I'm sick of this commercial and this damned song.  I don't particularly like the original song (used in Sandals commercials, too), but this version really grates on my nerves.

Yes, it's hard to believe such an awful song could be dumbed down and worsened in any way, but they've managed to do it.

I believe it. The AdTards possess a "magical power". They can take the dumbest/worst thing in the universe and somehow make it dumber and worse.

They probably use them as a come-on to get all the older, fatter, more normal people to sign up for a Sandals vacation.  All those older, fatter people think they're going to be seeing lotsa young, goodlooking stuff on those beaches, and then they won't have to look at their own spouses.  The problem is, of course, when they get there, they end up seeing all the older, fatter people who also went there to see the younger, better-looking people.
 
But I like how these commercials show the goodlooking couples doing fun, romantic things together (like running on the beach or dancing).  The women seem to be enjoying the moment, while the men seem to be playing along simply 'cuz they know they have to if they want to get laid.  Or maybe I'm just projecting.

By the way, they frown on only wearing sandals.

I believe the song used in these commercials is actually "The Time (Dirty Bit)," a song by Black Eyed Peas that sampled/interpolated the original "(I've Had) The Time of My Life."

Believing that the Black Eyed Peas are a crime against music and a disgrace to good taste, I myself loathe this commercial.

Agreed.  Unfortunately, it's crap that sells millions. 

"The do it, do it all again" crap specifically reminds me of "I Gotta Feeling," which unbelievably has crossed over to soft-rock radio stations even.  AGGGHHH!

Were Sandals the ones who, in an earlier ad, also used the Kelly Clarkson (s)hit "A Moment Like This"?  (I do like Kelly Clarkson, but NOT THAT SONG.) I hate remakes of hit songs sung by nondescript singers for commercials, but I'd rather have this commercial use the original song "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" again.

I'm not an expert on this genre of music. I think this tune was from dirty dancing. It was never the time of my life.

I know it was from that 80s era of one sappy duet after another.

I've got an idea!!  Let's make an already sh*tty song even worse with a horrible remix!

For a commercial selling sandals, I don't actually see any in this commercial.

Just kidding. I know that they're not selling sandals. It's just a joke. RELAX. PUT DOWN THAT GUN!

Yep, it was from "Dirty Dancing." :) So was Eric Carmen's "Hungry Eyes," recently heard in an M&Ms commercial.  Was "She's Like the Wind" ever used in a commercial? 

I guess I have more tolerance for that era of music than the rest of you, because I'm an '80s kid and grew up on hearing those songs on adult contemporary radio.

Eric Carmen was much better when he fronted The Raspberries.  Of course, that's what I grew up on, so I'm biased, too.

Back to the commercial itself. Does Sandals require people to fill out a questionnaire before coming to their little island? Like;
How much do you make?
How old are you?
What do you weigh?
Do you and your spouse(mistress) like to run happily along beaches?
