Honey Nut Cheerios Commercial

A 1998 advert for Honey Nut Cheerios featuring Little Red Riding Hood.

Red Riding Hood and other fairytales appear to crop up a lot in advertising. I suppose because it's easy to hint at a narrative that people are already largely familiar with, rather than try to create an original one within 30 seconds.

Also: this is a rather strange advert really, isn't it? I mean, what's the tagline supposed to be "Cheerios: they taste marginally better than little girls"?
