    What I find the MOST interesting is the music! It's like they used the actual Genesis drums to create a new song. I think I remember seeing this commercial, but back then, didn't give a rat's ass about the music, let alone how it sounded.

    Wow, that's pretty funky. Listening to it closely reveals that it IS using the same drums Sonic 2 uses.

    Buzz got owned. What's more amusing is that he didn't actually take the cheerios with him, which implies that he doesn't care about them, and was just embarrassing Buzz for the fun of it. In fact, it looks more like a simple endorsement that an actual recommendation. They do have one thing on common though: Neither Honey nor Sonic 2 ever spoil from age. Has anyone else ever added more honey to Honey Nut Cheerios?

    And Sonic's running pose in that commercial reminds me of Knuckles's current running pose.

    Not just that, but it's using real YM2612 voices, at least on the bassline—I've heard many poor voice edits use that patch accidentally as the bass for a song. In fact, I believe that exact voice is among the voices used in Emerald Hill Zone's music! :(

    It's definitely interesting, that's for sure.

    I'm surprised I don't remember this!

    Sonic and one of my favorite voice actors, together in one commercial. <3

    I remember there was a Frosties ad in the UK around the time of Sonic 3's release too. Sonic was animated in his AoStH style, but I remember that his legs were flesh coloured! Think it may have been advertising a Sonic yoyo which you could send away for if you collected tokens from the packets.
     
  8. Well, I'd prefer Frosties ads with <game of the month> then some bloody annoying song from now on.

    I gotta get a box of that, because if it can kill an annoying 8-year old with that much awesome it really is "GRRRRRRRRRRREAT!"

    Wow that's really neat how the Bee went into the game. With all those licenced games on the Genesis such as 7up and Cheetos I'm surprised they never made a Honey Nut Cheerios Game.
