From now on, at work I shall address anyone with a short name just like that. "Zack! Zack, Zack, Zack! Zack, Zack, Zack! Zack, Zack, Zaaaack!"

Now if only I could find the instrumental baseline to Eye of the Tiger to go along with it. Or my own band.

The drum set on the rolling platform was the best part of the commercial.

I love the fact that they stop right in the middle of the music to start over when Roy gets on the elevator.

One of the funniest commercials I've seen in a while.

I've seen this on TV and heard it on the radio a bazillion times already. Hope they don't run it into the ground.

That's pretty damned funny. When was the last time you actually saw someone playing a keytar?

Glen! Glen! Glen!

IIRC, the lead singer of Survivor is the guy that sings in the Budweiser "Real Men of Genius" commercials.

The version they've been airing in Canada is a bit different though. Different editing and Roy steps into the elevator instead of the band following him.

Very much agree. The short one I saw was a real let down. Specially the end.

Thanks for upping this thread... I just laughed for 10 minutes at work again watching this.

What do they say when he's on the bus... when what opens up on the way to the top?
