Apparently the creatives behind this sad sack of an ad for Downy's Unstopables, think it's a quality idea to rip off a classic Super Bowl spot and make it suck. Mean Joe Greene sells his soul along with Amy Sedaris in this 30-second spot. Sure, it's a pre-game ad, but that doesn't mean you should half-ass it. Plus, Coke already went there in 2009 for its Coke Zero with "Mean Troy". Oh Grey, you should really be ashamed.

Or see the 2009 version for Coke Zero:
It will be interesting to see if the folks at Coca-Cola bring their legal sharks into action on this one.
