In the famous 1979 Coca-Cola commercial in which Greene appeared, the child playing opposite him was 9-year-old Tommy Okon. Greene later admitted that three days were required to do the commercial because, after downing the entire bottle, Greene kept belching following the words "Hey kid" (after which he threw young Okon his jersey). In all, he drank 24 bottles for the takes during the three-day shoot.
