The handsome, beloved and very much deceased 'Rebel Without A Cause' star from the 50s has been given new life with a James Dean dead-ringer starring in a South African investment firm's James Dean 'Legend' commercial.

The James Dean 'Legend' commercial poses the statement "Given more time, imagine the possibilities," and shows their take on what the talented actor could have achieved had he not died in a car crash at the young age of 24.

The commercial shows James Dean as he ages, becoming both a humanitarian-like figure as well as a film director. The James Dean 'Legend' commercial is a controversial, thought-provoking ad that has breathed new life into this legendary icon.
