The Smothers Brothers argue about Shredded Wheat

The Smothers Brothers were famous for their arguing. They bring that talent to this late eighties commercial for Shredded Wheat. As usual Tom does something that infuriates Dick, in this instance he refers to spoon-sized Shredded Wheat as “space-sized”. Dick proceeds to explain how these smaller nuggets were not shrunk down for use by astronauts and therefore should not be called “space-sized”. Tom, ever the imp, changes the story by telling him he still thinks they are “space-sized”, because of how little space it takes up on the spoon.
