  1. it’s obvious, man – makes us think of simpler times. buy our cereal! pretend you’re not in a recession!

    it’s not laziness, it’s savvy.

  2. I’m not really indicting general mills or whoever specifically, but it is symptomatic of a greater trend.

    economically clever

    stylistically exhausted

  3. OMG that box is so totally retro and awesome! Ooh, I think I’m hungry for Kix.
