The official Instagram account of OneRepublic posted a hilarious video of the band’s frontman Ryan Tedder to introduce a new hand sanitizer brand that they suggested fans to use instead of the usual bad-smelled ones.

The famous pop-rock band OneRepublic was founded in 2002 by singer Ryan Tedder, guitarist Zach Filkins, guitarist Drew Brown, bassist Brent Kutzle, drummer Eddie Fisher and keyboardist Brian Willett.

As you may recall, OneRepublic released several singles from their highly-anticipated new album, ‘Human,’ throughout this year whose release date was postponed to 2021. They already released the songs named ‘Didn’t I‘ and ‘Better Days.’ The band also collaborated with Kygo for a song titled ‘Lose Somebody’ which appeared on Kygo’s third studio album ‘Golden Hour.’

Recently, the official Instagram account of OneRepublic posted a video of the band’s vocalist Ryan Tedder to promote something other than their upcoming new album. As you will see in the video below, Ryan throws a bottle of hand sanitizer aside and opens up a box of sanitizers from the brand called ‘Emu.’

On the caption of the post, it was mentioned although the members of OneRepublic normally didn’t use their platform to promote brands like this, they wanted to introduce Emu to the fans since it smelled so good and also the brand donated part of their profits Covid-19 vaccine research.

Here’s what the caption said:

“We normally don’t use our page to promote anything other than music or social causes but, it’s a pandemic, flu season, and the hand sanitizer problem has to be fixed.

They need to be better. They’re now an essential accessory but somehow 99% of them smell like bad moonshine or tequila, they’re a sticky mess that makes hands actually feel dirtier than before.

However, we discovered a brand, Emu – first one that actually smells incredible, leaves our hands feeling actually better, has aloe, and is a spray- So you can spray down the surfaces of things you use as well as your hands. It smells good, it is good, and it donates part of their profits to Covid-19 vaccine research and development!

So that’s it, it wins. We’re not paid to promote it– but we invested in it cuz we love it that much. Lemongrass and watermelon… they’re the best sanitizer in the world that we’ve found.”
