Cereal T-Shirt

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

I actually purchased this one directly from General Mills. 3 proofs of purchase and 5$ cash!


It’s way too small, and printed on a not-so-soft Gildan shirt, so it’s not comfortable enough to wear regularly. The low-end production quality ads to it’s charm, though. It’s an old-school transfer on a crappy blank, so it looks and feels home-made. It doesn’t even have the General Mills logo or any trademark notice anywhere on the shirt. I’ll bet they printed less than 500 of these, and I certainly have never seen another one in person. However if you are nerdy enough to have seen “Comic Book: The Movie”, you can see one of the actors wearing this shirt during one of the interviews in the DVD special features. This gem of a movie was written and directed by Mark Hamill, and primarily shot at the 2003 San Diego Comicon, so I highly recommend it to all nerds. Not that seeing the Cereal Monsters t-shirt isn’t enough of a reason to check out the flick. After all, who doesn’t love Frankenberry, Count Chocula, and Booberry? Fruity Yummy Mummy, on the other hand, can go fuck himself, for all I care. Na, I’m kiddin’. FYM isn’t such a bad guy. I feel bad for him, cuz his cereal was “discontinued” on account of it being so terrible.
