Please, somebody has to remember these commercials.
About a year and a hlaf ago on comedy central.
There's a jazz quartet playing while someone's life falls apart.
I think there were three of them; a guy in an elevator, a guy
comes home to find his wife in bed with the plumber, and _____?
I can't remember the third one. It's driving me nuts.

"You're on the move, straight to the top.
You're head of the pack, you're king of the show.
You're gonna win!"
(there are more lines, but I'm not sure what they are)

If you know what the third one is about, PLEASE post. I can see it,
but it's just not clear. Arrrgh!

A man in an electric chair.

The full version is:

You're gonna win, you're gonna go


You're head of the pack, you're king of the show
You're on the move, straight to the top

You're way out in front, you'll never stop
You're gonna win...
You're gonna wiiiiinnnn!!!

The third one was the guy in the electric chair... as they got ready to
pull the switch on him, the jazz quartet popped up and started playing.
Hope I helped...

<el clipo>

A man in the electric chair.

He even started snapping his fingers before they pulled the switch.

I think this one was the first ad, and came right after the "We're all
gonna die someday, watch Comedy Central" series.

Guy in an electric chair (my personal favorite).
