A Creepy 60s Cereal Commercial Starring Krinkles the Clown

This nightmare-inducing 60s-era television commercial for Post Sugar Rice Krinkles stars a crazy-eyed clown mascot for the cereal who was appropriately named Krinkles. Krinkles was not the only unfortunate mascot for Sugar Rice Krinkles–an earlier version of the cereal featured So-Hi, a decidedly racist Asian caricature. For another dose of Krinkles, see this 1960 commercial starring an entirely different yet still cringeworthy clown. Be sure to watch the end of the commercial for a bizarro song and dance number by a family straight out of Mad Men.
