MasterCard Bodyguard

MasterCard features A-Team tough guy Mr T in the latest Priceless television commercial. Mr. T looks as tough as ever (albeit a little older), standing, arms crossed, beside a woman as she goes to the dry cleaners, the beauty salon, and the grocery store. The A-Team tough guy dares any punks to step to his charge, standing in as a symbol for MasterCard’s great consumer protections.
