Kellogg’s mascots pledged purple for GLAAD’s seventh annual Spirit Day. 

Tony the Tiger, Toucan Sam, Ernie Keebler, Julius Pringles, Corny the Corn Flakes Mascot, and Snap, Crackle and Pop appear in the video to share their experiences with bullying by holding up signs.

To watch the video:

“We’re here to raise awareness around an important issue. It’s not something we can easily talk about. Because we can’t talk. We’re mascots.”

“So whether it’s someone calling you a chicken, or saying you aren’t that gr-r-reat… If someone says your nose is too big, or that you look like the Monopoly guy… if someone makes fun of you for being an elf… or they aren’t really sure what you are… it’s up to all of us to speak out,” the mascots continue. “Even if you can’t do it literally. Because bullying is no laughing matter.”

“And no matter how you look… where you’re from… or who you love…. we must all stand together. Join us in speaking out against bullying,” the message concludes.
