Writer's Block: Commercial Appeal

What is your favorite commercial from your childhood? Bonus points if you include a video of it.
I can't find video of it, but there was a commercial in the 1960s they showed a few times during Saturday morning cartoons.

The setting: A group of kids, both male and female, run out of the house and onto an outdoor swingset -- only dressed in underwear. As they do this, some lady is singing the following to "Happy Birthday:"
Happy Underwear to you
Happy Underwear to you
Long wearing, easy caring
Happy Underwear to you.
I will never know where tehy found a bunch of kids willing to go running around in their undies on national television
