Those Mini Wheat's strike again

I don't know how many remember my horror with this commercial. I shared it with my work mates.

They have new commercials now and I shared once again with some of my coworkers in this email (including pics too of course):

I know we’ve had the mini wheat conversation before so I’ve tried my best to keep from beating a dead horse, but something simply must be done about these new Mini Wheat commercials that are running now. The previous ones, where the poor little things were swimming in warm milk about to be eaten were traumatic enough on their own. But now I’ve noticed these new commercials have an army of little Mini Wheat people, followed by the evil group of people that will eat our unsuspecting Minis once they stop their walking and singing. But what I find especially distracting is, while I think the plan is to sing “Mini Wheats” as they march along and the evil people behind are joining in, what it really sounds like they are singing about is ear wigs. Now I watched a particular oocky show one time where an ear wig crawled through a guy’s brain and the guy barely made it through alive. I remember that as if it were yesterday. So you can only imagine what it’s doing to my head every time I see this commercial with the happy-go-lucky unsuspecting Mini’s happy and prancing along, with the evil people who plan to eat the Mini’s and all are singing about an insect that eats brains.

I think we need to rise up and let the Kellogg’s people know that this is not a good thing! Whatever happened to those days of yore when the Mini Wheat guy was dressing for a date with a Mini Wheat gal.

So I thought I'd share it with the world too! Now it turned out that I sent this too the wrong department. I don't even know all of the people who work in the department I sent it too. So I must have looked rather odd when I found out and started laughing and laughing and laughing at the thought of people who don't know me getting this email. Although one thing happened. One of the people in the department who I do know emailed me to let me know she remembered the show. It was Night Gallery and believe it or not, it's on You Tube! So if any of you young 'uns want to get totally creeped out:

I guess no one likes your post on the Mini Wheat guys. They really aren't that annoying. Now if you talk about the STUPID CHARMINE BEARS that is a different kettle of fish. Those shitty bears suck. Same with that tissue commercial where the nose moves all around the kids face. Those suck as well. But not poor innocent mini wheats.

I actually agree with you. I find any commercial in which we are asked to like cute little humanized foods, only to cheer when they are eaten, to be very bizarre.
