Is Burger King’s Seven Inches Too Much?

June 25, 2009

(That’s what she said)

I’ve worked in advertising for about 4 years now. Had my hands in both consumer and pharma type ads. I’ve never had an ad this racy come across my desk before. Now granted I’m not working on this Burger King campaign, I’m just saying this is really pushing the envelope in regards to decency standards. I already have my own Burger King boycott going that’s been in effect for about 4 years now since their chicken fries commercial completely insulted me as a Blackman. In the commercial a super hero type of group (consisting of only black folk) are running around sliding over car hoods for chicken fries.

Now we have their new ad. I thought it was funny but also a little offensive. Maybe I’m a prude, but the ad is a lil much for me. What do you think?
