    Please help us put an end to our disagreement on this commercial! Is the girl correcting the guy singing the wrong lyrics? Or does she finally realize (or hear) the right line from the radio and sits back and says “oh” to herself-because she finally “gets” the lyrics…
    Please help me out here-
    We love this commercial-so clever…but I want the expensive steak dinner
    riding on this!! haha

      Hey Veronica

      I’m pretty certain that she finally realizes the right line after hearing her husband sing the correct words. Sounds like there is steak in someone’s future. :)
