The world mourns the loss of legendary Yankees catcher Yogi Berra, who passed away at the age of 90 this past week. Yogi was best known as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, catchers to play the game, not to mention a manager for several years.
However, one of Berra's most overlooked talents? Commercial superstar. Take a trip down memory lane with Yogi's best plugs.
Even the Aflac Duck recognizes greatness...or perhaps just confusion...as Yogi unleashes three Aflac-centric one-liners in the span of 30 seconds.
Miller Lite (1987)
Ever wonder how George Costanza really got that job with the Yankees on Seinfeld? After this commercial for the famous "Great Taste, Less Filling" beverage, he was able to put Yogi down as a reference.
Puss 'N Boots
On the field, Yogi and Whitey Ford combined to form one of the greatest duos in baseball history. Off the field, Yogi took good care of Whitey, who apparently masqueraded as a cat in between starts, with Puss 'N Boots cat food.
The famous chocolate drink gave us one of Yogi's best ever one-liners. When asked by a fan if Yoo-hoo was hyphenated, he famously replied "No, m'am, it isn't even carbonated!"
Not many could get out of Yao Ming's shadow. But we've known for a long long time that Yogi isn't exactly most people
Rest in Peace, Yogi. We'll miss you.
