Sugar Huff Puffs

Televisual selling with a comedy twist
Unusual ideas or a copywriter pissed
Yet another rip off from our mad ad land
Another's idea gives a client helping hand
The bellowing yellow fellow in a tedious caper
Influence more obvious than xeroxed paper

D'oh - just read your tags...

I can imagine kids will like it, but I hate it and does more to make me loathe Sugar Puffs than if they laced the whole product in cancer producing sugar.

Funny how when all the other cereals seem to be hiding their child fatteningly friendly characters, ol' Honey M appears to have been shoved right to the front of those boxes.

Nick - Yes I am!

Rob C - See next post...

David - Well, Tony the Tiger is still about. Nothing wrong with Honey M, just the way he has been used since John Webster stopped being involved in the ads.
