>> sure. it's 'Ice Cream Man' by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. you can find it on a lot of his greatest hits-type compilations, like 'The Beserkeley Years' or 'Home Of The Hits'. I don't know whether the ad uses the same version (originally from 1977) or a new recording.
>> Most people probably know Jonathan as the singing narrator from 'There's Something About Mary'. He's much less annoying than that, I swear! :)
>> A lot of his songs are love ballads like in 'Mary', but plenty of others are silly fun like 'Ice Cream Man'. Jonathan's a treasure.

: ^^ Good song, thanks for the help!
FYI, the version in the ad is actually from his live album 'Modern Lovers LIve', on Beserkely label, from 1977. There's a faster studio version on other album(s), but the live version stops and starts a few times, at different tempos.
