Cereal game on point👌@lifemadedelish https://t.co/luZmZIGW8T

Nothing says "good morning" quite like an epic bat flip.

Remember when Toronto Blue Jays star Jose Bautista broke one out after belting the biggest home run of the 2015 American League Division Series against the Texas Rangers?

Yeah, now it’s on Canadian cereal boxes:

Bautista explained how this came about to Katrina Clarke of the Toronto Star last month:

Normally when we’re travelling, we try to get comfort food. Cereal is definitely comfort food for me. I posted (photos of cereal) a few times on social media. A couple of the employees (at General Mills Canada) noticed and we just started talking, and today we’re here.

And there you have it.

On Wednesday, Joey Bats posted a picture of himself with the cereal, which drew a vintage response from Toronto politician Norm Kelly:
