Big Rock Burger Mountain

Postby Little Timmy » Mon Mar 28, 2005 8:15 pm

Well, someone had to start this thread. Surely a few of you knuckleheads have seen the latest Burger King commercial and wondered, "Wow, isn't that guy in the cowboy suit Darius Rucker, aka Hootie, of Blowfish fame?"
Why, yes.

I can't wait to see the next BK commerical for this marvel:

The really disturbing thing about that commercial is the milkmaid-looking chicks swinging around the buckets of ranch dressing. Also, is that Brooke Burke at the end?

Not that I'm a huge Darius Rucker fan, but I really hope he's doing that for the ironic value and not 'cause he's that hard up. Sheesh.

Oh, and the big Burger King face guy REALLY creeps me out in the BK commericals

Oh, I don't. I hope he's that hard up; I still haven't forgiven him for foisting that horrible Cracked Rearview on us oh so many years ago. As Jake once said, Karma, motherfucker!!!!

I'm totally going to add Fairweather Johnson to that thread of underrated albums by great artists.

Is is sad that I remembered that album name off the top of my head?

From the AP:

"Burger King's...Enormous Omelet Sandwich carries 730 calories and 47 grams of fat and comes with two eggs, sausage, three strips of bacon and two slices of melted American cheese on a bun. It's heftier than a Whopper hamburger, which weighs in at 700 calories and 42 grams of fat.

Officials at Miami-based Burger King Corp. said that healthier choices are also available, but surveys showed customers wanted bigger sandwiches."

.....................

I won't go near the Enormous Omelet Sandwich, since I believe it should really be called the Enormous Punch in the Stomach. However, I love Burger King's ad campaign. The reincarnated King himself is fantastically surreal and twisted. He has a human body, but his rubberized face smiles with a benevolence only a ruler who regularly injects his subjects with four cups of grease could muster.
