A former St. Joseph boys basketball standout will get a shining moment on professional football’s biggest night.
Chris Conroy, a 2005 St. Joseph graduate, is starring in a Super Bowl commercial for Mercedes Benz’s A-Class model.
In the ad, which was posted online Thursday and is titled “Say The Word,” Conroy showcases god-like powers, making the world do its bidding: changing a traffic sign, destroying a parking ticket and making an ATM rain money.
The 60-second spot also includes appearances from Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, Ludacris, and stand-ins for Lassie and the killer whale from “Free Willy.”
St. Joseph boys basketball coach Kelly Robinson said the ad was scheduled to run in the second quarter.
