"2013 Get Happy Volkswagen Game Day Commercial" 
This Super Bowl commercial from Volkswagen begins with people talking about how much they hate Mondays during an elevator ride up to their job. A man with a Jamaican accent behind them says "No worries, mon. Everyting will be alright." When we see who was talking, it is surprisingly just some white guy - clearly not Jamaican. Later that day at work, this guy is getting angry and banging on the vending machine. The same guy comes in with his accent and tells him everything will be okay. Whether it's complimenting the coffee, telling a woman who's having a bad day to turn her frown upside down, or participating in a meeting he's always in a good mood, and always talking in this Jamaican accent. One of his co-workers actually asks to verify that he is from Minnesota because they don't understand why he talks this way. We finally learn when he offers to put a smile on everyone's face. He takes people for a ride in his new VW Beetle. When they get back, everyone is talking in the same accent and is happy and smiling too.

I hate Mondays. 
Yeah, they're the worst. 
No worries, man. Everything will be alright. Ha ha ha, yeah, mon. 
Come on. 
Don't fret, me brother. Sticky bun come soon. 
Yeah. Wicked coffee, Mr. Jim. 
Julia, turn the frown the other way around. 
Hey Dave, you're from Minnesota right? 
Yes, I. The Land of Ten Thousand Lakes. The Gopher State. 
So in conclusion, things are pretty dismal. 
You know what this room needs? A smile. Who want to come with I? 
You guys are three minutes late. 
Don't be no cloud on a sunny day. 
Yeah, chill Winston. 
Sir? 
Respect bossman. 
That's the power of German engineering. 
 
(Lyrics) 
Traveling along, there's a song that we're singing 
Come on get happy 
C'mon get happy 
We'll make you happy
