I know that this ad was basically tailor-made for the Internet and I am blatantly falling for its crass manipulations of the nerdiest pleasure centers, but what can I say? My nerdy pleasure centers are lighting up! (That is what she said.) I’m sure the accent DOESN’T HURT. (Did you know that in England they call Raisin Bran “lorries”?) That being said, I’m still not becoming this dude’s Facebook friend. (Via BoingBoing.)

  1. John Cleese looks really good!

  2. This speaks to me. He looks like how I feel in the morning.

  3. Looks like your run-of-the-mill Essex girl

  4. Interestingly, the extended video of this carries the subtitle “If Distrcit 9 were set in London”…

  5. The real question is can Raisin Bran Crunch power Reggie Watts?

  6. So good! Did you know in Australia they call it Sultana Bran?
    ‘Who can argue with the fiber?’ is my favorite part.

  7. From car insurance to cereal, is there nothing a British accent won’t compel me to purchase?

  8. Good video and all that, y’know, but, y’know, it’s like one of those things that, y’know, when you think about it, it’s pretty manipulative. Ya Know.

  9. Probably my favorite ads are the ones that barely talk about the product at all. Funny how that works.

  10. Giger Bran Crunch over here.
    I’m surprised there were no Species Crispies or the Xenomorphios advertised.

  11. There are a lot of undersirables on line. You know.

  12. All those red meats and cerebral fluids really sta’ting to pack it on down here ’round this area… Thank heavens for those pi-lates.

  13. Before i clicked on the video, i was highly amused/sickened because i thought Gabe was likening the texture of that creature’s skin to the raisins…in raisin bran. Was that not an intentional part of this advertisement?
