Burger King / advertising

1 United States Review updated:

Burger King's advertising has crossed the line of decentcy. It is extremely inappropriate for children. Referring to "bootie" and "nipples" and other such things is in such bad taste that I consider myself a former customer. Burger King has lost my business forever. Linda Cristea cristea@westpa.net

    I just read that Burger King was removing their commercial and I was ecstactic because the Square Butt commercial is nothing more that trash. I was totally disappointed however to find that they were removing a commercial that offended someone from another country!

    So, their Porn is going to stay as long as it isn't politically incorrect or as long as it does not offend someone from a foreign nation.


    My grandson was off of school today and we took him and friends out for the day. The high point of my day was when I told one of the friends, as we passed a Burger King, "no, we don't buy food from them." The seven-year old said "Oh, the Square Butt commercial?"

    We will gladly continue to NOT patronize any Burger King and we will continue to request that friends and family do the same.

    Burger King has lost another customer. Their use of sexuality in their latest round of commercial is totally absurd. I don't know who the head of advertising is now but they need to be FIRED. You think you are capturing attention by all these controverial advertising - I'm sure with the thinking that controversial advertising is better than none. You are wrong. Between "i like square butts" and the latest nipple twisting "kingons" you've done nothing but show you lack of morals and your desperate attempts to compete with other fast food restaurants. Normally I am fairly quiet when it comes to others choices - but you have gone over the line. Trust me when I say I will be doing everything within my power to have your restaurants boycotted in the Charlottesville area.

    Can't say I like the commercial, but kids don't see it as sexual. The ones I have polled (without putting thoughts into their heads) just think it's funny. It only seems to be adults who apply a sexual connotation to the commercial.

    I think it's a dumb commercial, but I don't apply anything sexual to it either. We don't eat at burger king, probably won't either, but not because of commercials.

    If you really dislike it you should also make a complaint at the Burger King official website, where I think they've received a lot of mail about this.
