Supermodel Cindy Crawford is taking fans back in time by recreating her famous 1992 Pepsi Super Bowl promo with her son for this year’s (18) sports extravaganza.
The 51-year-old stunner wowed fans 26 years ago when she pulled up to a gas station in the soda commercial and stepped out of a red Lamborghini, wearing a white tank top and an iconic pair of denim cut-off shorts, to cool herself off with a cold can of Pepsi.
Now Crawford has revisited the TV spot, soundtracked by the song Just One Look by Doris Troy, for an updated promo, which will also feature her 18-year-old son, model Presley Gerber.
“Just as a mother, we drove to work together that day and we shared the same trailer,” Cindy gushed about getting to work with her boy. “And when he was doing his thing, I was just a proud mom watching from the sidelines, trying not to annoy him.”
The shoot brought back great memories for Cindy, as the original 1992 commercial “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 laughed to The Associated Press.
“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 ad, titled This Is The Pepsi, is part of the company’s Pepsi Generation campaign, celebrating the brand’s 120-year history in pop culture, and will air during the Super Bowl 52 telecast on 4 February (18). The promo will also include footage from previous spots fronted by Michael Jackson and Britney Spears, among others.
Crawford, who is married to George Clooney’s business partner Rande Gerber, is making plans to attend the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, Minnesota with her family, as her father lives in the city.
“I think probably that will be the highlight for me is just getting to see my dad,” she shared. “I took him to a Super Bowl before I had kids… and it’s not like he ever wanted to go to an awards show or something like that, but if I can take him to the Super Bowl, that’s a pretty cool thing for me to be able to do with my dad.”
Cindy and Presley aren’t the only models in the family – her daughter Kaia, 16, is also a rising star in the fashion world.
