Okay, so this is the offensive Kellogg’s “Special K Santa” commercial. See? Because if you don’t look like Popeye’s paramour at all times, you are at constant risk of being followed by surprisingly easily-confused magical reindeer.
And THIS is the Kellogg’s cereal I saw (and admittedly bought) at the grocery store closest to Villa Plumcake:
First of all, I have no idea if it’s disgusting or not. I had the remains of last night’s street vendor mulita for breakfast and lunch is going to be some pineapple yogurt and last night’s glass of chenin blanc, but I love the idea that in Latin America, instead of punitive flakes of disapproval, you get extra passion first thing in the morning…and then you can have cereal (HIYO!)
What’s most interesting is the commercial:
In the States, a chubby neighbor vamping and flirting would’ve been given the clown treatment, she would obviously be the object of ridicule, but in this spot, although it’s funny, it’s more of a cute funny than a cruel one. It’s cute, SHE’S cute. Sure she’s in a bathrobe and her hair is wrecked, but she’s treated as an ordinary woman, not a fat joke punchline and that’s refreshing. Besides, it’s way too hot to have reindeer down here. No matter HOW easily-confused.
