I found an article about the song, which is credited to Nas.  This certainly stretches the limits of fair use/sampling as far as I'm concerned:

It's been a couple of months, but...

The Troggs' Wild Thing for Geico

The Zombies' Time of the Season for Coors

Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass for Ford F-150 trucks

The Isley Brothers' It's Your Thing for H & R Block's do-it-yourself software

And two for Applebees that actually made some sense -- The Four Tops'
Sugar Pie Honey Bunch, and Baby One More Time by Britney Spears
for the return of their all-you-can-eat riblets.
