FACT: The Rolling Stones Made A Jingle For “Rice Krispies” Cereal

In 1963, The Rolling Stones recorded a short jingle for a Rice Krispies cereal television advertisement in which the group performed incognito. The jingle was written by Brian Jones for marketing company J. Walter Thompson (JWT) and had a short run on British TV in 1964.  The band was paid 400£ (3440£ today) or $5,845.08 today in US currency.

Check it out.

Sounds crazy to hear Mick Jagger singing about cereal.  Here’s what The Rolling Stones looked like way back then in 1963…

Update: Mad Men – Tea Leaves (Season 5, Episode 3)

Coincidently, in a 2012 episode of “Mad Men,” Don Draper (Jon Hamm) goes on the hunt to get The Rolling Stones to sing a jingle for Heinz Baked Beans, wanting them to change the lyrics of “Time Is on My Side” to “Heinz is on my Side“.
