WTF? Very surprised to see this, but then I remembered that Sprite targets the "urban" audience. I guess Jon Jones and Rashad were busy?

Good for Davis, though.

I din't realize that sprite was popular among urban people.

I do live out in the country though and I've never seen it stocked at our local shop.

I imagine it is heavily stocked in certain urban areas

I love grape soda. I've seen less stores stocking Welch's grape soda recently and it had me all in a panic. lol I'm the only white/hispanic person I know that drinks it but that stuff is good.

Wow, that was actually kinda painful to watch.

Glad to see more tiers of fighters other than current/former title holders getting mainstream acknowledgement but... just wow.

DanTheWolfman - lol, what's with all the weird comments

Good for Phil, even better that they said his name, that is not that common.
Agreed. I hope the spot gets some good rotation.

The reason it's not common is because guys like Kobe, LeBron and Tiger Woods are actually famous. They had to call out Davis' name so people would know he's a real athlete. Phone Post

Sprite didn't have to drop his name. He could have been a random mma fighter or wrestler (esp with the Olympics here). Instead, they chose to build his brand as well as theirs. If the spot gets good response, that will likely lead to further appearences by Phil under the Sprite label.

I saw this on the NBA All Star dunk contest thing last night a bunch of times. Good for Phil.
