Watch: Adorable Ad Recreates Iconic Movie Scenes With Diverse Action Heroines

Noting early on that a vanishingly small 1% of Hollywood movies feature a female protagonist of color (among other movie-related stats), the ad boasts action heroines of various hues. 

"We need new heroes," concludes the ad, which includes references to "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Braveheart," "E.T.," "Men in Black" and others.
