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 »
Drilling for oil makes us American girls hot and heavy! This Burger King commercial actually isn’t as offensive to Middle Easterners as it could be — shocking! — but it wouldn’t be a BK commercial if the women in it weren’t attractive, unthreatening airheads.
If you can stomach it, there’s a few more Burger King commercials found here and in the third spot, one of the women asks, “Do you guys drive camels to work in the morning?” and the other one asks, “Aren’t camels the ones with the humps?”

Burger King in the UK just debuted the creepiest new ad—it’s called “Shower Cam” and it’s a bizarre union of voyeurism and breakfast sandwiches. Any guy who certifies his age as 18+ can watch a sexy young woman disrobe and “shake her bits to the hits,” i.e. take a shower while warbling off-key to a song like “Love Machine.” It’s tag line is “The World’s First Guilt Free Shower Cam”—a rather creepy headline if you consider all the videos that were taped of ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews naked, without her knowledge. The only thing that’s remotely funny about it all is how the woman’s bikini top is shaped like hamburger buns. Keep reading »
Burger King must be sweatin’ the competition because their latest ad for the “Super Seven Incher” makes Carl’s Jr.’s raciest ads seem, well, subtle. And just in case the woman with her mouth agape didn’t convey enough sexual innuendo, the copy at the bottom reads, “Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER. Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American cheese, crispy onions and the A1 Thick and Hearty Steak Sauce.” Um, yeah. Click past the jump to see the full ad. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
