Steelers HOF ‘Mean’ Joe Greene’s Coca-Cola Commercial to Return

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens

It’s a commercial that propelled a legendary player into another stratosphere. That player is Steelers all-time great ‘Mean’ Joe Greene, and the commercial is the famous Coca-Cola television spot that first aired during the MLB playoffs in 1978.

AdWeek reports that the famous spot, which is 60 seconds, will air during the NASCAR Darlington Southern 500 race in South Carolina.

The commercial broke barriers for all the right reasons, and made Greene a legend in his own time. If you’ve ever seen ‘A Football Life’ on Greene, he speaks quite a bit about the spot, and even to this day has a relationship with the actor who was the child at the time in the commercial.

If you don’t remember, or have never seen the spot – check it out below.

On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others.

    The Darlington Southern 500 race aired last Sunday night . Two days ago to be exact . The commercial was shown twice during the broadcast . Once at the beginning and once at the end of the race . The last one was shown around 11pm so unless you caught the first one most people never saw it .
