Scrub-a-dub-dub, the boys came out of the tub

OldCommercialFilter: Taiwanese soap commercial - help me find a video on the tubes!

When I was five and vacationing in Taiwan in the early 90's, I saw a soap commercial where a group of boys and grown men, all naked (thankfully, with their backs to the camera), scrub their butts with their towels and dance while singing:

"Loo lala loo lala loolaloolalay
Loola loo la loo la loolaloolalay
Loo lala loo lala loolaloolalay
Loola loo la loo la LAAAYYY!"

(Yeah, imagine my five-year-old expression when I saw this)

I kind of found the lyrics to the song unintentionally, but what I really want is the commercial itself. Unfortunately, I forgot what soap brand it was. So, Taiwanese MeFites, help me identify the soap and find a video (if possible) so I can flip my brother out. Yeah, he remembers the commercial too.

I remember this ad too! Sorry I can't help with your question at the moment but will hopefully get back to you.

It's not this one, by any chance, is it? (I think this is Japanese, though, so probably wrong one.)

Wow. We sang that same song in the bath when we were kids in Taiwan in the 70's. Never saw the ad though.

Now I'm going to have it in my head all weekend. Thanks.

@Oriole Adams: No... sorry, it was in Chinese. And there were men too. And they all were dancing throughout the whole ad. Nice try, though.
