After last week’s ‘Happy Birthday Mr President’ teaser, comes the real thing: Marilyn recreates the ‘subway scene’ from The Seven Year Itch, with a little help from Snickers (and Willem Dafoe.) The commercial was made for this weekend’s Superbowl, reports Adweek, and you can watch it now on Youtube.
“‘I have to admit playing a Hollywood bombshell is a new challenge for me,’ Dafoe said in a statement. ‘But as a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe, I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a walk in her shoes and famous white dress.’
Snickers brand director Allison Miazga-Bedrick added: ‘It doesn’t get much bigger—or better—than combining one of the most legendary moments in movie history from the iconic Marilyn Monroe with some modern day icons of our own.'”
