Novel writing query

I know that if you insert lyrics into a story you will have to obtain the permission from the copyright owners of the lyrics, but how do you go about copyright if you are inserting advertisement copy?

For an example, if I have a character driving around town while listening to the radio, and then listens to a jingle by Hotlink (I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now), is it necessary for me to contact the advertisement company that came up with that jingle if I want to include it into the story? Usually, how do you go about this?
