Here's a 28 minute compilation of Monster Cereal Commercials. This season kicks off the season of the monster cereals! I remember having Count Chocula cereal, although I don't remember what it tasted like.

:D It's interesting how they imitate the voices of Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff.

I am not sure if I've ever seen any two more bizarre commercials. This one's for Chiclets.

Did you know why they are called Chiclets? They were originally called Adams Chiclets, and were made by American Chicle Co. According to the dictionary, a chicle is...

noun
the milky latex of the sapodilla tree, used to make chewing gum.

This blew my mind at this early hour.

:D Those commercials are weeeeeeird. :shock: I recognize Reagan and Gorbachev from the first one, don't recognize the ones in the second (the woman is a lit-tle scary :( ).

That's interesting about Chiclets. I'd never thought about it.

It's Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Very strange commercials. :?
