“Is this an ad for blow jobs or fast food?”
That’s a question posed by “Jane Doe,” the young model who appeared in that infamous, beej-inspired Burger King ‘super seven incher’ ad. The print ad, which ran in Singapore, features a pretty blonde woman with red lipstick opening her mouth as a big Burger King sandwich heads straight towards her. It’s one of the more explicit allusions to hummers in advertising history (which is saying something).
Well, now “Jane Doe” is speaking out. Keep reading »
Snack technology is one of my primary interests. I really enjoy seeking out the newest and best in snackovation. Which is why I really have to tip my hat to the fine folks at Burger King, who have created a wonderful trough-like invention to make eating gross fast food even better. But how does it work? Basically, the Burger Holder works similarly to the Sky Mall fave wine glass holder necklace but looks charmingly like a heavy-duty corrective dental device.
You wear it around your neck for hands-free eating, so you can get back to whatever it is you were doing (texting/playing D&D/writing Power Rangers fanfic) before. The only problem with the BK Burger Holder? It’s not a real product. Yet! [YouTube]
At Burger King, you can “have it your way.” And one Japanese guy really took that to heart, by customizing his burger with more than 1,000 pieces of bacon. My very special next boyfriend candidate likes bacon so much that he had the fryolater workers at his fave fast food joint add 1,050 slabs to his sandwich, rendering it absolutely impossible to actually shove in one’s mouth. Not that he didn’t try. Which is what I actually admire in him — his sandwich fortitude, or sandwichatude, if you will. It warms my cold vegan heart. [Huffington Post]
Check out this hamburger eyeshadow look from a Burger King ad that ran in the Netherlands. Is it just me or is it … kinda pretty? I love the brown shade of the bun and those bright green eyelashes. Totally hoping this becomes a spring beauty trend. [Buzzfeed]
This is Burger King’s new Pizza Burger. It is four “flame-broiled” beef patties topped with mozzarella and pepperoni and served on a nine-inch sesame seed bun. It clocks in at 2,520 calories, but Burger King, ever so concerned about the diets of American citizens, insists that it is meant to be shared. When your new menu offering comes with what is essentially a warning, there is a problem. “Not intended for one person!” “Do not eat alone!” Do. Not. Want. Keep reading »
