Snickers puts its stamp on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

On the heels of the candy bar brand's "Brady Bunch" Super Bowl spot, Snickers has reached into Greek mythology for a new twist on the tagline, "You're Not You When You're Hungry."

The ad by BBDO New York for the Mars candy brand is on the back Sports Illustrated's annual Swimsuit Edition with cover model Hannah Davis.

The Snickers ad mimics many subtle visual cues from the front — with an overt twist. Thanks to some digital spell-casting, the model is transformed into the mythological Medusa.
