In 2021, it's never been more important to stay healthy, and one way to do that is by giving your body all the resources it needs to keep operating at full capacity. In other words, you should be taking multivitamins — at least according to the folks who make the One A Day line of vitamin products (of course,others have differing opinions).Bayer introduced One A Day in 1940, and their latest commercial is here to remind you that their vitamins are still full of nutrients.

If you haven't yet cut the cord or enabled an ad-blocker, you've probably seen the recent 15-second TV spot, "One Body." It's a series of quick shots of all sorts of people, highlighting all the things about them that benefit from One A Day, like brains, hair, heart health, and more. Everyone is happy, just jazzed to be alive, and the ad gives exactly the sense of wellbeing and vigor that you'd want to put forth in selling a health product. In short, nobody in the ad is on the fence about One A Day.

Giving the ad even more of a "wellness" vibe is a joyous song that may sound familiar. Here's all the info about that song, before it gets stuck in your head.

"One Body" is the name of the commercial and the song

The track is an edited version of Nina Simone's 1968 song "I Ain't Got No/I Got Life," which was really Simone's mashup of two songs from the musical Hair, "Ain't Got No" and "I Got Life." The first part of Simone's song is a bleak collection of verses about disenfranchisem*nt and alienation, in material and emotional forms. The song appears to end on a downer note before Simone segues into the celebratory "I Got Life," a body-positive affirmation of personal agency. The commercial uses the lyrics "Got my hair, got my head, got my brains, got my ears, got my heart, got my soul, got my mouth, got my smile." In context, Simone is listing the things that can never be taken away from her.

Simone was a civil rights icon as well as an iconic singer, and "I Ain't Got No/I Got Life" was an inspiring anthem in her time. Though a recent biopic starring Zoe Saldana was not exactly well-received, Simone's legacy remains untarnished. The same goes for the song itself, which has been used in other ad campaigns, like a series for Müller Yogurt.
