Mine must be defective cause I suck at sports
They also look like giant fish food.
This works well for me because I am actually a giant fish
Just because you occasionally see sports in the commercial does not mean there is any implication the product will make you better at sports. I can't help but wonder what crazy things you think other products do.
The commercials clearly had kids playing sports, losing, eating Frosted Flakes, than winning
I don't know how else to interpret that
That's what they want you to see.
That is not a direct claim that it will make you better at sports. The kids are also followed around by a cartoon tiger. Do you expect that to happen too? Cause you're gonna need something stronger than frosted flakes.
Just because it is not stated does not mean it's not implied. What's the point of having the kids get better at sports after eating Frosted Flakes if that was not what was being advertised?
Also, they aren't being followed by Tony after eating the flakes, Tony gives it to them, so it isn't implied to cause it.
One slogan of Frosted Flakes that is used a lot is "Frosted Flakes brings out the tiger in you!" This slogan is often sang after or while showing showing kids or Tony himself play well at sports. More often than not, prior to eating the cereal, the main character is losing or being made fun of. What else could that possibly mean
And crash afterwards... Sometimes
If you look at the nutrition labels, almost all cereals have too much sugar - even the "healthy" ones.
Advertising and marketing are very much about implying, but not actually claiming that something is true.
