I am sure the food stinks but damn if the new ad for it ain't fantastic. Anyone catch it, it starts with a bunch of people marching and singing their way to a BK, folks jumping out of windows to join them, I felt like joining up with them...then I remembered , BK!

Client of mine owns 17 Burger Kings --- actually I think he sold off a few and is slowing down at 78 years of age.  Big sissy !!!!!  Anyhow, the point of all this BANTER is------- he loves the commercial also.

I'd very much like to own 17 BK's, I just would never eat the food!

He doesn't eat there, that's for sure, that's why they needed a fancy house, with a great kitchen and 7 bathrooms.  A real success story, he started behind the counter while in High School.

It's a matter of going north or south.
 
Here in St Pete on HGW 19 the BK is directly opposite MacD
so if you are heading north it is a lot easier to go into BK, but
heading south----------

Can you get a Whopper for breakfast yet? If not I'm back at the grill tomorrow morning fixing the better half of a bacon and egg burger.
 
That coffee didn't look to bad. (was that her name?)

I know that last fall BK was selling burgers at breakfast here in southern WI but that was the last time I've been to one (I was hungry and it was the only food between us and our destination).  Since then I believe I've seen some ads promoting the idea but it's been awhile.

That commercial was stolen from a Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland movie called "Strike Up The Band" ---- and every other movie those two great stars ever made. 
 
Dewey, Cheatum & Howe are starting a class action law suit against BK-----

There's something so damn cheerful about it, I actually look forward to watching it.

It reminded me of another commercial for Dr. Pepper back in the 80's (Be a Pepper, drink Dr.Pepper) Very cheerful!!!

I swear that while I was reading this message, a new BK breakfast ad came on TV. I'm glad; the original, as far as I'm concerned, follows BK's habit of creeping me out in commercials (the Burger King mask, the one with the girl sitting on the food, etc.)
