A new British ad for Snickers debuted this week and features two of our favorite things: Dynasty divas and rugby players! In the new spot, Joan Collins gets to be bitchy with some hunky ruggers as well as with fellow Dynasty diva Stephanie Beacham. Back in the ’80s, they played TV rivals Alexis Carrington and Sable Colby (uh, drag name anyone?) and were the evil witches at the core of Dynasty and its spinoff, The Colbys. Collins, who is pushing 80, looks fab in a ridiculous blue gown she sports in the team’s locker room, and Beacham,who is 64, looks svelte in a sexy, silver number.
This diva-filled spot is similar to one featuring Liza Minnelli and Aretha Franklin that ran during last year’s Oscar telecast. The Collins/Beacham one was made solely for UK consumption, but we hope Snickers makes a similar play to the gays when they release their commercial for next month’s Academy Awards telecast.
