And remember kids, Pop-Tarts are explosive

Jackie Renzetti

Pop-Tart ads have become known over the years for their darkly humorous scenarios in which anthropomorphic pastries unexpectedly meet their fate.  They appear in various situations, whether as a closet yodeler, monster or treasure finder. Real life Kellogg's Pop-Tarts have also inspired experiments and art projects. For your viewing pleasure, here is a highlight list of the whimsical doodles.

2) The mad scientist episode. Of course, you can’t forget the classic outtake reel.

At first glance, it almost seems as if the rainbow might continue into the Nyan Cat, which rose to fame in 2011.  Chris Torres, the creator of the flying half-kitten half-pop-tart, originally named his gif “Pop-Tart Cat,” but after it got paired with the Japanese song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya” (an onomatopoeia like “meow”) on Youtube, the rest was history.

But be warned, Pop-Tarts can burst into flames with or without the help of mythical creatures.

Patrick R. Michaud of Texas A&M Corpus Christi once conducted an experiment which found that Strawberry poptarts may give flames up to 18 inches high.

 

5) We can’t leave out perhaps the most disturbing one of all — the photo booth.
