Controversies Associated with SOS

Pop-Tarts

SOS organized a "procott," in which Sailor Moon fans would buy a particular sponsor's product on a pre-arranged day. According to SOS, this surge in sales would send a message to the sponsor and encourage the completion of dubbing the Sailor Moon R season, which had been left unfinished by DiC at the time. The product chosen, through a poll administered by SOS, was Kellogg's unfrosted strawberry Pop-Tarts. On Saturday, December 14, 1996, fans were asked to go out and buy as many Pop-Tarts as they could, and according to online accounts, many of them did.[citation needed]

It should be noted that before the procott took place Irwin had already arranged to sponsor the rest of the season.
