Bryan Cranston Parodies The Shining in Mt. Dew Super Bowl Ad

Bryan Cranston The Shining

Bryan Cranston is doing his best Jack Nicholson for a Mt. Dew Super Bowl ad, spoofing The Shining with Tracee Ellis Ross. You can see the ad below for Mt. Dew Zero Suger, which sees Cranston take on Nicholson’s Jack Torrance while Ross plays Shelley Duval’s Wendy. Fortunately, this one ends up a little less horrifying for Wendy than the film. We also get a shot of the elevator sequence (now green instead of red) and Cranston as the Grady Twins.

The ad will play during the Super Bowl this coming weekend.
