Watch Willem Dafoe Channel His Inner Marilyn Monroe (and Vice Versa) in New SNICKERS Super Bowl Ad

Ahead of the Super Bowl this Sunday, SNICKERS has offered up its entry for the big event, for their 'celebrity series'; veiny genius Willem Dafeo reenacts Marilyn Monroe's beyond-iconic, wind-blown moment from The Seven Year Itch.

In the ad, Maril-em (Dafeo) is shooting the "subway grate wind gust" scene in her white, William Travilla-made dress, and is feeling LESS THAN enthused about the necessity of the shot (most likely how the real Marilyn felt, as well)

"This is a disaster!" Willem yells. "Who's the genius who puts a girl in heels on a subway grate?"

TRUE.

Suddenly a P.A. hands her a SNICKERS, saying, "You get a little cranky when you're hungry."

After taking a bite, Marilyn transforms back into her vixen self (using actual, superimposed footage of her), saying, "Much better!" in her standard-breathy coo...

....and joyously allows the wind beneath her to ripple through her frock.

There's even a cameo by the legendary Eugene Levy, who plays the guy manning the wind turbine below Ms. Monroe.

"This scene will never make the cut!" He says.

Bravo, SNICKS!
