Thirty years after starring in what some consider to be the best sports commercials of all time, former Steeler Mean Joe Greene will be handed the 1979 Clio award. The award–given for excellence in advertising–will be presented to Greene at Heinz Field on Sunday, when the Steelers host the Bengals.

One of the more fun things about the presentation is that Greene will be reunited with Tommy Okon, who was the 9-year-old kid in the ad. Surely Okon is old enough now to appreciate the dangers of glass bottles in a stadium, especially with a large, angry dude limping around with one shoe off. The full ad is on after the jump.
