Shaq Takes Vitaminwater To Races

Glaceau‘s VitaminWater was promoted at the Super Bowl with a spot featuring 7’ 2″ basketballer Shaquille O’Neal (Shaq) as a jockey, complete in silks and riding a horse owned by Glaceau President Mike Repole. The spot opens with Shaq at the rear, rapidly catching up with the field. He moves through to the front, using fair means and foul.
