Indoor trick shots? Jordan Spieth's fun new ad is especially appropriate on Day 1 at Oakmont
A new Jordan Spieth commercial for Coca-Cola was released on Thursday in conjunction with Spieth beginning his U.S. Open title defense. But it turned out to be more appropriate timing than the soda giant could have ever imagined.
Spieth was called off a soggy Oakmont course twice before finishing his opening nine holes of the tournament. And now, thanks to this ad, we can imagine how the 22-year-old star is passing the time during the delays:
Funny enough, the premise for the ad actually came about because Coca-Cola was having trouble finding time to shoot Spieth in good weather. Not sure what the original idea was, but it would have been tough to top this outcome.
ESPN's Darren Rovell also reports that the same guy who was involved in Tiger Woods' famed juggling commercial for Nike was also a part of this improvisation. Talk about a creative genius.
The new ad from this commercial legend and Spieth is certainly fun. But let's just hope we get to see Jordan and everyone else at Oakmont hitting more shots outdoors for the rest of the week.
