Campbell's Soup Features Gay Dads In Cutest "Star Wars"-Themed Ad

"I am your father." - Star Wars

Posted on

For some, the scene when Darth Vader reveals that he is Luke Skywalker's father in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is one of the GREATEST twists in cinematic history.

Yet, for Campbell's, it is the inspiration behind one of its new commercials starring a gay couple and their son...AND IT IS THE CUTEST THING EVER!

If the second dad seems familiar, he should! That's David Monohan. You know, one half of the original gay OTP from Dawson's Creek.

The commercial is part of Campbell's "Made for Real, Real Life" campaign.


"We make real food for real people," said Yin Woon Rani, vice president of marketing activation, in a press release. "This campaign shows how Campbell's products fit into people's hectic everyday lives in an authentic, humorous and relatable way."

Starting Oct. 5, the campaign will run until March 2016 and will feature the lives and stories of other ~modern~ American families.


"We wanted to show actual families, which means families of different configurations, cultures, races and life choices," Rani said. "The American family is changing faster than at any time in recent history and it is now a true mosaic of shapes and sizes, all bonded through love, and love of good food."

What a beautiful way to portray #RealRealLife. Good job @Campbells! >
