Cindy Crawford, 55, looks stunning as she recreates her 1992 commercial
As Cindy Crawford re-created the famous Pepsi commercial for a good cause, fans couldn’t keep calm.
Cindy Crawford re-created her famous Pepsi commercial for a good cause. The model, 55, donned daisies and whipped out a Pepsi can as she returned to the original Halfway House Cafe to pay tribute to her late brother Jeff, who died of cancer when he was three years old. Jeff was treated for leukaemia at the American Family Children’s Hospital in Wisconsin, and the reproduced photo is being used to generate cash for the hospital.
“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,” Cindy captioned an Instagram post with the recreated photo on Tuesday. “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 leukaemia.”
“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 model continued. “I also have to thank my dear friend, hairstylist @peter.savic who did the iconic hair for the original commercial… so I was thrilled he was able to be here for this version as well!” She also thanked her glam squad, including makeup artist Sam Visser and stylist Nicole Allowitz Skolnik. Cindy added, “I can’t wait to show you more.”
In 2015, the model opened up to Oprah Winfrey about her brother’s diagnosis while on Oprah’s Master Class on OWN, revealing that he was diagnosed at the age of 2. “I think when my parents first told us our brother was sick, we didn’t really understand what it meant,” Cindy said, referring to her and her sisters Chris and Danielle. “They didn’t use the word ‘cancer.’” She recalled a particularly heartbreaking moment during a time when she did not quite understand death.
