Just hours after launching, Burger King’s new smart home ad campaign is already crashing like the goddamn Hindenburg. On Wednesday, the company released a weirdly intrusive 15-second spot designed to intentionally trigger viewers’ Google Home devices. In theory, the devices would then read back a list of the Whopper’s…
If you find yourself eating at fast food restaurants every day, you’re not doing your body any favors. The recommended caloric intake for the average adult is around 2,000 calories, while the average fast food combo often delivers more than that—in a single meal.
Back in the mid-2000s, Burger King had a really unnerving ad campaign where a man in a plastic Burger King mask breaks into people's houses and watches them sleep. Over in the New Inquiry, Adam Kotsko uses the skin-crawling mascot, the King, as a jumping-off point to discuss the history of creepiness.
To no one's surprise, Burger King's all black burger looks like a disgusting turd in real life. Actually, it might be even worse than some turds. It looks like it tastes like ash. It looks like it's made from burnt cardboard. It looks like it'll bring death to anyone who dare eats it.
Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft reports on the new all black burger at Burger King Japan, a sandwich with black buns, black sauce, and black cheese darker than a black hole (seriously, the cheese is extremely black.) It looks kind of gross—but I really want to try it. How is this black cheese so dark, you ask?
It was just going to be another boring President's Day on the Internet, when along came a spastic, hilarious hacker with a taste for McDonald's, Gucci Mane, and caps lock. Is a criminal mastermind behind the @BurgerKing (and likely @Jeep) takeover? Nope—just a guy who plays shows in Rhode Island who left an…
Most Twitter hackers go after heads of states or companies to stir up some humiliation. But today's target is Burger King, which has been transformed into a combination of McDonald's and amphetamine addict. Enjoy it while it lasts.
You don't have to be a doctor to know that eating hundreds of strips of bacon at a time can't possibly be good for your health. A reporter for Japan's Rocket News 24 obviously didn't get that memo. Because he ordered a burger from Burger King with 1,050 slices on top.
Fast food is loaded with salt. This should come at no surprise. What is surprising, however, is that the same menu items often have different salt levels depending on where they're served.
Chef Jamie Oliver calls it pink slime. We feel it's more like pink goop. Either way, the ammonium hydroxide soaked pink crap beef is vomit inducing. Thankfully, you won't have to eat it anymore. Kind of. McDonald's has finally caved to the pressure and will ditch the use of the pink goop beef in its burgers.
Remember the joy you felt climbing through the tunnels at your McDonald's PlayPlace? Yeah, me too. And I don't particularly remember getting sick. But according to Erin Carr-Jordan's independent findings, we were all playing wrist-deep in pretty gnarly bacteria. Fun!
And here I thought Burger King was the classy fast food establishment! Oh wait that's Wendy's. Anywho, two California Burger King employees were fired for printing "FUCK YOU" on a customer's receipt. Watch local reporters take the matter very seriously.
I haven't been to Burger King in a long while, but if the States implemented the "musical shower" heads that the Japanese experience in their "upscale" Burger Kings, I could be enticed back into the glutinous fold one last time.
Touchscreen menus. Corrugated metal. Red chandeliers. Brick. Burger King will add these elements to 12,000 locations in renovations costing franchisees between $300,000 and $600,000 apiece.
The Whopper Sacrifice, a new Facebook application from Burger King, pushes the limits to see how much a Whopper is worth. It's simple: Defriend 10 friends on Facebook and you get a free Whopper.
