No One Wants a Square Butt!

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!

    As long as I don’t have to go buy the food and get the prize, they can play whatever fool commercial they want.

    My kids love Spongebob–but thankfully they have learned that fast food toys are always cheap crap.

    You don’t want a square butt? *wink*

      “Jasmine” — totally agree about the cheapness of the toys — I’ve got broken pieces all over the floor of the back seat of my car! Crap is right!

    Yes I’ve seen it before. I too was surprised to see the square butt commercial on tv — and with sponge Bob in it. I didn’t think it was appropriate to mix a character children love with dancing “butts.” But then again, sometimes I’m surprised about things on sponge Bob. Like you, if it was on Saturday Night Live I’d probably get a chuckle. I thought this was a kids commercial. I’m with you on this one, it’s just in bad taste. Not cool.

      “lifelessons4u” — Spongebob amazes me sometimes too! My kids were watching an episode one day that was about panty raids! I thought I’d misunderstood, but, unfortunately, I didn’t. What the hell? Do I really need to explain the concept of panty raids to my kindergarteners??? For the life of me, I don’t understand why the media wants our kids to grow up so freaking fast….

    I’m with you – terrible commercial, bad taste and I LOATHE Sponge Bob!

    Yeah, I’d say that commercial is in incredibly poor taste. I guess BK could also arguing they’re targeting parents because kids can’t drive themselves to BK and buy their own meal.

    And by the way, in ANY commercial that king creeps the hell out of me.
