Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You will never lose weight if you do not eat a proper breakfast. You need breakfast to build up energy to get you through the day.
We’ve all heard those platitudes. If you live with your parents, then you probably still hear them on a daily basis. If you struggle with breakfast, I am totally with you. It is difficult to get up in the morning – even more difficult to chow down breakfast when you are barely awake.
Your best bet? Some cereal. To add a little more motivation, throw in some of these cereal box designs by Ian Glaubinger. 1 This prolific artist has a lot of work in his portfolio, but it’s the cereal box art series that holds my attention right now. Take a look.
Cereal Box Art
The Ghostbusters is something else. Who wouldn’t want a view of the guys and slimer while waking up and chomping down some crunchy cereal semi-soaked in milk? The only thing missing? Ecto-1!
I can imagine many a child (or child-at-heart) staring at this cereal box design trying to get rid of the cobwebs of sleep. If 1.21 Jiggawatts can give me time travel powers, get me 10 of these Back to the Future cereal boxes!
Roald Dahl on Cereal Boxes
Let me diverge. I also read that the supermarket chain Asda will be putting some art and literature into their own cereal boxes. No Ghostbusters or Gremlins, but something that also delights me – excerpts from the works of child lit author Roald Dahl. Think The Witches and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. No designs have been released, but this is something to look out for. I wouldn’t mind seeing something along the lines of this image, together with the excerpts.
Angry Birds Augmented Reality Game – on a Cereal Box!
Since we’re on the topic of cereal boxes, here’s one more: Angry Birds, no less. The latest installation in the Angry Birds game franchise has already been made into a movie, and apparently, it also made it to cereal box history. All you need is the cereal box (with pertinent parts cut out), a web cam, a computer, and the Internet. The video below shows how the augmented reality game works.
With all this talk about cereal boxes, I can just imagine Sheldon2 having a blast arranging these boxes alphabetically. Or not.
