    OK, I've been out for a few beers. Thought I'd check youtube for something interesting... and this??? WTF has happened to John Oliver? Surely someone must have put a gun to his head to do this! I don't understand! Is this real?

    I may regret asking this, but why did the Vax cicada look a little like he was bounded to his seat? Was that just my imagination?

    Grape Nuts is an emo cereal. You eat it because you hate it.

    Who wants cereal these days 🤷🏻‍♂️ high in calories low in protein, worst possible breakfast you can have, eggs, pancakes or Skyr yogurt are the way forward.

    I am offended by the baseless claim that goth kids don't like chocolate. There's nothing more goth than dark, bitter chocolate.

    NO! I haven't watched it yet, but NO! Come on John, don't ruin cereal as well! It's one of the last few happy harbours. EDIT: Phew. Crisis avoided.

    I did actually see a Sour Patch Kids cereal at my local grocery recently. Slightly horrifying but it does appear to be new. (And not far from gushers.)

    The capable cake bilaterally steer because example transmurally fence regarding a cuddly singer. elderly, abiding trade

  • TheoTheGreek1821

    I feel like JB Smoove wrote this whole premise

  • redmanticore

    5:46 they could make salty liquorice black candy cereal, which is called "salmiakki" in Finland, for the goth kids. it would even turn the milk black. would anyone in America buy it? no. but they could make it, just to have it. the taste and look would be so weird, it would be a real "what the heck".

    Since Honey Nut Shredded Wheat became a thing all other cereals are pretty much redundant anyway so I don't really care about cereal news.

    How much money does HBO give him each season to donate to charity through random challenges or on other stunts. I’m not complaining, it’s awesome. I’d just love to know, is it a separate fund? Or does Oliver just need to spend all the show’s budget by the end of the season in whatever way possible. I’m pretty sure LWT is just a tax write off for HBO at this point.

    "There should be a cereal for kids who won't really have friends until college, and someone should make it for them!" You get me, John. You really get me.

    Wow, John just ruined Frosted Flakes for me. I will never again be able to pour a bowl of it without thinking about "Human scabs that have been non-consentually drenched in powdered sugar"" softened in milk with every bite..... Food ruined for life. 😒

    This man has not been in a cereal aisle. The number of new, and stupid, cereals is staggering. They're to the point of just combining 2 cereals to make a new cereal. Like people can't do that themselves.

    4:55 The purposely training children to think choking hazards are delicious and just moving on because you trust the audience to get that it is a joke and why it is a joke might be the best part.

    Definitely need a "EAT S#$T BOB" Cereal with Nutter.(I'm not referring to the squirrel.) Lol. Maybe in the nutrition section, they could add the calorie content of hoot dog water

    It's not exactly new, but as a special tie-in to the Disney+ series Loki, Lucky Charms has temporarily become Loki Charms.

    how about some rat porn cereal?

  • Bahfelix

    I don't see the Chi John mascot up there. Maybe he could convince us of the deliciousness of a slightly dissatisfying cereal that starts off syrupy and sweet, but leaves you with a sore mouth and an mildly bitter aftertaste.
