An M&Ms advertisement that flew under the radar somewhat when it was released in 2015 has gone viral on Twitter.

The image shows two female M&Ms—Ms Green and Ms Brown—sitting on a bench by the ocean holding hands.

The caption reads: “It’s rare Ms. Brown and I get to spend time together without some colourful characters barging in. – Ms. Green”.

For whatever reason, the image went largely unnoticed two years ago but has blown up this week with Twitter users rejoicing in the queer chocolate representation. 

This fish is not gay, says Sultana Bran and the Advertising Standards Board
Viewers complained that a cartoon goldfish perpetuated the stereotypical characteristics of gay males.

There’s even been fan art created for the chocolate romance between Ms Brown and Ms Green. 

Although some people were more concerned by the footwear the M&Ms had worn to the beach. 

But mostly, people are just overjoyed.
