stupid ads 006

special_k.jpg
in this series, we told you about some quite interesting things.
here we go with another one. those of you who like placebo will instantly understand what I think of, seeing this ad. others may be glad to be given a hint what special k means to most people.
(gravity, no escape in gravity!)

update: this same dilemma also refers to another kellogs product. thanks thomas

    If I recall right, Kellogg’s named their product first, but it’s a bit stupid that they haven’t re-branded it yet.

    i don’t think that many people understand this kind of junkies’ slang. you mustn’t always judge everything by your and your friends’ horizon! :)

    ok. I’m no experienced drug user, just chemist. secondly “special K” for ketamine is quite common, and third: thanks for support, ambre!

    nevertheless, this is my favourite breakfast. best. cereals. ever. imho.

    it seems that another kellogg’s product (coco rock) has some similar associations (as a street drug):
