PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – It’s been nearly 40-years since the iconic Super Bowl commercial featuring “Mean” Joe Greene and a kid with a bottle of Coke first aired.
Ahead of Super Bowl 50, the two are reuniting in a new video honoring the ad and their bond.
People Magazine has a clip of the segment which is slated to air during a Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials 2016 special on CBS.
Pittsburgh Steelers legend “Mean” Joe Greene and an all-grown-up Tommy Okon are reunited at a football stadium in Texas.
The legendary commercial debuted in October of 1979, but gained its fame after airing during Super Bowl XIV in 1980.
“I think the people that created it wrote a great commercial that really tells a story … that commercial’s kind of what Joe is: tough, football player, who’s a nice guy,” Greene said via People.
Greene gets sentimental when he and Okon re-enact the commercial in the new video. “Still special, after all these years,” he said.
Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials 2016 will air on KDKA-TV on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. ET.
