Super Bowl 2012 Commercials: Amy Sedaris, Mean Joe Greene Together At Last

Amy Sedaris stars in this remake of the 1980 Mean Joe Greene Coke Commercial, but with a twist: Sedaris convinces Joe to accept some Downy Unstoppables, but when he tosses her his jersey, she has a different reaction than the little boy of the original ad.

The ads a winner because it covers every base. It's got the nostalgia factor, reenacting one of the most famous football commercials of all time. Sedaris pulls in "the kids" or whatever demographic is said to be fans of Sedaris. And there's a body function joke, the core of any good Super Bowl commercial. If they could have somehow worked in a fart or a guy getting kicked in the groin, it might have been an all-time great.

When Greene says this is the last commercial he's going to do, let's hope so. There's only so many times we can go back to this well and I'm pretty sure we're there.
