i've been in a funk lately because i can't find this song anywhere. the commercial is for energizer batteries, and it features a twentysomething guy chasing his mp3 player around the city. the headphones are running like legs, dragging the player behind. (the premise is that the batteries give your gadgets SO MUCH ENERGY, they come ALIVE!!). the song has almost a sort of reggae feel to it, i guess. at the end of the commercial the guy catches his player and is chillin on his couch when his digital camera starts sneaking away.

i live in montreal, canada, and i think i've seen the ad on a canadian station.

any help would be greatly appreciated!!
can you describe the song? genre/type of music, lyrics, male/female vocals, etc.
Yes, I would like to know the name and artist of this song as well. I'm not sure what genre it is. It has a syncopated beat, a male vocalist, and maybe a bit of a black gospel feel to it.

The campaign, created by DDB Canada. The 30-second TV commercial begins in an apartment where a man looks for his MP3 player. He sees the door is open and runs into the street. He sees his headphones running down the sidewalk....
The ad uses the tagline, "Energizer Lithium. Designed for digital."
The national campaign, in English and French, broke on Nov. 1.

thankful to this forum, i now have been able to track down the name to this song, I used to have it, before I lost all in a fire, but was unable to remember what it was called - to clarify to all it is actually a Prince Buster song recorded with the Maytals, also called Dog War & Jamaica Ska.
