I don’t know about you, but for me not a day goes by where I don’t wonder what The Brady Bunch would have been like if Danny Trejo had played Marcia and Steve Buscemi had played Jan. I mean, at the very least it would have made the show so much grittier.
Well, the folks at Snickers have made my wildest dream come true. They’ve created one of those “you’re not yourself when you’re hungry” ads for the Super Bowl in which Trejo, ever the badass, plays a Marcia Brady out for blood after Peter hits her (him?) in the face with a football. Then, after Carol Brady talks Trejo down from the edge and makes him eat a Snickers, Buscemi plays Jan having one of her typical Marcia-fuelled hissy fits.
It’s fantastic. And dammit, it makes me want to eat a Snickers. I guess I’ll have to go put on some pants and go get one.
(The Super Bowl is this Sunday, February 1, BTW.)
