UNLESS you’ve been living a life of solitary (maybe in a field, feeding off the wild greenery, your clothing made of fig leafs), you’ll be familiar with Kellogg’s Corn Flakes. A bowl, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, and milk, equals satisfaction at any time of day.
When it comes to Get Stuffed, you may need a little reminder. The Get Stuffed that’s being referred to does not sit in the abrupt, telling-off category... for example: Hey, can you spare twenty quid so I can get a few drinks – get stuffed you fucking scrounger! The type of Get Stuffed I’m referring to was the popular late night/early morning cookery programme that was aired on television during the 1990s. It was fast, fun, and pretty groovy.
The flagship cereal from Kellogg’s, utilised the concept of the swift, late night cookery programme, for a television advert in 1993. Would the stable, bright, happy persona of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, and the young, fast, groovy, Wash Yer Handies (if you know, you know) of the Get Stuffed concept, pull it off? Too bloody right it did! See for yourself by watching the advert below.

Small print: Main photo is a 50-piece jigsaw puzzle that took a few minutes of head-scratching to complete. It was purchased from the middle aisle in Aldi. I was expecting a mini sachet of corn flakes to be included in the box to enhance the experience and give me something to munch-on whilst completing the jigsaw… unfortunately, this was not included. The Get Stuffed with Kellogg’s Corn Flakes advert (the one you’ve just watched) is credited to @ukads on the tweety Twitter platform. The chances are you’re now dying for a bowl of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes… go get some from the shop. If the shop is closed, use a sledgehammer to break inside and grab yourself a couple of boxes…think of it as your final treat before starting your sentence behind bars.
