Alien Vs. Cereal: a rather loquacious alien expounds upon the wonders of Raisin Bran Crunch.

Via Adfreak: "A chatty British alien explains how his life is so much better now that he's eating right—more Raisin Bran Crunch, less human meat and cerebral fluid—in this amusing three-minute video from Leo Burnett in Chicago. The creature looks a lot like one of the H.R. Giger creations from the Alien movie series. He even has the smaller inner set of jaws, which turn out to be perfect for eating spoonfuls of the cereal."

Is this a US or UK ad? I'd love me some Raisin Bran Crunch here in London.

Even the alien brainsuckers in Britain are boring.

He says "garbage". So it's US.

Also he has that fake "Spinal Tap" accent Americans do when they mimic Brits.

Pumpkinhead with a crappy coat of paint and a random Aliens-esque mouth-tongue. Bah. You can have the sequels, but leave the original alone. That movie rocked.

I thought it would be... well, funnier. They didn't milk the material at all. Like, what, just a monster with a goofy accent in an out-of-place setting is enough to run with? Not hardly, my friends, not in these latter days of hi-LAR-i-ous Internet videos.

Well, then, the commercial is rubbish.
