I can recite this commercial, line by line, from memory.

I watched it too much in college.

When I was stationed in the UK in the early 90s this was one of a series of ads for Weetabix cereal running on british TV at the time. The song got stuck in my head for a long time.... and now it is stuck again.



This one cracked me up too!

Yeah my frame of reference for "growing up" is mid 70-mid 80s LOL! My childhood had bellbottoms.
Sometimes it's odd to know screen names, yet know nothing about them.

Pussies. In the 70's in the UK, they advertised Death.

And with Vader in them.

Wow, it looked like it was from the 80s. I guess I didn't see it on TV because by that time, Jeff and I had ditched cable for Netflix.
