Cindy Crawford is recreating her iconic 1992 Pepsi commercial for this year’s Super Bowl. The new iteration arrives 26 years after the original, and will costar her 18-year-old son, Presley Gerber. The full ad will debut on February 4, the night of the big game, but Pepsi already teased a photo from the TV spot.
Like she does in the original, Crawford sips a Pepsi at a gas station, but that signature white tank top is missing. This time, she’s sporting a denim shirt.
The new ad will also include footage from Michael Jackson’s dance-filled Pepsi commercial from 1984.
The supermodel, 51, was excited to work with her son for the project. “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,” she told the Associated Press yesterday. We’re still waiting for a joint ad between her and her 16-year-old daughter, Kaia, who’s become a breakout star on the runways.
Crawford is aware that her Pepsi spot has become a pop culture classic. “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 told AP. She’s even seen women channel the ad for an easy Halloween costume.
This isn’t Crawford’s first time revisiting the commercial, however. In 2016, she parodied the ad on The Late Late Show with James Corden, which featured the late-night host in the same tank top and cutoff denim shorts.
