Husband and wife folk-pop stars, Us the Duo, are putting their music where their mouth is! Michael and Carissa Rae Alvarado are hugely popular on Vine for their 6-second covers of hit songs. Now they’re putting their musical talents to good use by partnering with Burt’s Bees to create songs inspired by lip balm flavors.
Over the past few months, the pair have created some original Vine tunes for a Burt’s Bees Coconut and Pear lip balm, as well as a Wild Cherry song. The cheeky lyrics include “Coconut & Pear, you’ve got the flowers in your hair. And we’re in love,” and “Wild Cherry I like to savor. Pull it out ya pocket and uncap the flavor.”
The couple will create and release a total of four Vine songs about their fave lip flavors.
Tad Kittredge, Burt’s Bees’ Associate Director of Marketing commented: “Us the Duo’s lip-centric Vines and their compelling love story caught our attention. We’re thrilled to see how they musically interpret the flavors of our natural lip balms with their flare for delightful six-second riffs.”
