This Ad From The 1960s Is Selling Cereal, But Instead, You Just Get Nightmares
April 10th, 2015
As silly as modern children’s cereal commercials are, at least their advertisements are positive. The cereal itself may be overpriced and filled with sugar, but the ads aren’t shocking.
But that’s not how it used to be. In the 1960s, innocent children were introduced to Krinkles. Krinkles was supposed to be a clown. Instead, he was some kind of hell demon that was hocking Sugar Rice Krinkles.
Aw! Cock-a-doodle doooo!
What..what monster have we awaken from the subterranean earth?
Oh, it’s a clown.
A really creepy clown who IS NOW RUNNING TOWARDS YOU!!
He has been alerted to our presence.
This is where he blinks “murder” in Morse code.
The clown has a heavy addiction to this cereal.
He would like you to try some!
Definitely do not, DO NOT try this cereal!
Needless to say, I’m super glad Sugar Rice Krinkles never took off. This only makes me love Snap, Crackle and Pop even more. They don’t haunt my dreams.
