Alabama's Head Coach Used To Drive A Coke Delivery Truck, So The Company Made Him This Ad

Everyone, including Coke Zero, is talking about Alabama’s more-than-decisive victory against Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship last night.

It turns out that Alabama’s head coach Nick Saban used to drive a Coca-Cola delivery truck to make ends meet when starting out in his coaching career. So Coke Zero released a congratulatory ad to celebrate Saban’s victory.

Atlanta-based MELT made the commercial.
