Mountain Dew and Bryan Cranston remake The Shining in their 2020 Superbowl ad.

In it, we see the actor re-create the iconic scene where Jack Nicholson’s character breaks down the bathroom door with an axe on a mad rampage. It’s one of cinema’s most iconic moments and it’s really weird to see Bryan remix it in this ad. Instead of delivering the classic line “Here’s Johnny”, he says “Here’s Mountain Dew Zero!”. Hmm, doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

The message of the ad is that zero sugar Mountain Dew is just as good as the original. This commercial looks to show us that this new version of The Shining, is also just as good as the original. The jury’s out on that one, but we’ve got to say it’s hilarious to see Bryan dressed up as the two creepy twins in any case. What did you make of the video? Is this one of the best Superbowl commercials of 2020? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
