Look Who's Playing A Mad Marilyn Monroe In This Super Bowl Ad

Those legs.

Millennials' sweet tooth be damned. Snickers appears to be courting older viewers of the Super Bowl with an ad featuring 60-year-old actor Willem Dafoe as a grumpy Marilyn Monroe.

As Snickers did last year with Danny Trejo mixing it up with "The Brady Bunch," this year's commercial spotlights the candy's ability to cure crankiness as part of its "You're Not You When You're Hungry" campaign. Marilyn (looking like Dafoe) complains about her iconic flying-skirt scene from "The Seven Year Itch." But all it takes is a bite of Snickers to get her back to being, well, Marilyn. Film history saved.
