Is anybody else at all bothered by that stupid Burger King/Spongebob/Baby Got Back commercial? Believe you me, I am far from a prude, but, personally, I think that commercial is just all kinds of wrong! There’s a bunch of girls shaking their tushes in tight shorts with the Burger King guy spinning tunes. Very odd. Here is the ad, in case you haven’t been blindsided by it yet:
Burger King is saying they’re targeting adult audiences because this kids BK Value Meal can only be obtained with the purchase of an adult BK Value Meal. They claim to only be running the ad during adult programming shows. Now, I don’t know about you, but, personally, I DESPISE Spongebob. Everything about him bugs the living crap out of me — his voice, his friends, his extremely small pants. My kids, however, LOVE him. If that commercial comes on in my home at any given time, I guarantee you that it’s not gonna be my adult attention that it grabs. My kids, though, will be completely mesmerized by a commercial that, really, makes absolutely no sense whatsoever! So, if I put two and two together, am I to assume, that if my kids eat the Value Meal, that, they, too, will have square butts? I mean, seriously, as a woman living in a self-image obsessed world, why would I want to stuff my kids’ faces with fat-laden burgers when I’ve just seen a parade of very deformed booties shaking all over the screen? I just don’t get it! Granted, if it was part of a Saturday Night Live skit, I might find it a wee bit funny, but when it gives my kids even more reasons to talk about butts, it kinda loses its humor on me. We have enough gutter talk as it is around here, and you can bet your square ass that we don’t need any more!
