Muhammad Ali, Paralympian Amy Purdy Make Toyota's Super Bowl Ad One To Remember

Muhammad Ali and Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy provide a double shot of inspiration in one of Toyota's Super Bowl ads.

In the spot, Purdy, who won bronze in Sochi and later was a finalist on "Dancing With The Stars," drives a new Camry to complement a jam-packed lifestyle, while Ali's "How Great I Am" speech plays in the background.

Ali, the three-time heavyweight boxing champ, used the rhyming verse to predict victory before he fought the favored George Foreman in 1974's so-called "Rumble in the Jungle."

"I've done something new for this fight," Ali says. "I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale; handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick; I'm so mean I make medicine sick."

In the final line, Ali declares, "I'm gonna show you how great I am."

"We’re very proud of the message our commercial sends about not only making bold choices, but living a bold life," Toyota marketing representative Jack Hollis said in a statement.

The ad will air during the first quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday.
