Lynx product depicts a young woman who is screaming for help since she has swum out too far, a young man, presumably a life saver, swims out to her rescue. A shark fin comes into view, the young man is seen swimming towards the woman to save her- the next image is shown underwater where the young man wrestles with the shark. The images portray him punching the shark several times, the young man is seen leaving the water carrying the 'unconscious' woman.

The next few scenes don't make continuity sense but he last appears on the beach in an astronaut suit with the young woman jogging towards him in the style of the movie "10" (from the 80s) and the Lynx product is then shown.

0179/1312 June 2013Kellogg (Aust) Pty Ltd

These two advertisements for Kellogg LCM Original Cereal Bars are part of the LCM “exciting facts” promotion, and were broadcast during April and May 2013. An associated “exciting facts” app, available for iPhone and android, is promoted within the advertisements.
The second advertisement, entitled ‘Snails’, depicts a girl in school uniform looking at an LCM bar in her lunchbox, reading another ‘exciting fact’: “snails can sleep for up to three years!” She glances around at an overgrown wall, and the camera zooms down a dark nook inside the wall, where two animated snails are sleeping in a bedroom (complete with nightcaps, bedroom furniture and gender-assigned pink and blue pyjamas), snoring loudly. The girl’s face is seen peering in as she whispers “nighty night”. The voiceover and end frame are the same as for the ‘stegosaurus’ advertisement.
The LCM exciting facts app for iPhone and android features a light blue background and colourful, cartoonish pictures representing the different classes of ‘exciting facts’, including ‘animals’, ‘sport’ and ‘silly’. It sends an exciting fact out each day, which can be written on the promotional LCM packaging.

0180/1312 June 2013Kellogg (Aust) Pty Ltd

These two advertisements for Kellogg LCM Original Cereal Bars are part of the LCM “exciting facts” promotion, and were broadcast during April and May 2013. An associated “exciting facts” app, available for iPhone and android, is promoted within the advertisements.
The first advertisement, entitled ‘Stegosaurus’ opens with a young boy in school uniform sitting in the school yard. He produces an LCM bar from his lunchbox and reads in a sceptical tone: “a stegosaurus’s brain was the size of a walnut”. He glances around to see another school boy pushing on a door clearly marked ‘pull’. As he watches, the boy sprouts a bright green, animated tail, which grows into a full dinosaur shape (notably not a stegosaurus). The first boy looks on in wonder. An adult voiceover says ‘LCM write-on wrappers exciting facts: another fun way to surprise them’. The end frame shows the LCM product, with the words “Download the Exciting Facts app”.
