  • The original featured Cindy wearing a white tank top and blue jean shorts with big hoop earrings on
  • She was driving a Lamborghini and then stops at a gas station for a can of soda which she sucks down
  • And then in 2002 she was asked to appear in a very similar ad, this time for Diet Pepsi  
  • Cindy recreated the iconic ad to raise funds for the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, where her late brother was treated for leukemia
  • Tragically, Jeffery died of childhood leukemia when he was three-years-old


Cindy Crawford lived up to her supermodel status as she slipped back into a white tank top and her blue denim Daisy Duke shorts to recreate her iconic 1992 Pepsi Super Bowl ad.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the catwalk queen, 55, showed off her age-defying figure in the photoshoot, taken by photographer David Yarrow, to raise funds for the American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, where her late brother Jeff was treated for leukemia.

Posing by a red vintage car, Cindy wowed as she once again donned silver hoop earrings and styled her hair into a big bouncy blow out.

The shoot was set at the Halfway House Cafe, where Cindy shot the famous commercial. Two wolves sat in the retro supercar as Cindy fuelled up on gas.

Crawford shared what the new Pepsi experience was like. ‘It’s always a pleasure and a thrill to work with my friend @davidyarrow,’ began the Versace model.

Strike a pose: Slipping into a pair of red stiletto heels, Cindy looked just as good as she did in 1992 as she displayed toned arms, long legs and very small waistline in the tiny shorts and low-scoop vest

‘And even more so when it’s for a good cause. We returned back to the original Halfway House from the famous @pepsi commercial I did in 1992 to recreate the moment (with a David Yarrow twist) in hopes of raising funds for the American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison Wisconsin where my brother was treated for leukemia.’

Crawford was born in DeKalb, Illinois, and raised with her two sisters, Chris and Danielle. Their brother Jeffery died of childhood leukemia at age three.

Cindy continued: ‘So far, with the help of David’s gallery network across the globe supporting the art and its sales — we’ve already raised 1 million dollars for the cause.’

Important cause: Crawford wants to raise funds to help the hospital where her late brother Jeffery was treated for childhood leukemia. He tragically died aged three

She is generous: Crawford shared what the new Pepsi experience was like. ‘It’s always a pleasure and a thrill to work with my friend @davidyarrow,’ began the Versace model

Close to her heart: ‘And even more so when it’s for a good cause. We returned back to the original Halfway House from the famous @pepsi commercial I did in 1992 to recreate the moment (with a David Yarrow twist) in hopes of raising funds’

Devastating: Crawford (right) was born in DeKalb, Illinois, and raised with her two sisters, Chris and Danielle. The family tragically lost their brother Jeff when he was three

She then credited the members of her glam squad.

‘I also have to thank my dear friend, hairstylist @peter.savic who did the iconic hair for the original commercial… so i was thrilled he was able to be here for this version as well!’ said the wife of Rande Gerber.

‘Thanks also to @samvissermakeup for makeup and @allowitzstyles for styling. I think we nailed it! Such a fun day –– I can’t wait to show you more. More on stories xo.’

Stars praised her move. Reese Witherspoon said, ‘Truly gorgeous ! And for a great cause ❤️.’ Helena Christensen said, ‘❤️cool in every way.’

Thrice before: Cindy seen far left in 1992, then in another ad in 2002 and on the far right she is seen in 2018

The winner? Some say that Cindy looked her very best in the original 1992 ad while others prefer a more mature Crawford

The original featured Crawford in a tank top and jean shorts – made from her own jeans she brought to the set that day – driving a Lamborghini and stopping at a rural gas station to buy a can of soda.

Two young boys in a nearby field can be seen watching on in awe and amazement as the beauty guzzles the can in one go.

‘It was one of those moments in my career that when I walked down the street, people were like, “Pepsi!” Or I’d be at a bar and people would send me over a Pepsi,’ Crawford said, laughing. ‘And it’s funny because during Halloween a lot of women will dress up as me in that commercial. It’s like an easy Halloween costume.’

In the 2018 ad she was with her son Presley Walker Gerber who was a teen at the time.

Crawford also appeared in an an ad for Diet Pepsi in 2002, where she drove to the same gas station, this time dressed in a tight white blouse and jean shorts, driving a white Jeep.

Crawford’s modeling talents have not only extended to her son – her daughter, Kaia Jordan Gerber, is also a top model.

What are the symptoms of leukaemia in children?

Fatigue and pale skin – this is because leukaemia can cause anaemia which makes a child feel weak, tired and light-headed.

Infections and fever – children with leukaemia lack normal white blood cells which would normally help fight infection.

Rash – children may have small, dark spots that look like common rashes if the leukemia cells spread to the skin

Easy bruising or bleeding – this includes frequent nosebleeds, bleeding gums and bleeding a lot from small cuts.

Bone or joint pain – this is caused by a build up of leukaemia cells near the surface of the bone or inside the joint.

Swelling of the abdomen – leukaemia cells may collect in the liver and spleen causing them to enlarge.

Loss of appetite and weight loss – if the spleen and liver swell, they can press against the stomach causing loss of appetite.

Swollen lymph nodes – some leukaemias spread to the lymph nodes causing them to swell.

Navigating David Yarrow: On the Road Again Amidst Covid 19

For months, friends, art lovers, and fellow artists have been yearning to see art again after an immensely unprecedented year. Looking at art, immersing in it, emerging, and soaking it in — this is primary nourishment for many in the art world, personally and professionally.


What was the new art gallery world going to look like in 2020?

We had had an inkling but didn’t quite navigate that until the cancellation of Art Basel, Miami which is traditionally the first week of December. With this disappointing cancellation, David Yarrow decided to visit his favorite city in America, Chicago.

How was venturing to galleries going to be like it used to be? Like so much else now, the experience would be rudely diminished, and compromised.

The Hilton Asmus team wanted nothing but to bring the incredible beauty of this new series to light while keeping our clients, art lovers, and staff safe.

​Here’s how we did it;
ZOOM- Oh, how we’re all so incredibly past giving up our precious life moments to this platform. However, we used the tools of this platform to bring small group chats with David Yarrow to the next level. While actively logging on from as many electronics as we could we were able to walk-through the gallery just as you would any exhibition while David himself gave commentary to his work live on screen. Collectors and art lovers around the world partook in engaging one on one with the world-renowned photographer. Many, drink in hand just as they would any of our other events.

Social Media- Yes, another word we’ve all grown incredibly accustomed to over the last 10 months. Our team used all platforms to follow David Yarrow during his book signing, zoom chats, interviews, and in fact went live on many to allow for live questioning from around the world.

Book Signings- In person? Yes. With the utmost precaution, we allowed for by appointment book signings. Using social distancing, masks, capacity guidelines, and with quite a few elbow taps we were able to allow for what felt like some normalcy in the Hilton Asmus Gallery.

Virtual Gallery- Our team has developed a virtual gallery filled with prints from this extraordinary collection. Through our website, art lovers were able to walk around the gallery and take it in almost as deeply as in person.

During this time, the opportunity for David to talk to collectors one on one was an invaluable one. We were able to hear in depth about his journey with lockdowns around the world from Devon to Iceland, and Africa. And who knew? Africa was his portal into the United States.

Even more entertaining were the stories about his time with Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Josie Canseco, and of his right hand man, Rosy. A loyal friendship built merely from the first words, ‘I have a wolf with me, Do you mind if I put it on your bar and snap some photos?”.

The world may feel different right now, and it is. We, in the art world, are very used to entering a gallery and carrying our entire world in with us, and when we see good art that sparks something in us, we carry it right back out with us where it can continue on. We look forward to seeing you all soon, we miss you. Stay safe and stay healthy!

The world in focus: David Yarrow's latest photo exhibit stars in Chicago

Majestic animals, the American West and supermodels are the highlights of a recent photography show at Chicago's Hilton|Asmus Contemporary, a gallery in Chicago.


The show “On the Road Again” stars the work of fine art photographer David Yarrow, a native of Scotland.

Yarrow’s extensive portfolio of work puts the spotlight on wildlife as well as other images of nature and humanity.

During a recent visit to Hilton | Asmus Contemporary, which is owned by Schererville resident Arica Hilton, Yarrow gave a presentation about his work to a small audience of socially distant art lovers as well as a Zoom audience from other locales. The show will be displayed through June.

Yarrow said he’s always been focused on “authenticity and originality” in what he does. His photos feature strong and dynamic images of wildlife that it’s hard to find in many other photo collections.

“I want to be the best at what I do,” said Yarrow, while speaking to the group. His “On the Road Again” display features more than 35 photos that were taken this year while he traveled through Montana, Texas and Wyoming as well as Africa and Iceland.

Many of the photos star models such as Cindy Crawford and Cara Delevingne as well as a stunning wolf-like dog breed called Tamaskan dogs.

While Yarrow is a photographer by profession, he’s also a conservationist and has used his art to raise money for various charities. He said it’s important for him to “work with purpose.”

Among photos starring in the “On The Road Again” show are “Hostiles,” featuring model Crawford; “Girl on the Train,” starring model Delevingne; and “Chief,” a photo of Chief John Spotted Tail of the Lakota tribe. Yarrow said the photo of the chief is one of his personal favorites. “This is exactly how he should be photographed,” Yarrow said about the photo which features the Chief in full Native dress atop a regal horse.

About the process of photographing, Yarrow said he’s persistent.

“I’m all about patience and never quitting. You must never quit,” he said. That attitude is especially helpful in photographing his various wildlife subjects. The photographer said he prefers using wide-angle lenses in his work and also photographs in black-and-white.

The current Yarrow show features photographs that the public hasn’t been exposed to before.

“These pictures haven’t been seen anywhere in the world yet. And some were taken three or four weeks ago,” Yarrow said adding that he was happy to debut them in Chicago.

“We love Chicago. That’s why we keep coming back,” he said.
