Outside of Ronald McDonald and the Kaboom Cereal clown, if you wanted to sell me something as a kid, a clown was not the way to do it. Which is probably why this commercial for Apple Jacks is so memorable. Featuring kids dressed as clowns and other Circus performers, I can’t say this commercial scared me, but it certainly made me uneasy.
Stay tuned to the end of the commercial which features one of the best cereal giveaways of the 1980s, the Wacky WallWalker.
