Coca Cola 2009 Super Bowl Commercial, Mean Troy
During Super Bowl LXIII, which took place on Feb. 1, 2009 where the Pittsburgh Steelers beat Arizona Cardinals, Coca-Cola aired its commercial featuring Troy Polamalu. As an injured Polamalu walks down the tunnel, a young boy approaches him to offer help. Mr. Polamalu turns down the help, indicating he did not need any help. As he continues to walk, the boy offers him his Coke Zero. Troy decides to take the drink. All of a sudden, a couple of men arrive and take the Coke Zero out of Troy’s hands. Revealing that they are the "Coke brand managers," they believe Coke Zero stole their taste. As they try to walk away, Troy runs after them and tackles one of the men to the ground while the other runs out to the car. The boy stands there to witness everything that goes on. Troy soon rips the guy’s shirt off and throws it to the kid as a souvenir.
