three guys were longing for more than anything.
This campaign introduces the new Volvo XC60 in a music video where Swedish House Mafia leaves the world behind for a while, return to their roots and spend some time in the beautiful and remote wilderness of Scandinavia.
The music used in the campaign is a cover of Swedish House Mafias track ”Leave the world behind.” That song was the beginning of their carreer and with this music video it will be their final good bye.
