Cheerios released not one, but two awesome Super Bowl ads over the past two years featuring an interracial couple.

Despite the wave of backlash received by racists, yet another company has decided to model their advertising after Cheerios.

The latest Honeymaid commercial shows multiple families: gay, straight, interracial, punk rocker…and they all are enjoying the snack while doing regular activities that say a “traditional” family would.

In the brand’s first-ever Super Bowl ad, Cheerios will feature a mixed-raced family. General Mills is portraying the same mixed-race family that drew criticism on its Youtube channel last May.

The first commercial, which featured a black father, white mother and biracial daughter, sparked such horrific comments that the manufacturer had to disable the comments. The clip garnered over 5 million views.

But it hasn’t stopped the brand from featuring the family.
