This is a new commercia for Levis jeans, shot by Australian director John Hillcoat (The Road) in the economically destitute city of Braddock, PA. Since The Road was shot in and around Braddock, it's likely that Mr. Hillcoat shot the commercial while working on the film.
The music of course is the "underwater" prelude to Scene I of Wagner's Das Rheingold.
Thanks to William Berger for the heads-up on this.

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats
- Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
