Frosted Flakes commercial (1974)









This is the year of the tiger


So have breakfast with the tiger of the year




That's an image emblazoned on my brain from many Saturday morning cartoons.


"Cool it, cousin, I'll let you know when it's the year of the elephant."

That's mighty persuasive. How can you resist the strength of the argument? It's the year of the tiger. You're hungry for a hearty breakfast. A tiger, who just so happens to be the tiger of the year, offers you a breakfast with 8 essential vitamins and iron. Why not have breakfast with the tiger of the year?

There's a fine line between wasting people's time and tickling them. I'm very glad you fall into the latter!
