BK’s Latest Sandwich Will ‘Blow Your Mind Away’

What are they thinking? Burger King has had some pretty creepy advertising campaigns in the past but what in the world is going on with the print ad below which promotes their new 7 inch sandwich?

The advertisement leaves little to the imagination. Advertising experts are saying that the ad should be discontinued due to “distasteful” and unappetizing references to oral sex.

The print ad for the “BK Super Seven Incher” — a limited time promotion in Singapore, shows the “mind-blowing” sandwich near the open mouth of a wide-eyed, red-lipsticked woman accompanied by the suggestive tagline: “It’ll blow your mind away.”

The ad even goes on to say, “Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled.”

Mark Duffy, a blogger and an advertising copyrighter at a major New York City firm, said the advertisement is among the “worst” he’s ever seen in more than 17 years of industry experience.

“I’ve seen a lot of sexual innuendo ads and this is about the worst, especially for something as mainstream as Burger King,” Duffy told FOXNews.com. “I was a little repulsed by it. It’s really misogynistic to women and it’s also unappetizing.”

What do you think? Has Burger King gone too far?

Chasing Thief Who Stole Your Pot Not Good Reason To Speed

Speeders come up with all sorts of reasons why they are speeding when caught by police – wife having a baby, late for a meeting, trying to get to church. One reason you might want to keep to yourself however is the reason Ryan Neaus, 21, Hazleton gave the officer who pulled him over for speeding – he was chasing the person who just robbed him of his Apple iPhone and three bags of marijuana.

Rise of the Idiots

I came across 37 seconds of video which is actually a scene from the Nathan Barley series in which Dan Ashcroft gives a commentary on the rise of the idiot classes. Many people think this rant is the exposition of co-creator Chris Morris’s own feelings on popular culture.

And while the video may be staged, we are not far off from this in “real” culture. I give you the “Rise of the Idiots” or as we like to call them here – Dipnoids.
