Last June, Cheerios came under fire for airing an ad that featured a biracial family having breakfast.

YouTube was actually forced to shut down its Comment section due to online bigots dropping terms such as "Nazis," "troglodytes" and "racial genocide."

So how has the company responding? By running back the same actors in a spot that will premiere this Sunday during the Super Bowl. Good for Cheerios!

Titled "Gracie," the commercial stars a a black father, white mother, and biracial daughter and teases a new addition to the family. Actually, two new additions. Watch now:

Where will this ad rank among the most popular of The Big Game?

The American Atheists have taken some attention away from the Seattle Seahawks, the Denver Broncos and even the Puppy Bowl X roster this week.

The organization launched a billboard near Metlife Stadium in New Jersey yesterday, one that mocks the idea of prayer in sports by featuring a priest in eye black and the tagline:

A ‘Hail Mary’ only works in football. Enjoy the game!

Atheists Billboard

“Prayer is superstition, plain and simple,” said American Atheists President David Silverman. “It trivializes the dedication of the players and takes away from their achievements."

Anna Kendrick mastered "Cups" in Pitch Perfect. She very much held her own opposite George Clooney in Up in the Air.

And she looks like Anna Kendrick.

But just in case you needed extra evidence regarding the awesomeness of this actress, Newcastle has provided it via the following Super Bowl commercial.

It features Kendrick cursing and talking about how the beer company actually can't afford a Super Bowl commercial. She also talks about being hot.

It's hilarious stuff and it's guaranteed to make you want to watch Pitch Perfect online:

No offense, Carmen Electra.

Sorry, Full House guys.

But Budweiser has won the Super Bowl. It doesn't even matter if Peyton Manning throws for eight touchdowns in a Broncos victory on Sunday.

The company has given us a look at two 60-second ads that will run during the big game on February 2 and each is guaranteed to move any warm-blooded individual to tears.

There's 10-week old puppy and makes friends with a Clydesdales, set to Passenger's "Let Her Go." And there's a military member returning home to the welcome he deserves.

Are these emotionally manipulative? Of course. But are they memorable? You tell us:

Sorry, football fans:

Scarlett Johansson will not be entering your living room during Fox's Super Bowl coverage this Sunday, either literally or via your television set.

The network has banned this star's new SodaStream from the big game airwaves… not because it's too risqué (although Scarlett does she some skin!), but because she ends the spot by taunting Coke and Pepsi.

”What are they afraid of?” SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum asks USA Today. “Which advertiser in America doesn’t mention a competitor?"

Mike Ditka and... Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball?"

Two things we certainly never thought would come together, but alas, we were wrong!

A new Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime show spot aired during last night's Grammy Awards, bringing together the magic of music and the great sport of football.

The ad features pigskin greats like Terry Bradshaw (ahem, dressed like bedazzled cowboy), Deion Sanders and Shannon Sharpe.

But the real kicker (get it?) is Mike "Miley" Ditka, who appears singing his heart out on a giant wrecking ball. 

Of course, these aren't the real musical performers at next Sunday's big game. 

Billboard Artist of the Year Bruno Mars is set to take the stage during halftime. (Sorry, Ditka.) 

Watch the hilarious spot and let us know what you think!

No disrespect to Richard Sherman, but if a shirtless David Beckham modeling underwear can't get you to watch the Super Bowl next Sunday, nothing can.

Especially since H&M, which will air a Beckham-themed Super Bowl ad, promises "a high-octane ride with tantalizing views of Beckham in never-before-seen positions."

Never-before-seen positions, THGers. You may drool on cue ...

David Beckham Underwear Photograph
David Beckham is shirtless and in underwear for H&M as part of his new ad campaign. Wow.

Yes. Becks, who models shirtless for various underwear advertisements more often than Americans watch soccer in a given year, is back at it again.

That's not a knock on the beautiful game, but let's be honest:

Which would you rather stare at: David Beckham pretty much nude, or an L.A. Galaxy snooze-fest? That's right. You'd choose the chiseled abs. Own it.

As for those positions, there are actually two ads, says H&M, which is still deciding which 30-second spot the fans will see on Super Bowl Sunday.

Get your nostalgia on and check it out now:

Curvy Girl Lingerie is in the running to win a free television commercial at this year's Super Bowl as part of Intuit’s Small Business Big Game contest.

Curvz

Curvy Girl, along with thousands of other small businesses, is currently vying for online votes to make it into the top 20 and, eventually, the winning slot.

The lingerie company's main competitor at the moment is NORML, a marijuana advocacy group, according to Curvy Girls owner Chrystal Bougon.

"No matter how you feel about marijuana, there's just a higher percentage of game viewers that resonate with sexy, confident women," she said in a statement.

"We think our message will resonate with more of the Super Bowl's audience."

Bar Refaeli has had a profound impact on many young males, but none more so than Jesse Helman, who made out with her in last night's Super Bowl ad for GoDaddy.

His life has been transformed for the better, he says.

The ad, which somehow made Danica Patrick irrelevant, touted the sexy side (Bar) and smart side (Jesse) of domain registration staple GoDaddy.

"I’ve actually had guys tweet me that they wish they were me, and girls tweet me saying they wish they were Bar,” Helman says of his Super Bowl spot.
