Skrillex reps Fear Factory in speaker commercial

Posted by on November 28, 2014

It makes sense that Sonny Moore, aka Skrillex, would get into the portable speaker business. He’s at the forefront of current EDM, so his $160 “Boom” bluetooth speaker that he helped design will probably find an audience just because his name’s attached to it. In a YouTube ad promoting the speaker, Moore is shown using it, singing along to some drum and bass, reggae, and somewhat surprisingly, Fear Factory’s “Resurrection.” Head to about the two-minute mark to see him sing along. Fear Factory commented on their inclusion on their Facebook page:

“Skrillex loves FF ! Watch this video for his new speaker “Boom” he’s advertising ,towards the end he’s singing to our song “Resurrection” It’s always interesting to see someone who you wouldn’t think is a fan like your music.”

Given that Moore’s entry into the music industry was via From First to Last, it’s not that shocking of a revelation that he would like some metal, but at the same time, he could have easily used another band’s music. The clip looks somewhat organic, like it was a day in the life of what he was listening to, showing him using it on a plane and at a concert venue during soundcheck, so it’s very likely that he’s a legitimate fan of Fear Factory.
