BK Goes Crude With 7-Inch Burger Ad

Yes, they really want to 'fill your desire for something long, juicy...'

(Newser) – Burger King’s “edgy” ads have reached a new low, writes Cajun Boy for Gawker. The ad for its 7-inch-long burger screams fellatio—from the “piping hot beef laden with creamy mayo” to the “open mouth of a wide-eyed blond.” The slogan—“It’ll blow your mind away”—is as subtle as a sledge hammer, and the fine print is filled with heavy breathing. "Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER."

Copyranter, who tipped Gawker to the ad, calls it "most overtly blow-jobby ad I've ever seen," and he keeps track of these things, offering three other runners-up to the top honor (this apart from the Quiznos ad with the oven urging a dreamy-looking guy to "make a toasty Torpedo" and "Put it in me, Scott.") “The only thing this ad is missing, adds Cajun Boy, "is the disclaimer that you'll actually get fewer blow-jobs if you eat these sandwiches.”
