“Monkey See, Monkey Do”

I recently posted another blog that referenced controversy in advertising (Conversation Starters). Today, I decided to check back on another recent advertisement that caused an uproar, this Cheerios commercial, which I find absolutely adorable.

However, this commercial was so controversial that Cheerios had to disable comments for the video on YouTube. In my search, I found two interesting reactionary videos. The first is a spoof off of the original with not only one, but two controversial surprises for the “haters.”

The second is an attempt to restore our hope in humanity by featuring children’s reactions to the original video.
