Celeb Video Flashback: 17-Year-Old Sofia Vergara’s Very First Pepsi Commercial
For the curious, this is what Sofia Vergara looked like at 17—in her very first Pepsi commercial!
Sure, we’re all familiar with Modern Family star Sofia Vergara’s recent Pepsi commercials—but here’s one from the vaults: A Spanish-language Pepsi commercial she shot when she was 17. Talk about a blast from the past! Check it out here:
Unfortunately I don’t speak Spanish, so I’m not entirely sure what’s being said in the ad’s voiceover; but from what I can gather, beachgoer Sofia wants to obtain a Pepsi. But there’s a problem: The sand between her and the Pepsi stand is REALLY FRIGGING HOT. What’s a girl to do? Why, strip off bits of her clothing to use as stepping stones, of course! The big question appears to be whether or not she’ll take off her bikini top… but happily, she makes the tasteful choice and leaves it on. Thank goodness. (How’d I do, Spanish-speakers?)
So, Bettys: What do you think? Since Sofia was born in 1972, this ad’s date is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 1989. It’s also notable for being Sofia’s first onscreen appearance, and it was apparently huge in Latin America. She looks a little younger here, of course—she was just a teenager, after all—but I think we can safely say that the now-40-year-old funnylady has aged quite well indeed!
Tell us: Which celeb would you most want to witness as a teenager?
