What Little Mikey From the 1970’s Life Cereal Commercials Looks Like Today

John Gilchrist, who played “Mikey” in TV ad, still likes it after all these years.

Oh, and one more thing, He is most certainly not dead.

“The folklore is that I ate Pop Rocks, the exploding candies, and I drank a soda and my stomach blew up,” he said, recalling a long-ago urban legend.

John actually still eats life cereal and remembers being on the commercial fondly.


Watch the original commercial below.


Dear Sister and Brother,

1. God never fails.

2. God will never turn his back on you.

3. I pray that whatever you are going through in your life, God will show you a way through it and that you be showered with His mercy and grace.

A relationship starts with communication…remember to talk to Jesus daily..
