House of pain - Jump around

This track was made famous by being used in an advert for Caffreys beer. Like loads of music it received a new lease of life through the power of TV. In the advert it show a typical Irish bar, just the sort you find franchised in nearly every city in the world, heaving with people (pre the smoking ban) jumping up and down in time to the beat. For me it was how I imaging an Irish pub would be, full of happy, beautiful people, having a good time. A couple of years later and I found myself wrapped around a number of pints of Guinness and staggering down Temple Bar in Dublin (one of my favorite city's) when as I passed the open door way of a jam packed pub and out of the speakers this tune came pounding out, and just like the advert they all jumped around! It was just one of those moments that stops time, and when ever I hear the tune I’m back there.
