Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban is a man of many talents. Not only is he one of the best college football coaches on the face of the planet, Saban is also a budding star on the silver screen.
Okay, that may be a bit of a stretch, but Nick Saban did recently flex his acting chops for a local Mercedes-Benz commercial. The commercial was for Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham.
Conveniently enough, that is the dealership that Saban co-owns.
Saban is seen driving around in a Mercedes SLS — notice the color? Yeah, that’s crimson. Well played, coach. — as the car does some slick handling through a tunnel and down the street.
At the end of the commercial, the driver takes off his helmet for the big reveal: IT IS NICK SABAN!
Saban then so eloquently states, “Woo! Success is the result of great planning, preparation and execution.”
The “woo” could use a little bit of work — perhaps some more Ric Flair, um, flair — but it is a start. Perhaps Saban is just getting comfortable in front of the camera so he can have a successful television broadcasting career when he walks away from coaching.
Check out the commercial below.
