Death Threats, Result of Cereal Jingle.

A 15 year old boy named Sven who’s been appearing in television spots in the UK for Frosted Flakes (or Frosties as they’re known across the pond), has been receiving death threats because of the advertising.  The jingle, which is a bit repetitive, seems to have rubbed a few viewers the wrong way.  After the commercial began airing, messages like these started populating the internet:

‘He’s a revolting despicable child – he deserves to die.’

To top it all off, rumors also began to circulate in which it was said that Sven had committed suicide.  Sven debunks this rumors by stating, “I’m not going to go out and commit suicide because of things people are saying.”

A Bowl of Flakes for Me!

Flakes or Puffs?  Chances are, you’ve never really thought about it.  Sure, you prefer some cereals over others, but I doubt it was the cereal’s shape that was influencing your decision.  Or perhaps it was – what do I know?

But according to a recent study, flakes could actually be healthier than puffs.  The study suggests that, due to the differences in cooking techniques, less of the chemical furosine is produced in flakes than in puffs.  And that’s a good thing, because less Furosine means more available protein.

So I guess that Tony should change his catchphrase to reflect the new selling point.  Frosted Flakes: They’re Grrrreat…and Healthierrrr than Puffs!  I’m terrible with humor.
