John Gilchrist is best known for his role as Mikey in the Life cereal
commercials in the 1970s. He would play this role alongside his two
real-life brothers. The commercial was filmed in 1971 and he was just 3
years old at the time. By the year 1972 it was being aired nationally.
It ran on the air until 1986.

Gilchrist and his siblings got into acting by the suggestion of a family
friend, and so this commercial was an easy shoo-in for all of them. The kids
were very comfortable in the commercial since they were all actual brothers.
All of them ended up making more money in one day than their father made in
a week!
