For Some Reason You Can Now Eat Breakfast With Cleopatra In VR

Kellogg’s new cereal might be for weirdly specific dieters who only eat foods from Ptolemaic Egypt, but this promotion is really ridiculous.

Ok everybody, this is about to get weird. So Kellogg’s is promoting its new cereal line, called Ancient Grains, using the latest and greatest in virtual reality technology – which is weird, right? We love breakfast foods in a major way, but strapping on an Oculus Rift, some noise-cancelling headphones, and picking up a spoon-controller hybrid thing to be teleported through time for a virtual breakfast with Cleopatra and her awkwardly underdressed guards – that seems a little over the top. 
 
Using the spoon-controller to scoop real life cereal into your face while it mimics your movements in the real world, the Oculus Rift headset then tracks your head, giving you a real-time look at what it might have been like to have breakfast with the Queen of Egypt. As of yet, there is no evidence to support Kellogg’s assertion that Cleopatra was a cereal person and not, perhaps, more into eggs. 
 
Check out the 3D video below, just try not to freak out when you end up in breakfast purgatory at the end.
