MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- A Sallisaw native is celebrating the airing of a commercial he helped produce that was aired during the Super Bowl.

Richard Farmer's California-based company Happy filmed the one-minute Super Bowl spot for Coca-Cola's "Full Throttle" energy drink.

The ad featured a bouncing low-rider, sumo wrestlers, midgets a World War II-era tank and a dune buggy driving through fences to follow a truck carrying the drink.

Farmer graduated from Northeastern State University in 1993. His parents, George and Kathy Farmer, live in Muskogee.
