Most people can agree that cleaning the house isn't the most fun activity and could be made a lot better. But a new Mr. Clean ad, which will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday, is attempting to portray cleaning less as a chore, and more as an activity that is anything but tedious. And the best part? After the Super Bowl airs, people will likely be dying to know what song is playing in the Mr. Clean commercial — because if they can't have a Mr. Clean of their own (who wants to do their own housework?), then they can at least have the song to listen to while they work.
In the hilarious ad, Mr. Clean is seen strutting into different rooms of a house where he "seductively" cleans different surfaces using various Mr. Clean products. His moves are seriously impressive and rival those of Justin Timberlake or perhaps even Channing Tatum (sorry, Channing). In the end, it turns out that "Mr. Clean" isn't actually Mr. Clean — but the partner of the woman in the commercial.
If you're looking to recreate this commercial in your own home — you're already dancing, don't deny it — then you're probably going to want to know what song is playing in the background of the ad.
Don't worry — you're not alone. Plenty of others are also dying to know what song Mr. Clean is strutting his stuff to, and are pleading with the company in the comments of the YouTube video, which has amassed nearly 3 million views. "What song is this? I need to try this out on bae," one commenter wrote. "I NEED TO FIND THE SONG. THE SONG," another said. The tune, with its smooth R&B melody, reminiscent of the boy bands from the 1990's is definitely not your average Mr. Clean jingle. (The song lyrics, in case you're wondering, are as follows: "Got what you want, got what you need. Be your dreamboat be your fantasy. I'll be your ecstasy." Scandalous.)
Unfortunately, not much information about the song seems to exist online. According to TV Commercial Songs, it appears that the song was made specifically for the commercial and is not available to purchase or download online (unless you're using that old-school YouTube mp3 hack). For now, seems as if people will have to watch the 30-second video on repeat, if they're looking to add the tune to their chores soundtrack.
But hey, the commercial is pretty great anyway. Is that really such a bad thing?
