Who did the music for this commercial?

I searched and couldn't find anything and was guessing it was just written for the ad but my mom insists she's heard the whole song. I don't listen to the radio and have no idea who it could be. Would somebody help a mother out?

That would be that much loathed by many folks who post here, "Hey Soul Sister" by Train.

When I hear that song I keep thinking of "Drops of Jupiter" which was popular a few years back. Didn't realize it was the same group.

It's not that hard to figure out.

I was wondering how many posts it would be before someone was deemed a music snob for correctly identifying this piece of music as atrocious. Looks like that number is 5.

What's funny is they say "Ain't that Mister Mister on the radio?" and it makes me think A) Uh, NO, it's friggin' Train! And B) I would much rather hear Mister Mister than these guys!

Note: I hate Mister Mister, but compared to Train they sound like The Kinks!

If any band makes someone yearn for Mr. Mister, the Fail factor cannot even begin to be charted.

I don't know. Mr. Mister was pretty much the late 80's Train.

Kyrie and Broken Wings? Bland, wretched AOR garbage.

Hey Soul Sister and Drops of Jupiter? Bland, wretched AOR garbage.

Awesome! Comgrats on being the 100th to provide a reason to! We're quite the duo.

At least Mr. Mister had a Sting clone.
