NEW YORK, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Former Pittsburgh Steelers lineman "Mean" Joe Greene says he will reprise his role as himself in a Downy commercial during Sunday's Super Bowl.

The football Hall of Fame member will be pitching Downy Unstoppables In-wash Scent Booster by accepting a clean and refreshing-smelling jersey from a small kid rather than the bottle of Coke he was given while he limped to the locker room after a bruising game in the classic Coca Cola ad 22 years ago.

"It didn't take much to convince me," Greene said in a written statement.

The Los Angeles Times said Downy received permission from Coca Cola headquarters to revive the character in the new ad, which will air during the Super Bowl pre-game show.
