If there’s one thing we’ve learned from this Cap’n Crunch scandal, it’s that people take their cereal mascots very seriously. After Foodbeast challenged the Cap’n’s title as “Captain” in Cap’n Crunch is a Liar and a Fraud, fans worldwide erupted in both outrage and dismay. The Crunchgate story made headlines from CNN to Time and eventually, the actual Cap’n was forced to address the controversy in person.
And by person we mean the cartoon character boarded a cartoon ship and addressed a real-life audience. Funny how things work, isn’t it?
In other breaking news, the Cap’n has only four fingers (gasp) and his eyebrows are attached to his hat (say it ain’t so!)
Watch the, erm, press conference below:
