Fast food commercials are just putrid these days. Have you guys seen these new BK commercials for their bacon chicken pile of crap sandwich?

Basically, a guy eats this big ol' sandwich and then all off a sudden is attacked by a pissed off because they are "cheating on beef." Why would a cow be pissed off over the fact that she isn't being eaten?

BK ads are, by definition, illogical.

I actually *almost* thought these were funny - but NEVER thought they were anything short of STUPID. If MissyDWolf caught ME in a strange hotel room with 'SpicyMcChicken' (without having informed her of, and offered her some of the same), I'd not only be going 'against the grain', per se, but the commercial wouldn't have lasted as long as the BK one, as I'd already be dead.

Hehe... I'd like to see what was written about Burger King in the Guide... probably would be hilariously accurate.

i just saw one of these spots where an angry cow knocks down what looks like a motel door because the guy decided to not eat it??? huh I'm so confused!?
 
Isn't this at direct odds w/ the chik-fil-a slogans of "eat mor chikin"?
Cows--get an organized, united message to give to us carnivores because I'm really confused by your mixed messages...if you want me to eat you, I will!  Tongue

Call me a weak-minded thrall, but this ad actually made my friend and I go on a midnight BK run.

But we both did make note of the, "Why would a cow be mad if you didn't eat it?"

i bet you if you got that bacon chicken sandwich that it looked NOTHING like the ones shown in the commercial....BK sandwiches never look the way they're advertised!

...uh, well...if you were married to her and not 'paying proper attention'...it could lead to "Cheated On BY Beef" - and it is beyond me as to who might be ready for THOSE ads...

JP, I never thought about it before I met one of my dear friends, but she is a food stylist.  They're the ones who arrange the food to look appetizing on the menus, in the ads, on the packaging itself.  We were in Costco one day, and she pointed to a package of frozen chicken and said, "That's mine! I did that!"  They have to pay people to make the food look good!

Oooooooh so scandalous you're eating chicken instead of beef. Oh you wanton man you. So pimp. If James Brown lived long enough he'd be writing songs about you.

I wondered the same thing when I first saw these commercials.  WTF would the cow be mad that it wasn't slaughtered and eaten?
 
BK chicken sandwiches are way good btw.  I don't care what they look like.

Well, everyone does copy everyone. KFC copied McDonald's, and soon BK and Wendy's followed. Trust me, Wendy's and Jack in the Box will follow BK's copying ways.
