A casting call open to bunnies of all sizes

Trix searches for a new, real mascot.

General Mills, the company that makes Trix, has committed to removing artificial flavours and colours from its cereal. To prove that it’s opposed to anything artificial, it’s ditching the 57-year-old Trix rabbit mascot in favour of real bunny, who will be featured on a limited run of cereal boxes next year. This video for the casting call by McCann, thankfully, ditches society’s standards for bunny beauty and shows rabbits of all shapes, sizes and colours getting their shot at the big time.

At the very least, we hope General Mills finally gives the Trix rabbit a few bowls of cereal to enjoy during his forced retirement.
