Burger King apparently screens all its ingredients very thoroughly, as can be seen by this placemat ad.

Wow - interesting ad campaign, indeed!! There's something frightening about breasts on pickles and peppers. Won't even get into the "cavity search" aspects.

Haha, that is an interesting campaign indeed! That pickle does indeed have a striking resemblance to the guy from the Village People I think this increases my preference for BK over mackers

Hee hee! Saw those awhile back on Ads of the World. Burger King sure has some odd ads of late--CP&B brought the King to life for those Super Bowl commercials a few years back. Something disturbing about seeing the king in full plastic regalia...

Didn't know you were a Village People kinda guy, Sam. Learn something new every day!!

I agree!! Those ads are really rather scary!! Ronald McDonald is scary enough but the plasticized king reinforces why I don't go there. Besides, their french fries aren't as good - personal opinion - not up for debate.

Hehe, that's hilarious. Doesn't the whopper have onions on it though? And why does the topless chilli get through so easily?
