Yes, Seriously. It clearly makes out that each shreddie is made by hand...

If you asked most children under the age of say 7 how they are made, after watching the advert, they will say they are knitted..

Then in the supermarket they may put pressure on parents to buy the hand knitted breakfast...

I am being serious, the advert should have a warning, or banned.

We save money as I get my wife to knit mine.

It's called satire, and adverts would be really boring without it.

[COLOR="Red"]Good advertising IMO.

People are now talking about the advert and the product.

satire??

I dunno

False advertising.. Yes..

yeah, maybe they should ban those Kwik-Fit ones aswell, cos I bet the guys who work there don't really play pianos disguised as tool racks, and I bet they can't really hypnotise people like they show in the ad.
and the 118-118 ads, cos people might think they're calling two guys who live in a really bad parody of the 1980's on their phones, and therefore might think they'll incur an extra 'time travel' charge or something equally as stupid.
They should also ban kids cartoons and stuff,incase they think it's real. In fact ban all signs of creativity and imagination from the kids.

lolz i thought this...plus its false when they fill the box to the top!!

anarchy!

i neither love nor hate marmite, I can eat it, but wouldnt go out of my way to buy it.

We were in Asda the other day and a mother said to her son, who must have been about 5 or 6 if he wanted shreddies, and he said no because they were made by grannies who looked dirty... how I loled :):roll:

My kids say pretty much the same, its cereal made by grannies for grannies and they won't touch it - so the advertising does not always work
