Sometimes, when we’re coming up with a Talent Show idea, we need look no further than a band’s name. With The Get Up Kids, for instance, we knew we had to do something morning related, and thus the generic vs. name-brand cereal challenge. With a full slate of name-brand vs. generic, Wal-Mart brand cereal laid out in front of them, The Get Up Kids’ Matt Pryor watches as bandmate James Dewees plows through bowl after bowl of sad, generic Trix, Froot Loops, and Frosted Mini-Wheats. While some are easier to tell than others—the non-specific shapes of the Marshmallow Mateys make them easily distinguishable from the swankier Lucky Charms—others prove more of a challenge.
All of The Get Up Kids’ records are available now on iTunes.
