Is retirement boring Phil Jackson? That’s not known for sure, but one of the greatest coaches in NBA history continues to get paid after hanging up his whistle. Only now, instead of getting paid as a coach, he’s making ends meet as a corporate pitchman.

Jackson starred in a recent Audi commercial and shows that he hasn’t quite given up coaching just yet. The commercial also serves a subtle reminder of the “Phil Jackson is smarter than you” aura that has followed Jackson for much of his career. Sort of.

See for yourself in the video below.
