Im not really sure where this post should go so i put it here seeing as it is about frosties but also suicide too hmmm well move it if ya want.

Has anyone seen the frosties advert with the boy marching along the road singing "Its gonna taste great"?

Is it really true that he killed himself? It would just be soo sad if he did. The ad practically caused national riots people hated it that much!
Well it was really annoying and cheesy!

Or maybe the whole thing is just a rumour and this thread is irrelevant. I just want the truth dammit!

Aww, I entered this thread hoping for death by Frosties.

And as for your question, I dunno. A (very) brief check on Google says something about a stabbing.

^ A kid stabbed himself?

I was hoping that the tiger dude would've killed himself, afterall, he's a cartoon, so the producers would have made it funny, with frostie flakes for blood, and stuff.

I haven't seen a Frosties comerical in ages!

It's a cereal brand, the one with Tony the Tiger going around shouting "It's Frosted flakes, they're more than good, they're great!"

Aren't they just called Frosted Flakes here? ("here" being the US). I thought it was only Frosties in the UK.

I dunno, we call them frosties here. ("here" being Orlando). Wait a sec....unless we're talking about those Frosties (Icey's) with the polar bear dude...?

Cookie Crisps are nasty. Now Cinnamon Toast Crunch mixed with Honey Nut Cheerious and choclate milk....that is the best it gets. tongue.gif.

Yep. Frosties = Slurpee = ice slush pop drink. The cereal is Frosted Flakes here in Canada.

I thought the topic had something to do with brain freeze. Which really isn't fatal as far as I know. biggrin.gif

Sorry - don't know the annoying commercial or the actor in question.

I can see why everyone hated the ad.

Just searched frosties advert on google. No one has said anything good. All I have found is that the kid died.
EDIT: Wikipedia says the kid died of cancer.

Im sory to dissapoint you! But it would not have been death by frosties hence the suicide bit tongue.gif

I got the cancer thing too when i wikipediaed it but a stabbing? havent heard that one.


Ooh i didnt know that frosties were named differently! (do the ads still feature tony the tiger?)

And as for the best cereal in the world it has to be mini weetabix how could you beat the tiny goodness?

I wouldn't bet on Wikipedia being accurate about the matter. There do seem to be various references to a stabbing of someone else by the same name (Joe. C) around, but that was supposedly another person. There is also an MySpace Page for 'Frosties Twat', but it seems rather dubious. It also contains swearing, if you're interested.

I have once again been informed by the peanut gallery that I should think before typing. dry.gif
The Slush Puppy is a Froster not a Frostie. smile.gif
Perhaps I have to walk over to the corner store for one more often?

It's all big lies.

It was in the Metro this morning. There are loads of rumours on the internets that either a) he died of cancer and being on the Frosties advert was his dying wish or cool.gif he was getting so horribly bullied that he topped himself.

But the offical word is that he's living happily in his native South Africa and is fine.

Silly internets.

Having now seen the advert, I am saddened to hear the news that he's not dead.

Innit? But for the first five seconds where I thought he was dead, I felt really bad for hating him so venomously. But then I realised he deserved it.

Making the myspace page even more dubious, seeing as how it suggests he's living in "Caterham, United Kingdom".

Do you think Frosties would still show the advert if he had been stabbed/topped himself?
