August 17, 2012, 9:36 AM — Happy Friday, everyone! As you're eating your Cocoa Puffs or Lucky Charms this morning, check out this funny video from Cracked.com, in which we get an "Ocean's 11" mashup with some of your favorite cereal mascots who are always trying to nab some delicious morning flakes.
Sadly, things don't go as planned (they never do, do they?)
If Cereal Mascots Got Serious About Stealing Cereal -- powered by Cracked.com
The nerd in me wants to point out some items from the video, such as the fact that Tony the Tiger and Cap'n Crunch were never trying to steal cereal as much as the other characters (Trix rabbit, Cookie Crook and Barney Rubble certainly fit that mode). Unless they originally did when they were introduced in the '50s or '60s (anyone out there know if that was the case?). The biggest thing for me with Cap'n Crunch was trying to figure out what his first name was - luckily, the Wikipedia page for the Cap'n has the answer. Sadly, it's not Angus.
