"Cracklin' Oat Flakes" is a spoof commercial
that first aired on Saturday Night Live
on November 11, 2000. You really would have to see the actual commercial for you to laugh until you cry
, but the lyrics were pretty hard to follow over all of the "freaking out
", loud music
, and strobe lights
, so, here you go.
