Johannes Brahms v. Tony the Tiger

Studio 360

I know I'm well past the age of someone who should be doing this, but every once in a while I like to watch Saturday morning cartoons. Last weekend while watching "Jane and the Dragon" (great show, by the way), I saw a commercial for a new cereal called Raisin Brahms.

As in the 19th century German composer Johannes Brahms.

Ok, so it's not a real cereal. It's actually a public service announcement created by an organization called Americans for the Arts. As part of their "The Arts. Ask for More." campaign, they partnered up with the NAMM Foundation and the Ad Council to produce commercials that encourage parents to get their kids interested in the arts. Because Brahms really is part of a complete breakfast. Take that Frosted Flakes.
