Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi Are Marcia and Jan Brady in Snickers’ Super Bowl Ad

While my favourite Snickers ad will probably always be the one starring Joe Pesci and Don Rickles, a new ad to be broadcast during this year’s Super Bowl may be a close second.

Using the successful formula of; “you’re not you when you’re hungry”, BBDO, New York recreated a clip from the classic Brady Bunch episode where Marcia gets hit in the nose with a football thrown by her brother. In the updated clip, Danny Trejo plays the cranky Marcia and Steve Buscemi makes a surprise appearance as the oft-neglected Jan.

Be sure to watch the “Making Of” video embedded below to see how the director Jim Jenkins and O Positive recreated the Brady’s living room, and how they were able to map the faces of Mike and Carol Brady onto the faces of two modern-day stand-ins.
