Editor's Pick

Arnold Palmer, who died on Sunday at the age of 87, was a huge commercials star, but perhaps no ad of his was better than this one from ESPN Sportscenter and Wieden & Kennedy New York.

The 2009 spot sees Arnold Palmer in the ESPN cafeteria making an "Arnold Palmer" -- the iced tea and lemonade drink that was named in his honor. The late Stuart Scott and colleague Scott Van Pelt are standing by watching, and simply comment: "That was awesome."
