Default Cheerios' Multiracial Family Returns To Torment Racists

If you are at a Super Bowl party, someone watching the game with you might out themselves as a racist depending on how they respond to this ad

Cheerios' Multiracial Family Returns for Super Bowl Ad

Cheerios is going for the cute factor in its first-ever Super Bowl ad.

The spot, which was released Tuesday night, shows parents using pieces of the cereal to explain to their daughter that she is about to have a baby brother.

The multiracial couple and the girl, named Gracie, were featured in another recent commercial for the brand that prompted some racist comments on the internet but scored well with most consumers and was considered a big hit.




Nice touch with the little girl stating her terms for the little brother joining the family

Goddamnit, Dan. You almost made me laugh out loud in the middle of a quiet classroom.

1. I've been watching the SuperBowl commercials every night this week. Mean Joe's Coke commercial is still the best. The VW Darth Vader commercial is a close second, though.

2. We have been trying to explain to our daughter (2 1/2) that she will soon have a younger sibling. She is convinced that another mommy & daddy are living inside of her mommy's tummy, with the baby... complete with a crib, a rocking chair, and rice & beans.

I guess that we shouldn't have explained it to her at a Mexican restaurant.

Racists are gonna spit out their rice/corn/wheat Chex mix.

send the Multi-cultural families all on a slow boat to anywhere else! It's ok, I've seen pictures of anywhere else, it looks quite nice.
