Best commercial going: A Progressive Insurance commercial where the couple is preparing to go kayaking(?) and they realize they forgot the lifejackets.

“Do you remember the
21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away
Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing
As we danced in the night
Remember how the stars stole the night away
Ba de ya – say do you remember
Ba de ya – dancing in September
Ba de ya – never a cloudy day
– Earth, Wind and Fire
