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.”
