Cheerios - Adoption
Summary: A couple adopts two children, and Cheerios provides an early bond for the new family.
Filmed in Russia, the surrounding architecture includes onion-domed churches, typical of Eastern Europe. Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow is pictured in the background early in the commercial.
The ad starts with a woman and man riding in a van, and the woman saying "We waited so long for this. I can't believe it's finally happening. Are you as nervous as I am?" The husband then holds his wife's hand.
When they arrive at the orphanage, the children are a little shy. But beyond the uncertainty, the scenes portrays a great deal of hope for the new family.
On the plane ride home to the United States, the woman gives Cheerios to the two children, making a little smiley face out of the O's. The boy and girl smile. When they arrive at the home airport, there is a slow-motion moment of the little girl staring up endearingly at her new parents.
