The Jackson 5 Cereal Conspiracy


Oh sure, you think that headline's nothing more than link bait. Fine. You believe what you want to believe. But I have proof. The Jackson 5 were totally in on the world's biggest cereal conspiracy. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Zapruder Film of advertising.

First let's start with this spot for Sugar Crisp.

It's just a bad edit trying hard to be hip and with it in these new times of jump cuts and fade outs and wipes. Sure. Subliminal message. If you say so.

But see that's only one part of the conspiracy. The Post Cereal group has Sugar Crisp in its roster of cereal-- along with Alpha Bits.

The same people who were bringing you badly edited subliminal message advertising for one Post cereal were also bringing you cool shit to pimp your bicycle in another Post cereal.

Think about that next time you sit down to breakfast.
