    Has anyone seen the new BK ad for the new Bacon Chedder Ranch burger. What the (expletive) are they trying to sell? It looks like someone at the marketing department was under the influence of drugs. And there is more scantily clad women than the law will allow. No wonder I hate Playboy, Enzyte commercials ("Bob";), and anything that trys to convey the message that "Sex Sells" Sorry for the rant, but that's just my opinion.

      Okay, sex never sells. I hate this ad because it's not trying to promote the new burger, and there are too much sex there. Why can't they go back to the ad campaign with the Burger King dude in bed with some guy, scaring him in the process. Now that's good advertising.

        I assume you're refering to the commercial with Hootie as a singing cowboy. Man, has he fallen! Not that I ever liked Hootie and the Blowfish but...what a drop in status for him!
        I've got a feeling that when he was was singing that jingle, his mind was singing something like...

        "I'm a black man in a honkey role,
        did not invest my money well.
        And now I'm on the tube,
        and I look like a boob,
        and my race has disowned me."

        Sad sad sad...

                  Okay, it has the Hooty guy singing while there are images of cowboys, Cowboy Cheerleaders, and some girl on a swing with the Burger King guy pushing the swing. At the end, the girl on the swing says, "Cooomme and get it." All this takes place in a weird place which is supposed to be psychadelic. which looks more a like a drug junkie's hallucination or what the Playboy guy dreams about. Damn I hate this ad.

                          I know, this is not how a burger company would sell its product. Here's how the planning probably went:

                          BK Exec 1: We need to find a way to sell our Bacon Cheddar Ranch
                          Marketing Guy 1: I know, why don't we hire some guy from Hootie and the Blowfish and set it in some guy's dream about the burger?
                          Exec 2: DAAAAMN! I like that idea, makes my idea look dumb. *unfolds paper in hand to show a talking BCR and his many friends*
                          MG1: Also, I'll have lots of scantily clad women as well, because sex sells!
                          BK Exec 1: Fine, we'll use that idea.
                          Burger King Man:Aw crap, I'd like to have lead role
                          Exec 1: No, but you can make a cameo
                          BKM: That's it, I quit, screw you Bob, I'm going to Mac's
                          MG2: Can I be the new Burger King Man?
                          Exec 1: Yeah why not, you were just silent for most of this skit
                          MG2: Whoo hoo! I'm Going to DisneyLand!

                          *Cue start of theme song of the ad*

                          And so, the new BKM was use in the ad. He then left to DisneyLand and attacked Kool-Aid Man, Tony the Tiger, and other mascots. He was sentenced for life at Mascot Prison, where the bad boys of advertising are kept. He eventually snuck out and now can be seen as a statue ad BK Headquarters, sneaking out at night.

                          The original BKM would become the new mascot for MacDonalds, replacing Ronald McDonald. Ronald swore revenge and defected to Wendy's and became Wendy's wife

                          The genius who came up with the ad got lots of money and used it to make his house look like the place in the ad and married the girl from the
                          ad who was on the swing. They constantly have good times together

                          Exec 2 eventually became CEO of Burger King, immediately launching his new ad campaign with talking burgers. After the first ad premiered, sales of Burger King hamburgers dropped because people were freaked out by the ads, because it may have promoted Drug use, He was fired from his post three days later.

                          As for the Exec 1, that's another story........


                          And that's something to think about

                            yes, that's how all marketing decisions happen.

                            moving along.

                            personally, i think it is genius, hilarious and cuts through the crap. it doesn't pander, but gets your attention.

                                  but have you gotten laid since the purchase? that's the burning question.

                                    It's one of those ads that make you say "okaaay..." It is a little pointless but it gets your attention. The girl in the swing was Brooke Burke from the Wild on E! show

                                    Hooty and the blowfish suuuck ..i'll take Blues Traveler or Tom Petty anyday (whyyy did I have a crush on Tom years ago?? :(:oops: )

                                        Don't forget about the Whopperettes! It's like the Radio City Rockettes but its much worse. Who wants to see a 1 minute dance and musical number with people dressed as ingreidents for a burger? God!

                                          You think thats weird, did you see the recent Burger King commercial. It has a guy riding a chicken in a rodeo and the song is talking about "big bucking chicken." At the end it says "the only way to beat it is to eat it." :shock:
