The Internet has been having fun with parodies of Serial, the highly-addictive, awesome true crime podcast out of Sarah Koenig
The latest is "Cereal," from author Kyle Scheele. It's a lot like Serial but the mystery at hand is a missing bowl of Fruity Pebbles.
The video has some solid lines: "Did you catch that part? Jay's real name isn't even Jay. It's short for James. James Horatio Crunch, as in the son of Horatio Magellan Crunch, or as most people know him — Captain Crunch."
There's even a pretty great parody of the now-infamous MailChimp ad.
This and previous parodies will have to keep us sane this dark week before Serial returns again on Dec. 4.
