Kellogg’s Coco Pops: the lyrical freestyle

KELLOGG’S are the masters of the musical freestyle in television adverts: think back the catchy very very tasty song for the Bran Flakes series. With the Bran Flakes ads, Kellogg’s proved that when it comes to lyrics, rhyming and logic are not required; in fact the lack of rhyming and logic added weight to the adverts and the outcome was pure genius. When it came to Coco Pops, Kellogg’s showed their rhyming skills starting with the word pops.

Un-naked attraction

When we strip Coco Pops down to its birthday-suit, we essentially have rice krispies: the chocolate flavoured coating covering its naked slightly-rounded body. Simple but effective transformation of the popular existing product. The advert displayed rhyming skills unrivalled by any other cereal company. There’s no doubt that their rhyming skills plays a huge part in making rice krispies covered with chocolate coating extremely attractive (see video at the end).

2019 Coco Pops lyrics?

And it goes a little something like this:

Coco Pops, chocolate flavour

Coco Pops

Pound coin drops

Tank-tops

Sink-tops

Desktops

Milk drops, on Coco Pops

iPhone drops

Photo crops

Call the cops

Mr Mops

but nothing tops

Kellogg’s Coco Pops 

 

We’ll have Big Narstie delivering the lyrical flow. The song will also include a fat, dirty beatbox in the background. The result will be a tight, unforgettable lyrical flow that will have the nation bobbing their heads.
