Cindy Crawford recently stunned fans after recreating her popular 1992 Pepsi commercial. The supermodel returned to the set of the original advertisement at the Halfway Cafe gas station in California and posed with a Pepsi can in front of a red Cadilac Eldorado.
The 55-year-old looked charming as she donned the signature wardrobe with luscious hair, silver hoop earrings, a white tank top and classic daisy dukes blue shorts. She took to Instagram to post the revamped picture, which left her followers swooning over her evergreen looks.
The iconic Pepsi commercial has been re-enacted several times over the years. However, the latest recreation has been made to raise funds for cancer research at the American Family Children’s Hospital where Cindy Crawford’s brother was once treated for leukemia. The mother-of-three wrote:
“It’s always a pleasure and a thrill to work with my friend @davidyarrow … and even more so when it’s for a good cause. We returned back to the original Halfway House from the famous @pepsi commercial I did in 1992 to recreate the moment (with a David Yarrow twist) in hopes of raising funds for the American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison Wisconsin where my brother was treated for leukemia. So far, with the help of David’s gallery network across the globe supporting the art and its sales — we’ve already raised 1 million dollars for the cause.”
The original 1992 commercial saw 25-year-old Cindy Crawford arriving at the gas station in a red Lamborghini and getting a can of soda from the vending machine. The commercial, called Two Kids, also featured two young boys who looked at the model in awe as she enjoyed a sip of her drink.
Cindy Crawford returned to the venue to reprise the commercial for the company in 2002. She also recreated the ad for a spoof with James Corden in 2016. She also appeared in a new version of the commercial for the 2018 Super Bowl Pepsi ad.
The 2018 commercial featured both the model and her 22-year-old son, Presley Gerber. The mother-son duo arrived at the gas station as the latter grabbed a can of Pepsi from the vending machine this time.
In her latest photoshoot, most of the setting remained unchanged except for the cars and two wolf-like dogs sitting atop her vehicle. The model dubbed the latter a “David Yarrow twist”.
The recreated post has amassed more than 120K likes, with several fans and celebrities appreciating the initiative and also praising Cindy Crawford for her stunning fashion sense.
