Super Bowl Appearance Date: Jan. 20, 1980
By 1980, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle "Mean" Joe Greene had established himself as one of the baddest dudes in football.
Greene was a 10-time Pro Bowl selection with a nasty mean streak and an extremely physical style of play.
Coca-Cola decided to show the softer side of Greene's persona in this ad from Super Bowl XIV.
The commercial won a Clio Award for being one of the best ads of the year.
Like many of the ads on this list, the ad has also been heavily parodied in the years since its initial airing.
Also, remind me to never challenge Joe Greene to chugging contest.
