The Burger King Character is Out … Add One More the the Obama Unemployment List
MAYBE ITS NOT GOOD TO BE KING …
The creepy Burger King character is the latest victim of the difficult economic times. The Burger King has been kicked to the curb and has lost his crown. Honestly, I never understood the ‘Burger King” character as I thought it was so damn creepy and scary for children that they would run screaming to McDonald’s telling mommy to step on the gas and head for the Golden Arches.
The Burger King is now Unemployed
In the first of many steps to reinvent itself over the next year, the struggling fast-feeder Friday will announce that it’s dethroning the creepy King character — and other wacky, teen-targeting stuff — and refocusing on a customer it had all but forgotten: Mom.
In a new ad campaign set to air this weekend, Burger King will nationally roll out the California Whopper on Monday, made with what’s arguably the gastronomic trend of 2011: guacamole. In a serious image twist, the entire commercial shows only the sights and sounds of the fresh ingredients being washed, sliced and diced. There are no words, just pulsating music.
I don’t think the answer is to get rid of the King, just the look of the one you presently have. Maybe they can hire some one who may be in need of a job in 2012? Heck, there is no time like the present, hire him now so maybe he can leave office sooner and do a favor for America.
Just yesterday, the new jobless claims increased to 408,000 … add the Burger King to that list next week. Of course there is one more King we would like to add to the unemployment rolls in 2012.
