Snickers is giving fans a treat in advance of Super Bowl 50 – an early look at a commercial set to debut during the big game.

The commercial, which is part of the “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign, features what one of Hollywood’s most iconic and recognizable moments would have looked like if Marilyn Monroe was feeling hungry.

The 30-second spot is based on a scene from the classic 1955 film “The Seven Year Itch,” which starred Marilyn Monroe.

But there’s a twist you won’t be able to miss – Willem Dafoe in a dress. Dafoe appears in the commercial as a cranky Monroe, high heels and all.

Eugene Levy also makes an appearance as a stage hand who’s charged with the task of making Marilyn Monroe’s flap in the wind above a subway grate during the movie’s most iconic scene.

You can check out the 30-second spot below.
