If you're childhood was anything like mine, there was probably a time in your life when you saw this classic Sprite Grant Hill commercial ten times a day on channels like MTV and Nickelodeon.  An all-time great in soft drink advertising, for sure.

It's definitely classic, but why are we showing it in a feature for shoe commercials?  Because in this commercial with Grant Hill dunking and quenching his thirst with an ice-cold can of Sprite, the shoes on his feet are a pair of the FILA Grant Hill I (now known as the 95).  In celebration of the iconic FILA model's re-release today, we couldn't resist giving it another look.  Enjoy, and remember: Obey Your Thirst.
