What's the song in the new Nike commercial?

Search: nobody the office

Why: In the season premiere of "The Office," they lip synched (sanched?) and danced to that song. I thought it was old, but now it's in a Nike commercial. What gives?!
Answer: It's "Nobody But Me" by The Human Beinz! The song was originally released in 1968 as a reworking of a song that had been originally recorded by The Isley Brothers in 1963. This version has also been in Kill Bill: Volume 1 and The Depahted.

Here's the Isley Brothers version:

The More You Know: Were you just wondering if the Isley Brothers were really brothers, they were:
  • O'Kelly "Kelly" Isley (1937-1986)
  • Rudolph "Rudy" Isley (b. 1939)
  • Ronald "Ronnie" Isley (b. 1941)
  • Vernon Isley (1942-1955; at 13, he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle)
  • Ernie Isley (b. 1952)
  • Marvin Isley (1953-2010)
and their cousin
  • Chris Jasper (b. 1951)
The Righteous Brothers were not really brothers, but one of their real last name was Medley.
