The Beautiful ‘Cheerios’ Family Returns In Superbowl Ad And It May Be The Cutest Commercial Of The Game

Screen Shot 2014-01-30 at 6.33.37 AMThe sometimes touching Superbowl ads haven’t even started airing yet and I’m already placing my vote for the cutest commercial. Some of you may remember the Cheerios ad that featured a biracial family that aired last May that featured little Gracie asking her mom about Cheerios being good for heart health and dumping a pile of Cheerios on her dad as he was napping. Some of you may also remember some not very nice things were said about the commercial that depicted parents of different races.

The new commercial features little Gracie using some of her negotiation skills as her dad tells her she will soon have a baby brother.

It’s adorable, Gracie is adorable, the mom’s expression is adorable, and this time Cheerios has disabled you tube comments so all of us who feel this is adorable don’t have to read comments by Racist McRacisty spewing nasty nonsense about a family.

To show support of families little these, the Cheerios website features the parents behind We Are The 15 Percent, which was inspired by the Cheerios ad and features portraits of interracial families and marriages. For those of you who enjoy getting all weepy and swooning over adorable images, it’s a treasure-trove of the feelings:

In real life, little Grace is the daughter of interracial parents, like hundreds of thousands of kids the world over. The new ad is entitled “Gracie” and the header is just the word “Love.”  I think that’s pretty accurate.

    Why are most biracial couples in media a black man – white woman; or white man – Asian woman?

    OMG, I love that little girl! When she says “And… a puppy”, the sassy look on her little face made me LOL for real.

    I’m glad that Cheerios didn’t cave in to the morons and bigots and dickheaded trolls who made a stink about the first commercial.
