Cap’n Crunch Confronts Controversy

Did you know that Cap’n Crunch has his own digital late-night talk show? Because I didn’t. You don’t even need to watch it to know that he’s better than Jay Leno. The latest episode of The Cap’n Crunch Show addressed a recent uniform controversy about whether or not the Cap’n is indeed a captain. (At this point, you’re wondering what’s going on. You aren’t alone). But the “controversy” has been getting play from Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, and Leno, so Brooklyn-based shop Huge has been behind the latest self-deprecating content from everyone’s favorite cereal captain. The above clip runs about a minute and reveals the ultimate secret: Cap’n's eyebrows are actually attached to his hat, not his head. It’s good-natured and self-aware, things that are hard to find most days.

If you happen to be interested, the next episode of The Cap’n Crunch Show airs July 9 at 11:30 p.m.
