Stupid TV Commercial Sunday # 21

Humans have weird dietary habits. I was watching them eat cereal the other day and thought to myself 'Why would they go and ruin a perfectly good bowl of milk by putting their kibble in it'? But then they ruin lots of perfectly good things all the time - the perfect catnapping spot (a ruffled up bed sheet becomes a flat, made bedsheet), a set of window blinds that were only recently modified for cat purposes (I knocked those plastic thingies out of place for a REASON) - and so it is no great surprise that they screw their food up too.

But this commercial is supposed to make them want to buy this particular kind of cereal (Cinnamon Toast Crunch).

So the one Cinnamon Toast guy likes to lick the other's skin... then he gets eaten whole. Then (presumably) he gets eaten by a person after he gets a milk bath. So we have this exponential cannibalism going on here. Pure marketing genius, if you happen to be an idiot human. Me, I miss the good old days where cereal was sold by singing cartoon characters.

Myself, I will stick to licking the milk out of the cereal bowls that the humans forget about, and avoid bizarre self-eating cereal.
