This health insurance ad by United Healthcare is inspired by cult classic Dirty Dancing and features the film's hit song 'Time of My Life.' Played at the end of the film, the song is the soundtrack to its iconic final dance sequence. Recreating the romantic moment, this commercial's actors dance in their kitchen while lip-syncing to one of their favorite songs.

The humorous ad appeals to Millennials with an appreciation for witty comedy as well as older audiences who are fans of Dirty Dancing and Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes' Time of My Life duet. What starts as a playful and romantic day between a couple goes humorously wrong as the wife attempts to pull of her favorite dance sequence.

Missing her husband's arms, the wife falls atop the couple's dining table, prompting a voice-over that promote United Healthcare's many service and virtual doctor visits.
