This is the famous spot with "Mean" Joe Greene and Coke. It's a great spot and one of the best Super Bowl ads. One thing I would like to know. How did that kid make it to the locker room. Don't you think security would have stopped him?

Does anyone know where to get a copy of the hour long TV movie made off of that coke commercial? I have looked everywhere and no luck!
