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.
What do you do when the guy next door has been pissing you off? Settle it like gentlemen over coffee? Arm wrestling competition? Just turn the other cheek? How about throwing an orgy at his house without asking? Yes.
Ugh, you know, I love Facebook, but sometimes it's really frustrating how the targeted ads aren't relevant enough to me and my consumer lifestyle. Like, yeah, I enjoy pizza and videogames, but couldn't it be more precise and creepy? Yes.
