The connection?

I think the basic idea of this commercial is that with a debit card you can buy also music online...

people use debit visa -> buy music online -> more people go funky

I think the connection here is that music is listened to pretty much everywhere and the visa card can be used in most establishments.

Yay, more people singing a long with a kitsch song. WTF? ...must be a horrible client, because the line is wide-open and the agency doesn't suck, usually.

his "FUNKY" word in the end of the V/O isnt funky at all besides that this kinda of visual edit with ppl singing the same song have been done since the dawn of time

The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time

I think it was great too. The whole idea was to remember. Key #1 in advertising. The song is catchy, easily remembered, and the link was to Visa. It would appeal to many different people. Good job.
