Most Iconic Athlete Food and Drink Commercials
4. When it comes to Super Bowl commercials there are few more iconic than Coca-Cola's 1979 ad featuring "Mean Joe" Greene. It has all the makings of a classic — a catchy jingle, an indelible slogan, and a touching storyline.
5. In 2009, Coca-Cola enlisted Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu (also known for his Head & Shoulders ad) to star in a remake of the "Mean Joe" Greene commercial, this time for Coke Zero. The spot premiered during Super Bowl XLIII.
6. Yankee legend Yogi Berra is famous for his one-liners, which is a quality that the makers of Coors Light took advantage of while crafting this commercial (note actor Jason Alexander behind Yogi).
7. There's a surefire combination of surrounding a superstar with a crowd of kids plus Magic Johnson and his lovable antics in this 1982 commercial for 7-UP. It all makes for a 30-second snippet of TV gold.
