Will a sheep shaving a man's back convince you to buy the new General Mills cereal?

General Mills’ first new cereal in more than 15 years now has viral advertisements and you won't be able to look away.

With a tagline of "Humans Can't Resist," the Tiny Toast commercials show a role reversal with animals in human roles – and vice versa – that are a special combination of hilarious, bizarre and nightmare-inducing.

The commercials were developed by Walrus, a New York-based advertising agency, Adweek reported.

Other commercials feature a Bluetooth-wearing pigeon just trying to enjoy his beachfront morning read, humans flying into a bird family's window and (most disturbing of all, in this writer's opinion) a sheep shearing a man's back hair.

The Golden Valley-based food giant announced the toast-shaped cereal would be part of their latest effort to provide a food that’s free of artificial ingredients.
