Disclaimer: At 3:25, our editors accidentally used a military uniform that is not a U.S. Military Uniform. This was not intentional, and we acknowledge we should have caught this sooner. The LATER images ARE in fact US Navy.

We all know the mouth scraping-ly good cereal known as Cap'n Crunch. What you may NOT know is that the good ole "Cap'n" is no captain at all! In fact he is nothing but a LIAR! You see, this well loved cereal mascot has been masquerading for YEARS as an honorable captain but today, Loyal Theorists, we are pulling back the curtain on this so-called captain!

    You could've also mentioned the "PACT Act" which makes animal cruelty a federal felony, and is punishable up to seven years in federal prison.

  • Jellyman

    Never realized Cap’n Crunch had so much lore. 🤯

  • TBNREnder

    MatPat, Cap'n Horatio Magellan Crunch is not a real person, which is why he's not in military records in our world, and his world is a made up world in which he lives in, complete at the control of his creators and advertisers, so maybe there's alternate realities or something, since the creators could very easily add in time travel and alternate realities and make it cannon to counter this video, also, in Cap'n Crunch's world, 3 stripes could very well mean Captain, and if not, he would eventually assume the title seeing how he's been moving up the ranks, so unless you can get some proof that nothing supernatural is gonna show up and be made cannon, this video is just speculation, except the murder part, the Jean Lefoot thing was messed up.

    if they wanted to they could just change his design alittle to make him a real captain,but I guess it's not a huge issue for creator of the mascot to change the design,give mr crunch a promotion dammit XD and wow I don't even remember the dog or the kids,they clearly grew up and bailed
