WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – It’s one of the most famous commercials of all time and it was filmed in Mount Vernon, according to lohud.com.
“Mean Joe” Greene hobbles through the tunnel when a young boy offers him a Coke. Greene downs the soda like a champion then returns the favor by tossing the boy his game jersey.
The boy, an actor named Tommy Okon, was 9 when the 1979 commercial was shot. Thirty-seven years later, he lives in Yonkers, according to lohud.com.
In a two-hour special Tuesday called the Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials 2016, CBS reunited Greene, a former Pittsburgh Steeler, with Okon, according to lohud.com.
