Rocky Balboa’s Lipton Brisk Iced Tea Commercial

Up until Rocky Balboa in 2006, this commercial was the first time Sylvester Stallone reprised his role as Rocky since the terrible film Rocky V. Lipton brand manager Gary Yoshioka praised Sly saying “He totally came back into his role.” And as he should have. Stallone got paid close to $1 million to lend his voice and character for this animation. With three lines of dialogue, that averages $50,000 a word, not including grunts. It sure does make up for taking scale in Cop Land.
