  • I saw cosmic brownie cereal and felt my heart hurt

  • watching this and eating cereal ;-)

  • Nighttime cereal, the cereal you eat, vomit into the bowl, continue to eat, vomit again, and repeat until it’s all just puke or you pass out from all the alcohol you’ve consumed that night. Yes I’m referencing the video of the guy drinking his own vomit repeatedly until his whole beer glass was just full of vomit.

  • 1:08 That blue and red piece of Trix looks like a shitty representation of the rona virus.

  • You obviously didn't hear about the new "Glyphosate Granola" and "Weedkiller Weeties"

  • How did he not talk about the iconic Reese’s Puff rap commercials???

  • ''PLUS ULTRA CEREAL''

  • Ok. I need that cereal where your a giant monster eating everyone like godzila. Someone no joke, FOR REAL actually make that. I am dead serious. I would 100% invest in that

  • lol

  • I would like legitimately plaid Chex mix please. Or argyle. Or a mix of both if somebody is just feeling totally fucking crazy. It basically would be eaten by children that wear bow ties and then adults that wear bow ties and women that date men that wear bow ties. The mascot will of course have to be a bird in a Tweed coat and its name will be Tweedy Bird.

  • Do an episode, on the stupid stuff the PPC Party of canada are saying

  • Literally went to my local store found “dunkaroos ceral”, “churros cereal”, “twinkies cereal”, oatmeal pies cereal…sugar industry booming

  • Come on funny man. What u got? 👾

  • DildO’s!

  • "My picture's on the box" Not in Mexico.

  • There's peeps cereal. Doughnut cereal

  • John forgot the Sour Patch kids cereal

  • John, can I interest you in a podcast called The Empty Bowl which is soft spoken ASMR where 2 dudes talk about new cereals? It's good shit.

  • LOL love how he ripped one on Marvel.

  • This guy is a legend

  • Pepperidge Farm Gold Fish Cereal......

  • This show is the perfect blend of 1st world and 3rd world issues.

  • Great language, a real pleasure listening to you!

  • One of his best segment. I got so hyped I started to be angry like him

  • Yeah, that's what Oliver should do. He should do a show on the positive things that have come out of the pandemic. He should call me. We can discuss it over lunch.

  • Can't follow Oliver on this one. All these cereals are so highly processed that all nutritional value has been stripped from the grains that make them up during the manufacturing process. Then various vitamins are added back in--along with a heavy dose of sugar and marketing--as if you could recombine the components to make a healthful food item. Better to eat an entire piece of fruit, pulp and all, than the deconstructed crap on the market. If Oliver wants to push for better marketing start with a better product. Anyway, I make my own granola, yoghurt, and all kinds of bread. That's one good thing that came out of the pandemic. Oliver should do a show on that.

  • The Cheerios charity of choice would be the CEO himself. How easy would that be? Just create a tax-exempt phony charity or church (you've all seen that episode, right?) and launder the money through it. Yep, charity begins at home.

  • #lmfao. "This has been SLflow." #rofl

  • Oooh marvel burn🤣

  • The truth is far worse: not only is there nothing new, but I haven't been able to find Just Right on the shelves for a couple of months now.

  • Cereal was originally a health food. Now it's mostly desert for breakfast, unfortunately.

    • It was a "health food" created from a mistake by the brother of a cheapskate crazy man attempting to run a spa of sorts. You can thank Post for making it a DESSERT for breakfast.

  • Cereal for Stoners. You missed a Huge market. "Stoner-o Cereal - Munch the Whole Box Without a Bellyache"

  • i was drinking water during this video and spat it out when he said what he wanted the cheerios twitter account to do

  • That was awesome. Cereal is my go to comfort food.

  • Man with 8m subscribers goes lockdown crazy on week off.

  • Update: cheerios donated $100000 to Children charity

  • Someone needs to tell this wonderful man about Magic Spoon.

  • Useless

  • This show is owned by HBO/Time Warner who also owns DC. That is why they took a shot at Marvel, whereas the joke would have actually landed if they had made fun of the DCEU.

  • Frigging love Cheerios!

  • John go try Milk and Cream Cereal Bar in NYC!

  • First World problems...

  • Shaq'a'dactyls, Man Flakes (for cucks, by cucks), and Good with Whatever - listen to Plumbing the Death Star for literally any context.

  • Oatmeal Creme Pie cereal is a thing and it’s incredible. I’ll let that sit with y’all.

  • I got a glow in the dark straw/spoon in my trix box like 30 years ago!! It was awesome

  • I'm genuinely wanting for there to be a cereal based around that squirrel so it can be on the box with a text bubble telling shoppers (or still that particular Bob) to eat shit. 😂 Also: I came up with an idea. The fact that we derive "cereal" from "Ceres", and that Ceres is a dwarf planet, makes me think of a cereal that would be themed around dwarf planets. Only I would leave out Pluto just for spite of the fools who still want it to be a "real" planet while ignoring the other dwarf planets. (Such as Ceres.) 😆

  • Trix needs to return to the little balls. The classic was so much better than the reboot.

  • I have a truly innovative provocative and daring cereal idea but I’ll only do it if I can get Chi John as the new mascot. I noticed he didn’t seem to be an option. Your move John Oliver is A bright new Shiny cereal worth taking away Shinjo Kuns new best friend, balls in your court

  • 💡

  • PLEASE!!!!!!! Do a segment on the current Australian Governments appalling vaccine rollout blunder and their absolute incapability to govern our nation. We are currently LAST in the OECD and LAST in all developed countries when it comes to the % of population vaccinated, over 65% of our population is currently in strict lockdowns and this is 100% because our Prime Minister (Scotty from marketing) failed to obtain the necessary vaccines. His government was offered 40 million doses of Pfizer in February and they said "Nah she'll be right mate"... Leaving us with AstraZeneca as the only vaccine available, then when news and reports started coming in about the rare, but serious, TTS Blood Clotting Syndrome, they ran a scare advertising campaign to advise Australians (of all ages) to get vaccinated (with AZ) even though the ATAGI and TGA advice was strongly opposed to anyone under the age of 60 receiving AZ... You ran a segment a few years ago "Other Countries Presidents of the United States" where you featured previous Prime Minister and Scroot Morrisons predecessor, Tony Abbot. You actually featured my song "F*ck You Abbott" in that segment (highlight of my life)... Please once again, shed some light on the ridiculous absurdity of the current Australian Government. Your faithful follower Ryan James

  • That wildberry is definitely green, not blue. I wouldn't suggest eating it until it ripens.

  • I member

  • WHY DONT U MAKE ONE OR COMMISSION ONE

  • Dolphin and whale shaped cereal swimming in the bowl of milk!

  • I wish they would do one on Tiger King

  • Okay but the lego and mystery cereal is genius

  • As time goes on, John has become more and more American with every episode.

    • Most foreigners look at US cereal isles and go “._. Why are there so fucking many of them! ._.”

    • His writers atleast ig

  • I would eat sugar corn locusts.

  • I know this is supposed to be funny, but this episode is too sad to laugh about. :( Cereal is breakfast-candy. It's supposed to get us hooked to the sweet tooth, when we are most vulerable to it, in our childhood, make us addicted to it and make it stay that way. It is marketed to children primarily, and with the connection with sports they want to make us think, that if we are just moving enough, we can get away with eating candy for breakfast every day without having to worry about obesety or our allover health. Wow, how false this is, says a former sugar addict, who it took more than 35 years to finally break out of that food addiction, to slim down from a BMI of almost 40 to just slightly overweight and to become healthy again.

  • Maybe the kids are adults and went to school and know the JUNK that goes into cereal(their pet rat died on a diet of that junk "food" so really how nutritious do you want to "claim" before we go to COURT with our nutritionists?

  • Uhh there's been three dozen new cereals in the past decade, the cereal aisle is twice as long as a decade ago. Just because they don't shake the world like when Reese's puffs or Trix first came out makes it less memorable, and that's pretty easy to see. A lot of his points are moot lately or, at best, weak. Wow, I get to downvote a John Oliver video for being baseless. Never would have thought.

  • So? Did Cheerios do it?

  • Yaba dabba do it

  • John is getting fat

  • John hates Marvel 🥲

  • Two things. 1. Nutri Grain is the cereal equivalent to Legos, stand on one and feel the pain. I dare you. 2. Does the USA have any healthy cereals? They all look like candy in a bowl and look like the central cause of the American obesity epidemic.

  • OK, I like the LEGO cereal idea, but if an adult steps on a LEGO cereal piece, it's got to do permanent injury

  • the cheerios twitter account is managed by an actual cheerio hoop it takes the cheerio hoop 35 minutes on average to type out a tweet so a little respect please john

  • Best ideas in a long time.

  • Dam Howell Hello there internet

  • Oh, and then there’s that wheatix shit that tastes like wood shavings.

  • I switched to cheezits for cereal for years now and I've had no regrets

  • 1. Cereal made from freeze-dried vegetables so you can eat instant breakfast soup. 2. Box of boba jellies mixed with powdered fruit and black tea. 3. The cereal is shaped like tiny meats, like bone-in ham, whole game hen, turkey leg, t-bone steak, pork chop. 4. Cereal comes in two-part packet: one is a bunch of crouton-sized dried biscuits and the other mixes with hot milk to make instant sausage gravy. 5. Coconut and mango flavor is woefully underused in cereals.

  • Here's one: slflow.info/town/sH2nfIB4mZXUq3g/video

  • I don't even eat cereal anymore but whenever I am in the cereal aisle I feel compelled to have tried every single one that exists

  • I don't know if it's what America wants, but it's clearly what John Oliver wants

  • Oh my god that was too funny, pls Kellogg’s tweet me.

  • Did this man really just say Frosted Flakes are trash?! You are dead to me John.

  • Have a lil leche with your cereal. Make ya laugh.....slflow.info/town/s4eti36NqKja0oQ/video

  • I can already see a cereal with the Illuminaty-pyramid mascot: Illuminutty - Now with extra Almonds

  • LOL this is an issue?

  • Ok who hates him enough to dislike a video where he rants about cereal

  • How has he not seen any of the new totally fucked up cereals?

  • John does his homework.

  • Mystery cereal is a great idea but what if they look the same and every single one of them tastes different.

  • as a goth adult i buy three boxes of booberry cereal during halloween and munch on it as a treat over the next few months and at this point it should just be a yearly cereal

  • "Is it what america wants?" It's what John Oliver wants

  • Did Cheerios do it tho?

  • Did you see together with pride kelloggs x GLAAD ?

  • John Oliver is a better SLflowr than mr beast. I don’t think anyone will argue about that

  • Why do we allow companies to poison our kids? Anyone?

  • "I'm John Oliver. This has been SLflow." 🤣🤣🤣

  • Honestly, I'm sick and tired of John Oliver's frivolous humour I decided to don't give him a damn, and so this is the last episode I've ever watched.

  • Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddie Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddie Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

  • I feel like dogshit when I eat lots of cereal. It's tasty, great texture, but it's horrible food.

  • Cereal for Goths: Emos Something FMLakes Blackened White (the black flakes make the milk turn gray) Blahberry Bites Life Bites (This is as crunchy as it gets. It just gets soggier and soggier from here on out.)

  • McDonalds. McBurger-O's? Disney. Never mind the flavour. It's sugary and has Disney princesses on the box. Sales: a buzillion. Oh jeez. 6 Princesses. Six cereals. The boxes form and fold and tab-A into Brekkie Palaces...

  • Cheerios come, for a short time, in heart shapes. They are adorable and fun to eat.

  • All this and not a mention of Kellogg's abandoning their Anti-Masturbation message??

  • Fruit Loops Marshmallows. Mic Drop.
