Yep, it's 'Classical Gas' by Mason Williams. Don't know who plays the banjo version though.

Did a bit of searching and what from I can see that banjo version of Classical Gas is played by Roy Clark.

No idea who Roy Clark is but that's what the internet is telling me. Hope that helps.

As far as I can tell this is the same track as used in the ad...

It's by Janna Kim, a stunningly talented banjo prodigy from Uzbekistan.

There's also a theory that the version in the ad is by Area Code 615

Bobby Thompson

That's right. The version in the advert is the original by Bobby Thompson who was one of the session musicians who came together to form Area Code 615.

An mp3 can be downloaded from Bobby's page on
