A viral image of a cereal box in landscape mode left Twitter confused


When we visit a supermarket, there are certain things that our eyes are used to seeing. Bottles of ketchup, sachets of dals or boxes of cereal – each is anchored in our visual memory. However, one Twitter user was quite surprised to see something unusual while visiting the supermarket. The user walked down the cereal aisle to find the usual cereal boxes lined up vertically in “landscape mode” – that is, redesigned to be aligned horizontally. Take a look at the photo she shared:

The photo was posted to Twitter by @lauralexx, where it has received over 370,000 likes and counts. “When did the cereals pass to the landscape”, asked the user in the legend. The viral photo has also been retweeted over 48,000 times and also garnered over 1.3,000 comments.

In the viral photo, boxes of cereal could be seen stacked on the shelf of a supermarket. There were choices of crispy rice crisps, cornflakes, cocoa lollipops, etc. in the cereal box aisle. While 2-3 boxes on the left side were regular boxes, the remaining 4-5 cereals were actually quite different and unique due to the orientation of the box.

Twitter users were quite disturbed to see the bizarre image of viral cereal boxes in “landscape mode”. Some thought it was just a marketing experiment, while others couldn’t figure out how the cereal would be poured from these giant boxes. A few users also explained that these boxes were designed according to the space requirements of certain supermarkets and stores.
