A new commercial for Tylenol re-imagines one of Norman Rockwell’s most iconic works with a group of diverse families, including a pair of lesbian moms who are raising their children with one partner’s ex-husband and another adult.

“We’re not a broken family, or a fixed family,” the Beser Carr Schneider Musich clan explains. “We’re a super-family.”
