Many people have wondered whether or not John Barry is the composer of the Mercedes Benz TV commercial "Faithful". For those not familiar with the commercial, here's your chance to hear the music to hear how much John Barry it is.

We have an email reply from the producer of the ad and he writes to us: "The musical score on the commercial is an original composition by Mike Hewer, with Amber music in London. Mike is quite an accomplished composer and works on both feature films and commercials."
