Today, the world is mourning the loss of Florence Henderson, who died last night of heart failure at the age of 82. As the Carol Brady, the mother on TV sitcom The Brady Bunch from 1969-1974, she was pretty much a second mother to many a kid of the 70s and 80s. Many might not remember, but she reprised her role as Mrs. Brady in 2000 for a commercial for Pepsi Twist, but with a different husband – Ozzy Osbourne.
The ad, which was shot in the heights of the popularity of Ozzy’s reality show The Osbournes, opens with Ozzy doing what he did best back then – being inept. While trying to change a trash bag, Kelly and Jack show him that they’re not actually the Osbournes, they’re Donny and Marie Osmond, popular ’70s family singing duo. Ozzy awakens from his nightmare yelling his familiar “Sharon!!,” only to find out that his wife is actually Mrs. Brady. While Henderson was working until just before her death, most recently on Dancing With the Stars, here’s remembering her brush with the Prince of Darkness. R.I.P., Carol Brady.
