WARNING: The new Burger King advert has seriously melted my sense of humour.

4 Apr

burger king burgerI really risk sounding like an old hippy here but I am massively wound up by the latest Burger King ad. I wonder if that was their aim; to wind up greenies? Either way, it is NOT funny that the ice caps are melting and what a horrendous stroke of irony that they are selling a BEEF burger, when cattle farming is one of the most contributing factors to climate change. See what you think, and please comment – I’m concerned that I’ve missed the point or over-reacted because surely BK can’t have that little respect for the future of our planet?

    It seems to me as if they are actually raising awareness about global warming.

    @juhi @EggMag I agreed that this BK ad is seriously off the mark – ha ha our burgers are helping melt the glaciers :-S http://bit.ly/dUHZpz #green

    @tcfuk @EggMag interesting, they would appear to be making light of it, but it would be nice to know if and how they are contributing to help G.W.

      @RobStreeten @EggMag BK ad’s in pretty poor taste and tragically unfunny. may function to highlight issue via backlash
