Danny Trejo Channels The Brady Bunch's Marcia in Super Bowl Ad

Originally posted 01/29/2015 06:05PM



Snickers' 2015 Super Bowl has gone back to the '70s with a character-actor twist on The Brady Bunch.

The latest riff on the candy bar's ongoing "You're Not You When You're Hungry" campaign enlists tough guy Danny Trejo in the role of Maureen McCormick's Marcia, whose face was famously pummeled by a football in a 1973 episode.

Trejo stars in the clip, showing off his trademark tattoos while he throws an ax-wielding tantrum while pretending to be the famous small-screen daughter.

Once Florence Henderson's mom Carol hands "Marcia" a Snickers and gets her oldest daughter back to her smiling self, Steve Buscemi shows up as Jan (originally played by Eve Plumb).

"The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union."

"I want people to know that being in your 70s, you don't stop having sex. You don't stop enjoying a partner. You don't stop enjoying life!" Henderson told PEOPLE after the performance.

The judges, by and large, enjoyed Henderson and Corky Ballas's gyrating performance. "Isn't that amazing for the oldest couple ever to do the rumba, and we were the sexiest?" Henderson said. "I love that!"
