Burger King….. You Suck!

Well, Burger King has sunk to a new low. Their ads have been idiotic for quite some time. Now they’ve gone for blatantly offensive.

I’m not going to post the image… you can go here if you want to see it:

Needless to say, I’m not grabbing BK food any more when I’m in a rush. With all the driving back and forth between DC and NYC lately, and all the time spent on the NJ Turnpike…. well I’m somewhat ashamed to admit that my “default” driving the schlep meal has been a whopper jr. with cheese on the Turnpike…. no more…

If you object to the ad as well, you can call Burger King’s Customer Relations line at 305-378-3535, Monday – Friday from 9 am to 5 pm EST.

Apparently this nasty ad is out of an agency in Singapore…. I guess that’s what you get when you “outsource” to foreign shores… no clue what is going to be totally offensive to the culture you’re trying to reach. Although it does seem that someone at BK’s headquarters should have reviewed the ad before approval and been smart enough to kill it…. apparently that’s not so.
