M&Ms 2013 Super Bowl Commercial – What’s the Song?

M&Ms and meat loaf might not appear to go together well at first glance — at least, not in the ordinary course of everyday dining. But the two disparate foods came together in perfect harmony in an entertaining commercial during the Super Bow Sunday night (Feb. 3).
The clever spot featured a red M&M — complete with white gloves — seated at the piano, where he began to earnestly sing Meat Loaf‘s overwrought 1993 hit ‘I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)’ while scenes played detailing exactly what he’d be willing to do for his love, which included carrying her bags while she’s shopping, and painting her toenails.
But the funniest part of the commercial came at the song’s dramatic “But I won’t do that” refrain, where the candy-coated chocolate treat found that the course of true love is more difficult than he had realized. He was forced to lay down the law as to what he wouldn’t do as his lady tried to get him into first a pinata, then the oven before she and two other girls tried to eat him — causing the hapless candy to scream, “It hurts, but I kinda like it!” before hiding underneath the piano and crying.
