Have you seen it? Am I the last person on the planet to learn of this new low in hucksterism sullying the public airwaves?
The ad shows videos--Candid Camera-style--wherein Burger King customers have been slipped a competitor's burger instead of the Whopper they ordered. I don't think these greaseballs are acting. I think they are actual, paying diners caught in the act of becoming homicidally irate over the possibility of being denied their Whopper.
Have we really sunk this low?
What am I saying....Of course we've sunk this low.
Keep in mind, we are talking about a "sandwich" that delivers 600 industrially processed calories and 36 grams of artery-choking fat, nearly half the recommended daily dose. But some of these clowns may have actually ordered the Triple Whopper, which packs a liver-splitting 1,130 calories and 74 grams of fat.
It is indeed scary to see Americans working themselves into a slobbering, vein-popping frazzle when denied some of the most harmful, nutritionally bankrupt food on the planet. Even scarier: Burger King apparently is convinced that this approach will sell more Whoppers.
(Note to self: This is the same Burger King that refused to pay a 1-cent-per-pound raise to the cash-strapped workers who pick the Florida tomatoes that garnish those very same Whoppers.)
