Burger King Will Pay For The Wedding Of Mr. Burger And Ms. King Because Romance Is Still Alive, Somewhere

Joel Burger and Ashley King have been together since they were in the fifth grade, and it seemed fated that they were meant to be.

Burger King’s ‘Black Burger’ Even Has Black Cheese

Who knows how many cheeseburger-noshing rules will be broken by this new sandwich from Burger King, but hey—anything’s better than meat-scented perfume, right? BK Japan’s “Kuro Burger” (or “Black Burger”) is apparently hitting restaurants there on Sept. 19, according to promotional images shown on the restaurant’s Facebook page. The “goth-like” burger, as the Guardian call…

Model Says She Was “Face Raped” By Burger King’s ‘Seven Incher’ Blowjob Ad

“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 a…

You Really Could Be The King Of Burgers With This Burger King Burger Holder

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

Evening Quickies: Burger King Debuts Bacon Sundae

What obesity epidemic? On Thursday, Burger King will debut a 510-bacon sundae for its summertime menu. Did you know Burger King had a “summertime menu”? I didn’t either. This vanilla ice cream with fudge, caramel and bacon crumbles packs in 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar. Did I mention there’s a…

Be My Boyfriend: Guy Who Customized Whopper With 1,050 Strips of Bacon

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…

Burger King Unveils The Latest Trend In Eye Makeup

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]…

The Crazy Gross Sandwiches Need To Stop

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…

Fact: Burger King Thinks You’re A Moron

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…

Kudos To Burger King, For That Whopper Of A Creepy Ad!

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…

Burger King Wants Their Super Seven Incher Sandwich To Remind You Of Giving Head

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…

What Are Your Rules For Friendship On Facebook?

Burger King ran a promotion this month called “Whopper Sacrifice,” in which a free burger was offered to anyone who deleted 10 friends on Facebook. When Burger King started sending notifications to castoffs letting them know they’d been dumped for a tenth of a whopper, Facebook suspended the campaign. All this got me thinking: what…

Sex Can Sell Anything, Even Fast Food

This Arby’s commercial always makes us laugh, and it kind of puts us in the mood for some of those yummy curly fries. But isn’t it strange that sexually charged ads can sell fast food? There is nothing attractive about the gross feeling you get after eating a cheeseburger and a large fry.
