There’s a commercial on TV quite a bit lately, and EVERY TIME it airs, I get tweets and texts and Facebook messages about it. Have you seen the latest Eggo Waffles commercial? Apparently lots of people think the little girl in it looks like me. Or could be my child. Either way, LOL! I see it!
I might be biased but I think the ad is super cute. And I love to see the increasing representation of diversity in advertising and media.
Back in 2006 when I started this blog, I remember lamenting the lack of people of color in ads. It felt like a big deal to see a woman with natural hair in an ad back then. And we have come a LONG way, baby.
Of course there’s always further to go, but there are times when I flip channels on TV and can’t help but appreciate the changes that I DO notice.
I’d love to meet this little girl, just so we can take a photo together!
Do you have a commercial lookalike? Tell me your thoughts in the comments!
