Cindy Crawford recreates iconic Super Bowl ad

Cindy Crawford is chugging a Pepsi again. The model has recreated her iconic 1992 Super Bowl ad for Pepsi, and it features her 18-year-old son.

According to the Associated Press, Crawford recently filmed the commercial, which will debut at Super Bowl 52 on Feb. 4. It includes her son, Presley Walker Gerber, as well as footage from Michael Jackson’s memorable Pepsi commercial.

Don’t remember the iconic commercial? Watch below.

The original features Crawford in a tank top and jean shorts — made from her own jeans she brought to the set that day — driving a Lamborghini and stopping at a gas station to buy a can of soda-pop. She said she felt the 1992 spot “became such a classic for so many reasons.”

“It was one of those moments in my career that when I walked down the street, people were like, ‘Pepsi!’ Or I’d be at a bar and people would send me over a Pepsi,” she said, laughing in a phone interview with the AP Wednesday. “And it’s funny because during Halloween a lot of women will dress up as me in that commercial. It’s like an easy Halloween costume.”

The 51-year-old said she didn’t hesitate to recreate the ad 26 years later, especially since she was able to work with her son, “Just as a mother, we drove to work together that day and we shared the same trailer. And when he was doing his thing, I was just a proud mom watching from the sidelines, trying not to annoy him.”

The new Super Bowl ad, dubbed “This Is The Pepsi,” is part of the company’s “Pepsi Generation” campaign honoring the brand’s 120-year history in pop culture.
