Milk and Cereal originated in 2000 by the band G. Love & Special Sauce on the album "Front Porch Loungin'." Another group known as VTsFinest did an Internet meme to it. The original video features two then-students at Virginia Tech named Matt Feidler and Dan Loveless lip syncing to the song "Milk and Cereal" by Both students use spoons in place of microphones and utilize a box of Apple Cinnamon Cheerios and a gallon jug of milk as props.

The original video spawned several recreations, including one by two students from the University of California, one featuring the puppet Yoda from Star Wars, another by a single high school student named Riley Harmon, who "cloned" himself in post-production to simulate the duet, several claymation versions, and one by former Formula One driver Scott Speed along with his friend and fellow race driver Colin Fleming. G Love himself also created a video alongside his young son.

The "Milk and Cereal" song was released by the band on an EP called Rappin' Blues EP. It is only available through online stores such as Amazon.com and eBay.
