Snickers Game for Betty White

Betty White, 88 year old American actress comedian and former television host, turned football player in a high profile commercial for Mars Snickers in the 2010 Super Bowl. White’s game appears sluggish until she takes a bite of a Snickers bar. “You’re not you when you’re hungry”, says the voiceover. The spot finishes with Abe Vigoda having a go. The spot is currently number one in the USA Today Ad Meter.
