I'm in love with this Kellogg's commercial featuring 'Mark & Chris'

This Kellogg's commercial from the United Kingdom featuring gay couple Mark and Chris is so simple, yet says so much. This is partly what it's all about. Having a normal life with someone you love.

From The Huffington Post:
Chris Hall and Mark Hearfield, who hail from Bury, England, are among the eight families featured in Kellogg’s “My Perfect Bowl” effort, which highlights the “weird ways” that people eat the signature cereal. In the clip above, Hall, 42, says he likes his cereal with “piping hot” milk and honey. Hearfield, 59, prefers a more straightforward, “room temperature” preparation. The men, who have been together for 22 years, told The Bury Times that they were thrilled to take part in the commercial, which debuted on YouTube and British network television on Jan. 6.
