OK... So all the usual suspects are putting up the Burger King "Whopper Freakout" video on their site. Which I have to admit is very funny. And yes, it's all over YouTube and getting replays and links on every fucking AdBlog in the universe. Even though it's hosted on Fallon Planning, I have to assume it's from my second favorite agency to kick the shit out of, CP+B. 'Cos it does have the "King" in it... Anyway, It's a neat idea and well executed. Unfortunately, it starts off with the same old, same old testimonial shit BDA's are particularly fond of... However, you know I couldn't refrain myself from throwing in a couple of my usual acidic comments... Why the fuck is everyone describing it as an "Ad Campaign?" This is a video that runs for seven minutes and thirty eight seconds... Which means it's obviously YouTube Viral Shit. But, what I really want to know is... Are these off-the-street people or highly paid fucking actors... C'mon guys, I cannot believe some of these fucking clowns would uber-freak out this much because they couldn't get their Whopper. And the weird mid-twenties guy with the grunge outfit who says he's been eating a Whopper a day since he was ten years old needs to explore the culinary delights of a fucking grocery store before he has that massive fucking heart attack in the next couple of years. Is it just me, am I the only one that harbors doubts anyone could have this much love for a fucking greasy hamburger?
Now that's what I call a fucking "Whopper!"
