It’s fun to see such a renowned group of musicians singing about cereal.
In 1962, Ian Stewart, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, and Mick Jagger would come together to form one of the most iconic bands in the history of music. Of course, we’re talking about The Rolling Stones! Did you know that in 1964, just as the group was starting to achieve mainstream success, they recorded a jingle for Rice Krispies cereal? It’s a :26 second clip that only aired in England, but it’s definitely worth watching. The lyrics, which include lines like “Wake up in the morning there’s a snap around the place,” were written by Jones. The accompanying video is supposedly a U.K. game show called “Juke Box Jury.” While the Stones aren’t the only band to provide their talents for a commercial (in fact, Rice Krispies also had commercials featuring The Monkees), it’s fun to see such a renowned group of musicians singing about cereal. See for yourself in the following clip, and if you’re hungry for more fun music tidbits, check out this amazing dance to the 1961 song “Thunderbird.”
