Snickers 'Super Bowl Teaser' by BBDO New York

Tune into this very special episode of the 'The Brady Bunch,' starring Danny Trejo of 'Machete'

This teaser for Snickers' Super Bowl ad looks like a rerun of "The Brady Bunch" — at first. Then a quick cut to Danny Trejo makes it look like something else.

Trejo is dressed like characters he has played in "Machete" and "Sons of Anarchy" and is combing his hair like Marcia Brady.

The spot continues BBDO New York's campaign for Snickers' "You're Not You When You're Hungry." The series of ads feature a well-known character actor in an unfamiliar role. Upon eating a Snickers, the actor transforms into a different person.

Danny Trejo does not turn into Marcia in the teaser, but don't touch that dial: If the teaser generates 2.5 million social media engagements before kick-off of Super Bowl XLIX, Snickers will release the full 30-second spot.
