Cindy Crawford’s list of career highlights is miles long, but one of the supermodel’s top memories is filming her iconic 1992 Pepsi commercial.
“This time of year it always gets featured in the roundups of the Best Super Bowl Commercials ever, and every January I revisit my original Pepsi spot that I just love because the music was perfect and the little boys were perfect and it was just one of those commercials that everyone loved and it made people happy,” she tells PEOPLE.
That sense of family and love is why Crawford is reuniting with the brand once again for the new “This Is The Pepsi” Super Bowl LII spot, which is part of the brand’s 2018 “Pepsi Generations” campaign celebrating all of its pop culture highlights through the decades (from Michael Jackson to Britney Spears!) while featuring its top drinks: Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Zero Sugar.
“This spot is a reminder of how much fun Pepsi has created for every generation,” Crawford shares. “It’s a look back at getting people excited for Pepsi now and the future. They’ve spent a long time creating all of these memorable moments and that’s exciting for me to because I really do consider myself part of the Pepsi family.”
For Crawford, this commercial was extra meaningful because it also brought together the generations in her own family. Her 18-year-old son Presley Gerber stars alongside her in the spot.
“To include now my next generation, Presley, just makes it that much more familial feeling,” she says. “I hope it gives people that warm, fuzzy feeling.”
Crawford says to work with Presley at this point in his career was “exciting.”
“We drove to work together, we shared a trailer, and just as a mom watching him perform, I was the proud stage mom standing by the monitor,” she says.
And Crawford’s 16-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber had a little FOMO when she heard about the commercial.
“I was saying to Kaia, ‘Presley and I are doing this commercial’ and she was like, ‘Wait Presley and you? What about me?,’” Crawford shared. “I said, ‘Your time will come honey don’t worry.’ I think it would be fun for her to get to really re-create my original spot.”
