Gone is the little girl that graced our screens, replaced by a tattooed, stylish, and grown-up Mia. Her recent appearance in the Instagram ad has reignited nostalgia among social media users who can’t help but quote the famous catchphrase once again.

It’s a cracker of an ad and worth a watch. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and revisit the original ad that graced our screens always around dinner time 17 years ago.

This isn’t Mia’s first foray into the world of ads since her childhood fame. The Sydneysider also featured in a 2020 commercial for furniture company Koala. Beyond her ad appearances, Mia, who works at JD Sports, shares her passion for dancing, art, and fashion on her social media.

Social media reactions to her grown-up appearance have been nothing short of enthusiastic, with many praising the clever marketing move and expressing their adoration for the blast from the past. One user wrote “Fiesta de Taco con Mingle 🎉” which translates to “Taco Party with Mingle 🎉.”
