Snickers' Super Bowl commercials have become a thing of legend. And the big game just wouldn't be the same without a new one. Today, we get our first look at the latest edition in this long-standing Ad campaign. And it doesn't disappoint. The TV spot features two very big, albeit very different Hollywood legends.
