Ads That Rock: What's That Song in...The Bing Commercial?

Suddenly have an urge for folksy foot-stomping — and a trip to Hawaii? Blame the Lumineers.

The Denver trio's clap-happy ''Ho Hey,'' featured in the Aloha State-set search-engine ad, has incited its own rush of searches online. It's a welcome break for frontman Wesley Schultz, whose childhood dream was to be an NBA star: ''Basically, all I had was a jump shot,'' he tells EW, ''and that wasn't even that good. So I started playing guitar.'' The band is on the road this summer to support its self-titled debut and will open for the Civil Wars in the U.K. this fall — not a bad jump after all.
