Even our greatest and brightest sometimes fall under the spell of big cereal bucks. Ewan McGregor, George Clooney and Julia Roberts have all gone to Japan to be mesmerized – away from the western gaze (see Japander), while in the 60s they just did it in their own backyards hoping folks wouldn’t notice!

Watch the Rolling Stones’ 1963 Rice Krispies ad

According to legend, it’s the only publicly released song officially credited to Brian Jones (co-written with J.W. Thompson).

This whole excercise was to remain anonymous for the Stones but it’s so obvious that it’s Mick Jagger’s voice. Well, so obvious now, maybe not so obvious in 1963…

Check out this lyric: “Wake up in the morning, there’s a crackle in your face.” Crackle in your face? I don’t want any food crackling anywhere close to my face!

Ever hear about the kid who died mixing pop rocks candy and coke… My digestive track is anti-crackle, officially.
