UPDATE: CRUNCHY NUT’S CINCO DE MAYO PROMOTION HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN FROM NUT CRUNCH’S FACEBOOK PAGE, APPARENTLY BECAUSE IT WAS NOT REALLY FUNNY, NOR RELEVANT. HOWEVER I MADE SURE TO SAVE THE COPY -AND GRAPHICS- FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT…
Oh no, they didn’t!
I swear it took me a while of digging before realizing this page is legit.
Well, damn it, it IS legit!
Kelloggs, which for some reason says its Crunchy Nut Cereal is the cereal of [un] official celebrations, has launched a celebration of –yes, you guessed it!— Cinco de Mayo. A Facebook campaign exposes visitors to some supposedly funny
not funny “informational” copy, where we learn among other things that:
The fifth of May holds special significance that dates back to the rule of the ancient Mayans. They believed the number five was extremely lucky, and took great care to integrate it into their lives. Calisthenics five times a week. The five-day workweek. And so on. But the number five had special meaning when it appeared more than once – five-five or May 5 was worthy of only one thing: celebration. So, the Mayans would get their groove on withKellogg’s® Crunchy Nut® cereal on May 5 in honor of their favorite number.
Yadda, yadda, yadda. Yeah, yeah, it’s supposed to be funny, but you know what? It is not, really.
There’s just one thing this blogger would like to add: These guys are positively NUTS!
