I think this shit is hilarious:

I mean, there’s pandering to a demographic, and then there’s pandering to a demographic. And this is the latter, don’t you think?

I mean, fucking Fiesta Fruity Pebbles?

What makes them “Fiesta”? Aside from them being “¡Nuevo!” and all? Well, you see, they have confetti sprinkles on them. And that makes all the sense in the world, because when you think of Mexicans, you naturally also think of confetti.

The real humor is on the back of the box. Dig it:

This cereal is ¡de fiesta con su familia! Because when you’re Mexican, every breakfast is a party with your family! Mom plays a little one-handed flamenco guitar while shaking a maraca, the lady from next door bangs on some bongo drums, and everyone else takes turns whacking at the elephant-shaped piñata you have hanging in the breakfast nook!

And don’t forget to catch the confetti in your cereal bowl as it falls out of the piñata. Confetti es ¡muy delicioso!

¡Arriba! Or, rather, as the box says: Awesome ¡Fantastico!
