When I saw this BEHR / The Home Depot paint commercial, I had to rewind it a few times on my DVR – because I wasn’t too sure what I was seeing. I saw two boys who looked fairly Asian:
and a young girl who could be possibly half-Asian or white, a white mom and possibly an Asian American man.
In reading the YouTube comments in the commercials, others had noted this normal Asian Male / White Female (AM/WF) couple. I think this is the first commercial where I’ve seen an Asian American man and a white woman with their mixed race kids (along with the family dog) – and it’s just another normal American family painting their house together.
I think I had kind of the same reaction when I wrote this blog post:
Kudos to BEHR and The Home Depot on breaking some new ground.
