This Legendary Rock Band Recorded An Obscure Jingle For Kellogg’s In The 1960s
A rare clip was discovered on the internet a couple years ago with one of the most famous rock n' roll bands in history singing about Battle Creek based Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal. It has not been determined exactly when the jingle was recorded, but it wouldn't be shocking if Mick Jagger and Keith Richard's memories are a little "foggy" about it. It is believed to be from 1963 or 1964.
The Rolling Stones formed in London, England in 1962 and quickly built a large following. They became one of the bands at the forefront of the 'British Invasion' in the United States in the mid 1960s. But at some point before their popularity exploded, the band recorded a jingle for a Kellogg's television commercial that had a short run on British television. The clip shows someone pouring milk into a bowl of the cereal with the familiar words 'Snap', 'Crackle' and 'Pop' appearing on the screen.
The Rolling Stones have released dozens of albums in their world renowned 56 year career, but who knew they had a small Michigan connection before their fame?
