What is your opinion?

I am curious to know what you think of the new Burger King commercial! It's the one for the SpongeBob kids meal! Personally, I think it is absolutely inappropriate way to advertise a kids meal even though Burger King says the commercial is geared towards parents and adults! I would love to know what others think especially other parents!

Besides being stupid-it's offensive all together!

Guess that was blunt-sorry:)

Autumn, Don't apologize at all! I agree with you! Apparently at the very end it says "buy an adult meal and get a kids meal for 99 cents". the only problem is you can't understand what they are saying!

Hey Monica,

I guess I haven't seen the commercial?? I'll watch for it though..I've seen so many commercials lately that just blow my mind much less the message it sends to a child. And now a lot of these fast food places are doing internet campaigns that are really over the edge..it looks like they are selling sex and not food.

Steph, The video for the commercial is on youtube if you want to see it. There is a red bull commercial that's even worse.

I agree with you, that commercial is the worst, and the one they had befor it, with the car crashing into the car in front of it at the drive thru. It's just plain un-necessary.

I would like to say that that BK commercial is absolutely offensive to women in general, not to say that the ones performing in it are also "women." Even shows up on the Dr. Phil show and I don't know if he is aware that those commercials are played during his airtime.

Betty, It has started showing up all of the time! Burger King says it's geared towards adults and yet last night my 4 year old came in the front room after bed time and it came on came on and as I turned it off she said not to turn off the show and I told her it was just a commercial and she said yeah, but it's a kids commercial! Out of the mouths of babes! Then she asked me why they had square bottoms!!!

I really dislike this whole new marketing campaign that Burger King has. It's absolutely horrible and stupid.
The Red Bull one is even worse. I really can hardly stand tv anymore.
