Burger King / lewd commercial

1 United States Review updated:

The Burger King Ballet was a fantastic idea until they came to the end, when a ballerina reaches into a mans pockets and makes obvious sexual motions while removing a dollar bill from his pocket. it was truly disgusting and completely offended me.

i don't think i COULD eat at Burger King after watching that.

    I totally agree that it was offensive. Burger King is pushing it to the limits. They really should get some new employees that can think of something that would put a more positive taste in the mouths of their viewers.

    Good God! Lighten up. It was brilliant. It got you tight reared, right wing conservatives talking about it. That's the whole purpose of adds. Your pompous attitudes are more humorous than the add.

    I recently watched a commercial from Burger King showing the dad trying to talk to the Jr. Whopper about sex. The commercial is crude, disrespectful and totally inappropriate for television. What is needed here is a boycot. Burger King, should allow complaints over the internet like everyone else, and they should take responsibility for their lack of judgment.

    The commercial that BK has were there are some women trying to run him down should be removed. I think it is hostil and sending out the wrong message. It is a wonderful sandwhich let be at that but for some women to try to run him down because he did it better than them is totally wrong!!! So if someone does something better that the next person then it is ok to go after them to bring them down? It is crazy and should be removed.

    Thank you,

    How horrible. You cannot simply ban a commercial because of lewd content. Without sex the human population would cease.

    Are you puritan?

    Burger King - Bad commercial

    I want the Burger King Commercial I saw last night to be remove because of the physical violence it promotes. A woman standing over a man hits him several times. The commercial was offensive and sends a message that physical violence is "ok" in society. We have a big enough problem battling the ignorance of physical violence but to mainstream this is appalling. I think you need a lot more creativity in your commercials and to make more thoughtful decisions in how you will be received by the public because believe me I'm sure I'm not the only one that plans on avoiding spending my time or money at Burger King because of the poor decisions they have made with commercials. I hope this changes soon.

    I am in total agreement. In fact I was just on their web site trying to find an email address to express my concern and to let them know how irresponsible this was to produce a commerical of this caliber.

    I strongly agree and was doing the exact same thing as MLB was doing. Unfortunalty all they have is phone numbers. Best I could find is their Investor email which warns it's for investment emails only but maybe if enough people filled that box up with complaints they would think it's not a good investment?

    Here's the address: investor@whopper.com

    Speaking of violence, Burger King "food" gives me violent stomach pain.

    Couldn't agree more. No excuse for the total lack of judgement by their marketing department. Whoever approved the commercial should be discharged. Terrible image to associate with their products. Also wonder why women's organizations aren't making some kind of comment; slap-happy woman in the advert is a caricature & paints an extremely poor example of a human being. If it had been a man striking the woman, I believe the NOW would have been picketing BK HQ by now.

    I agree totally. The reason being is that I have seen so many commercials that my children have watched, fully indicating that physical violence is acceptable. It is easy enough to control what my children are watching, but making sure they don't see certain commercials is near impossible. I think it is ridiculous that the only way to protect them from seeing terrible manners (to put it lightly), is to stop them from watching television all together. This is completely unfair to them and to their parents. Television has become unacceptable for children and it is sad that part of the reason for this is a restaurant with advertising directed at children.. and vegetable juice, if you know what I mean. I shouldn't have to explain to my young children why BK is being "bad".

    In my opinion the commercial was funny. It was the first time I actually laughed out loud to a commercial in a long time. If you think you can protect your children from violent images and situations in America you are kidding yourself...

    Anyway the commercial has been changed and is now slap free.

    Score one for complaining conservatives

    The only people I see complaining are parents of young children. Instead of pointing fingers, maybe try looking in the mirror first. What goes on in your children's minds starts with you. Not the TV, not the radio, but you. If this commercial promotes violence, then Popeye the Sailor Man promotes smoking tobacco out of a pipe. And for some reason, people thought Spongebob Squarepants promoted homosexuality.

    Turn off the TV or change the channel if you don't like the things that are on it. There are 500 other channels available nowadays. Choose one.

    I saw the "square butts" comercial tonight, which is promoting their Bob SquarePants deal for children.
    Have they lost touch with reality?
    I hope that anyone who loves children and the future of this country will send a strong message to those idiots and stop going to Burger King while telling everyone they know to do the same.

    We usually eat at BK at least once a week with our Grandchildren. I saw your new square pants commercial. Goodbye to BK and hello McDonalds or Wendys.
    The commercial was totally offensive. When you have to answer a question like, "Mawmaw, what's a bootie" from your young grandchild...shame on you. You are helping to destroy this countries younger childrens' youth.

    Grab your crotch a few more times and then remove your commercial. At least someone should enjoy it, have at it.

    I personally am quite appauld by your square butts comercial. I thought Burger King is trying to appeal to children of all ages. Where a teenager or adult might think this is an appropriate comercial, it is not geared at all for little ones. They like Spongebob and The King but the sexual inuendos could have been left out. I will have to give some thought to taking my grandchildren into Burger King from now on .Penny in Lingle
