    This commercial aired about 11:35 EST during the NBA finals. Kids were playing soccer. The winning team hoisted the trophy, but the losing team hoisted Happy Meals.

    The music had a twangy, fuzzy guitar riff playing and the words were in spanish. Couldn't quite make out any words. Not much help, I know, but hopefully someone out there knows...

    Nevermind...I found it. It's by Os Mutantes - "A Minha Menina (My Girl)"

    I was so excited that this song was used! I kind of thought Os Mutantes was exxtra-obscure (in the US), being a 60s/70s Brazilian psychedelic rock band.

    Anyway, what a cool commercial! I believe they're singing in Portuguese. There's a slightly sillier sounding English version called "She's my shoo shoo" that's worth looking up.

    Get it at Amazon and iTunes.

    does anyone know the name or artist of the song in a new MacDonald's commercial for the Olympics? In the commercial it is a kids soccer game and the losers get their happy meals and become... well, happy.
    It sounds like a Brasilian song, I definitely heard Portuguese but I can't remember any specific words. Any thoughts? Thanks!
