asian supermom in nissan quest commercial

Asians! In commercials! Just saw this Nissan Quest "Errands" commercial prominently featuring one of those do-it-all supermoms balancing it all, including her taekwondo-kicking daughter, soccer-playing son... and the stinky-breath dog. Oh, and she just happens to be Asian. Check it out:

Is this a trend? It seems like we've been seeing Asian moms -- playing characters that could've been depicted by an actor of any ethnicity -- in a lot of TV commercials lately. Most notably in one of my favorites, that awesome Target commercial. If this is a trend, I kind of like it. (Thanks, Peter.)
