Recent Burger King ad campaigns

Is it just me or has BK hired the absolute, hands-down worst ad agency in the world lately? First they came out with the guy in the fairy looking outfit sporting a serial-killer grinning face, which was spooky enough. I still shiver remembering the commercial where the guy opens his curtains in the morning and that evil looking clown / king / serial killer is standing out there grinning... I'm sorry, but if I opened my curtains and saw that thing standing out there I'd say hello with two rounds of 00 buckshot to its face.

Next we have some rejects from the gwar tour screaming nonsensically about greasy chicken fries. I'm sorry, but what the hell is that all about? And now they're pushing cellphone ringtones with the same music. If I hear that crap going off anywhere in the vicinity of my personal space, I'm going to have to start swinging.

I haven't eaten at BK (or micky d's, for that matter) in years, and it's safe to say that I ain't ever going to step foot in one again. Greasy fried junkfood garbage is bad enough, but this brilliantly lowest-common-denominator ad campaign seals the deal. It's a shining example of everything that's so terribly not right with the world.

-if you hear someone with the “ringtone” you might want to enlighten them, everyone deserves education. suggest some better, healthier, cheaper places to eat. you might tell them that the ringtones they have adopted are the attempt of the fast food business, trying their best, to attract them. that they spend millions of dollars attracting them to their “healthy", and “cheap meals.” not to mention the “support programs"(you know, to the “needy” blacks who need fast food to “get them by", gosh, might even make them a happy family). explain to them that they are the target of the fast food’s business campaign- poor, uneducated, minorities. the whole thing makes me sick. -amy

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
It’s on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!
