On Tuesday afternoon, news broke that actor Abe Vigoda had passed away, leaving behind a lifetime of memorable moments for his fans to remember him by.

One of those moments occurred on the small screen during a famous commercial for Snickers that aired during Super Bowl XLIV between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts. 

The Snickers commercial showed a touch football game that at first glance appears to feature legendary actress Betty White.

After White gets taken down, someone offers her a Snickers bar which instantly transforms the aging actress into a young man ready to get back into the game.

The commercial ends with a quick appearance by Abe Vigoda, who also gets tackled to the ground in rather brutal fashion.

Super Bowl 50 will be played by the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos on February 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
