Jackson 5 & Post Cereals

For those who don't know, the Jackson 5 made commercials for Post cereals back in the 70s. Here's a collection of their commercials. I hope once the J5 cartoons come out on DVD, they'll put these commercials on there

The Post cereals they've advertised

They also had blow-up messgaes (balloons) inside Honeycomb, bit I couldn't find a big enough picture of it.

I feel like awwwing over them the way I do over little kittens.....but here we are 40 years later and look what they're doing to their mother! But it's so hard to believe that I have seen 4 of 5 in person, and nearly saw the other...

Has anyone noticed Ralph (Michael Evans of Good Times) Carter was in one of those commercials?

It's called show business for a reason. It’s 90% business and 10% show. If you don’t know your business…you’re in trouble! ~ Johnnie Taylor / Basically, music is nothing but prostitution anyway and managers are the pimps ~ Millie Jackson

If it were possible to keep some of those boxes intact for forty years, they would be nice collector's items especially with the album and blow-up balloon.
