Front9: Our Five Favorite Arnold Palmer Commericals

Posted at 1:29 AM by Mike Walker | Categories: Arnold Palmer

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are co-starring in a new Nike commercial, but Arnold Palmer remains the game's greatest pitchman, as he proved once again with his recent spot with Marshall Faulk to promote Tiger Woods's latest video game. ("Marshall, I know you're retired" Palmer jibes as Faulk practices bunker shots, "but I didn't know you were going to spend so much time on the beach.")

While you might know Palmer is the king of iced tea, did you know that he's endorsed a Palmer flower bouquet from FTD and Arnold Palmer Christmas trees, and appeared in a commercial with O.J. Simpson?

Here are our five favorite Arnold Palmer commercials:

Arnold Palmer and Marshall Faulk: EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 (2012)

 

Arnold Palmer, Scott Van Pelt and Stuart Scott: This Is SportsCenter (2009)

Arnold Palmer's Caddie Giveaway: Pennzoil (1988)

Arnold Palmer and David Doyle (Bosley from "Charlie's Angels"): Mercury Cougar (1968)

Arnold Palmer, O.J. Simpson and Jamie Lee Curtis: Hertz (1988)
