From CBC - January 12, 2018

Cindy Crawford is heading back to the Super Bowl: The model has recreated her iconic 1992 Super Bowl ad for Pepsi, now featuring her 18-year-old son.

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.

There is a six-second teaser on YouTube, but fans will have to wait for the main event to view it in its entirety.

The 51-year-old said she did not 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," she said in a phone interview Wednesday.

The new Super Bowl ad, dubbed This Is The Pepsi,is part of the company's "Pepsi Generation" campaign honouring the brand's 120-year history in pop culture.

The original features Crawford in a tank top and jean shortsmade from her own jeans she brought to the set that daydriving a Lamborghini and stopping at a gas station to buy a can of soda. She said she felt the 1992 spot "became such a classic for so many reasons."
