Why does Burger KIng have the dumbest commercials? whopperfreakout.com . . . . .

    I'm sure you've all seen those stupid Burger KIng commercials where they tell people at a Las Vegas BK that they no longer serve the Whopper, and the reactions are like 5 year olds who got their toys taken away. My favorite is the trophy wife type in her minivan who says "I want to see your manager when I come up to the window!!!!!"

    This deviant humanity is also featured in a too-long video at whopperfreakout.com, as advertised in the commercial. The second half is contrived, as people order the Whopper and they give them something else. That's not a tribute to the Whopper, it's a tribute to people wanting to get what they ordered, no matter where they are.

    These aren't as bad as the office Burger King ones, where the designated "hot chick" is inexplicably hanging out in the mail room when nerd boy comes down to get his order.

    Their ads push me away. Viva la Big Mac.

    Rant over.

    They're not as bad as the Sonic ads, but their food doesn't make up for the shitty ads.

    I agree. Horrible ads that mock the hell out of the subjects.

    It's a Whopper. It ain't that good.

    Side note to BYH: The George Mason jacket I bought you the other day should arrive at your door soon. Merry Festivus!

    Burger King can't even make decent fries, how are they going to have clever commercials?

    Even stupider than the whopper freakout ones were the ones with the moms wanting to put a hit out on the King because he made a sandwich better than mom did.

    And let's not forget this beauty:

    Yeah, but doesn't that happen in real life?

    I loathe all fast food and only buy it when I've got no other options, which is rare. Way overpriced for the quality of the food that you get. And many places challenge the concept of "fast food."

    Stupid commercials? I rarely watch them. If I'm watching a game, I'll swap out the split screen to watch something else during a commercial. And if I'm watching a show recorded on DVR, I zip right through the commercials.

    The Whopper has declined in quality the last 10-12 years, I grant you. But their fries kick Jack in the Box's ass and their iced coffee is yummier than McD's.

    Oh, NSFW, i suppose. And NSF other situations too, perhaps.
