Ah YouTube. Sometimes you’re just wandering around looking for hilarious videos of cats riding vacuums.  But other times, you get a sense of nostalgia, and start randomly watching fast food or cereal commercials from your childhood.

Today I stumbled across a relatively new Corn Pops commercial called “Dragon Dreams.”  The title was intriguing, so I gave it a watch. I don’t know what else I should have expected from something that used both the word “Dragon” and the word “Dreams” in its title, but this entire commercial was like one giant acid trip right from the get go.

Now I know kids have this crazy active thing we like to call an “imagination”, and thus kids ads are different, but is there any type of food product with ads that are anywhere in the same ballpark as cereal ads in terms of trippiness?  Liquid Generation even put together a compilation video of what they believe are the ten trippiest cereal commercials:

If you’re in your late 20’s like I am, you must still have a whole host of memories about some crazy trippy cereal ads you saw when you were a kid.  Well then So Good readers. What do you think? Share some of your favorite trippy cereal commercials in the comment section.
