    ...actually, my roommate was watching it.

    Regardless, there was a Life cereal commercial/ad right before the movie. :huh: How strange...

    Anyways, so it went on, talking about Life cereal (cinnamon, it's good for you, blah blah blah), when suddenly, the narrating voice said, "Unless they're weird, your kids will eat it!"

    WTF? What a terrible way to encourage impressionable kids and mentally handicapped adults to eat or buy cereal! :cmad: It puts all sorts of pressure on those impressionable young children, not to mention the parents! Who wants to have a weird kid?

    :down to Life cereal.

    I never used to notice blatant film advertisement until Spider-Man where Spidey lands on that a truck advertising a beer brand.

    This is another good point. I think lucky charms old slogan was "your kid is a ****** if he doen't like marshmellows ... enjoy"

    Well, is the commercial wrong? You are weird if you don't eat Life. Come on now.

    We all have our nuances that makes us wierd to others.

    Wierd people don't eat Life cereal.

    Therefore, no one eats Life cereal.

    The only reason people think kids like Life Cereal is because of those stupid commercials "he likes it! hey mikey!". Plus they put a damn kid on the front of the box. I work in a store and I don't see many kids asking or gettng life cereal.

    I am not kidding...I heard these loud sounds coming from my roommate's room, and I came in and said, "WTF are you WATCHING?!? :cmad:", and I looked, and it was HOME ALONE 3.......the one that answers the question, "Could there be a child actor MORE obnoxious than Macaulay Culkin?"

    There appears to be some "Home Alone" / "Roommate" connection. :(

    I liked Home Alone 3 when it first came out. (I was 7) Though I didn't bother with the surely crappiness of Home Alone: Taking Back The House.
