Former Steelers linebacker Mean Joe Greene starred in one of the most famous commercials in TV history.

The Coca-Cola ad, which featured 9-year-old Tommy Okon offering a tired and worn out Greene his soda and then Greene throwing Okon his game-worn jersey, first hit the air in 1979 and was given a boost during the Super Bowl in 1980.

CBS recently reunited the duo, who talked about why the spot was loved by so many people for its "Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials 2016" show that will air on Feb. 7.
