It smiles at you and makes you eat it and then turns into the monster when your pants don’t fit anymore :D
A little rhetorical analysis on the images. All of the users are white, except Sponge Bob and he’s, well, you know, a sponge. AfAm kids don’t eat sugar cereal? Weird marketing glitch. All users have tongue and/or teeth (Eat, skeleton!) and all the figures are AMPED. Sorry, !. Notice some of the other thematic designs within the art: Snap’s hair is a * shaped explosion, the Greek Olympiad people have sweat-like drops of milk jumping out of the bowl as well as vibration squiggles, all the eye catchlights come from above (SpongeBob has a “two light”) and WHAT are the sad-faced cheeks at the end of Bob’s smile? Sugar blues? Almost everybody has detached, jumping eyebrows. Thematically we have: elves, athletes, a sponge, a rabbit and a captain. SpongeBob is the outlier: he has a former career, the others have always been spokesymbols.
Worthy of further study. Honest.
I think I attended a 12-step program with these people.
I love Rice Crispies. Snap. Crackle. Pop.
We’re just a bunch of happy and lovable mascots for a chronic dose-dependent hepatotoxin! Wheee!
Now this is exactly the kind of stuff I stopped eating when I rediscovered that even a healthy food alternatives can be tasty. Now these images scary me more than tempt me to eat the sugary stuff they advertise.
