Mary Lou Retton should eat more Wheaties

Mlrcerealbox Sad progression: glorious Wheaties box (1984) to badly Photoshopped Wrigley’s Excel gum ad (2007). People are reporting sightings of these Excel posters in Canada (Excel is apparently the Canadian version of Eclipse), and they’re as baffled as we are. Did Mary Lou sign off on this crap? Related: an ad from the ’90s with Mary Lou touting Revco pharmacies.
