Lady Gaga 'Marry The Night' Video: Cheerios Okay With Appearance In Freakout

Honey Nut Cheerios is a part of a complete breakfast. Even for Lady Gaga.

One of the most curious moments in Lady Gaga's epic, self-mythologizing "Marry The Night" video involves a down on her luck, pre-fame Gaga suffering a breakdown on epic proportions. There's nudity, wild dancing and, well, very sloppily indulging of honey-splashed toasted oats.

"We feel that people express their passion in a lot of different ways," a rep for the cereal company told TMZ. "This was certainly a first!"

It is, to say the least, a very different version of how the breakfast cereal is generally depicted on television, replacing a friendly-if-overwhelmed cartoon bee with a nude performance artist Grammy winner in the throes of temporary insanity. It's to their credit that the cereal will remain in the video: having to replace it with corn flakes, or, gasp, some sort of store brand generic copy would be a true travesty.
