I like Burger King’s ad campaigns

**Update 3: The hits keep coming! Check out Burger King Flame: A body spray of seduction, with a hint of flame-broiled meat. Just keep clicking. It’s hilarious. Thanks to Paul for this one.**

**Update 2: If you didn’t see SNL last night (1/10/09), you missed a hilarious parody of Whopper Virgins. Go here to see the video.**

**Update: Mr Justin Bajan has been kind enough to remind me of another great BK ad campaign: The Whopper Freakout**

Since the last post was a little lengthy, I’ll keep this one to the point. There are three that I like in particular:

1) Subservient Chicken: Go to a website and boss around a guy dressed up in a horribly frightening chicken costume. I won’t spoil the fun for you on here, but go check it out if you haven’t already.

2) Whopper Virgins: Despite the offended elitists who would rather Americans never interact as Americans with another culture, I love this video. The BK team goes to random villages around the world and gets people who have never tasted a burger to do a taste test between the Whopper and the Big Mac. No, the fact that a random Inuit villager likes the Whopper shouldn’t influence you too much (after all, his meat of choice is seal meat), but it’s always cool to see other cultures react to each other over something as simple and universal as food.

3) Whopper Sacrifice: This one is great. There are a trillion annoying and useless Facebook Apps out there that I will never ever use. But if I actually liked Burger King’s food, I would definitely use this application. Install the app on Facebook, sacrifice ten friends (be warned: the app publicizes who you sacrifice), get a free Whopper. Amazing.

So go check them out and enjoy some wasted time indulging in the glories of good brainwashing subliminal persuasion advertising.

Thanks to Tommy for the heads up on Whopper Sacrifice.
