Cereal gangsters, yo.

Posted by: Dave In: Business |Design |Humor

Are you an original gangster livin’ in the ‘hood? Show all your dope homies that you know what style is, yo. Show them your Kellogg Brand Under the Hood threads*.

It may be possible to come up with a worse idea for a clothing line, but it’d require some serious thought. “Hello Kitty in the ‘Hood”, maybe? “My Little Pony”? All I can think of is that some marketing guy was told to come up with x number of new ways to use their brand logos, and this was at the bottom of his barrel. Can’t see why the apparel company would go for it, but maybe there was a contractual obligation involved…

This is a perfect example of corporate decision-making gone awry.

I bet several executives thought this line of clothing would help bring today’s youth in touch with the Kellogg brand.

They may have even paid a design firm some money to come up with this.

Makes me laugh.

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
