Burger King Ad Execs are perverted fools–Burger King wins the Asshole Business Award for this week

April 15, 2009

I saw this video from a Yahoo news link, which has a weird objectification of women going while talking about SpongeBob’s butt. If it was all about Spongebob, then why are women dressed in schoolgirl clothing shaking their ass with phone books back there. If Sir MixAlot was really focusing on SpongeBob, then SpongeBob should be dancing, not some weird Burger King groupies who mimic the moves of a sexually graphic music video. Joanna Douglas, of Yahooo’s Shine staff, you have missed the boat. What part of you doesn’t realize this is inappropriate for kids? Just because SpongeBob appears doesn’t make this a child-friendly ad. I would be afraid if you were making parenting decisions with that brain. Campy, as Douglas calls this ad, is when there is something childlike going on–having adult women shake their butts with phone books in their pants dressed in short-shorts definitely isn’t campy. Just because Josephine Douglas has watched the ad “almost 100 times,” doesn’t mean she has any clue what she is writing about. I don’t like Burger King much to begin with, but this definitely impacts my buying choices. I have a little girl, and I in no way want my daughter to aspire to or think it’s funny to dance around for some Burger King guy while he sings about how he likes it. Burger King, you just got the Asshole Business Award of the week for this one.  I had enough with the mini burgers, which if it were designed by women would be hinting that men with small dicks are just as tasty, but really, Sir MixAlot and kids just don’t mix.  Sure makes Burger King’s playhouses seem like pedophile playgrounds doesn’t it?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Burger King was in trouble for mocking the Mexican flag, and Burger King just pulled the ad.  How about pulling the ad execs altogether?

    I dont recall anyone complaining about this song being used in Shrek, the producers probably thought that was safe precedent and considered this shoot more as conventional humour than actually inapropriate. I call it as a mistake in good fun.

    That said, I wouldnt eat there either, but that has more to do with the quality of their food.
