C3P0s Cereal – The Prissiest Cereal in the Galaxy!

Partake of the prissiest cereal in the galaxy! This commercial captures everything that was great and horrible about the original Star Wars Trilogy merchandising blitz. If you were a fan of Star Wars – it was everywhere, but it was often on sub par products – like this unimaginative breakfast cereal. I ate this like a madman because I was a committed fan of the golden one and I can tell you. It tasted like a less flavorful Captain Crunch with the texture of dense cheerios. I know that does not sound like a glowing recommendation, but I assure you it was awesome.

Oh and it is cool that they got Anthony Daniels to do original VO work for the commercial.

    I would’ve ate any food with Star Wars on it or in it, in that crazyfun childhood Lucas-worshipping period.

    Probably just as well lots of it didn’t make it past the trial periods before getting to Canadian soil.
    Would’ve needed to put a restraining bolt on me to not feed exclusively on these.

    Great blog, Plaidman!

    I never ate this cereal. I’m surprised it takes like Captain Crunch. It looks like it would taste like Alpha-Bits.
