Mini Wheats Staged a Fun Dating Event Where Kids Were in Control

Many instances that should be fun dating events are often turned into stressful situations that are filled with the pressure of trying to make a good first impression. In order to get people to lighten up, Mini Wheats put together a speed dating event where kids were totally in control.

One female dater was given an ear piece so that she could hear the directions given to her by kids in a nearby room. Some of the outrageous things the kids had her do included stuffing pencils up her nose and and interrupting a date to walk her imaginary pet. All of this ties in to the brand's 'Feed Your Inner Kidult' initiative.

Kellogg Canada also released the equally hilarious 'Kids Secretly Control a Fitness Class,' which also reminds people to lighten up and find their inner "kidult."
