Burger King Commericals - Where Washed Up Rappers Go To Retire

This has to be the creepiest mascot for a business. The king creeps me out completely.

A friend emailed this to me and it bothers me on many levels. First I'm with you Proffessor T, the King is creepy as hell. When they introduced him in the beginning, I thought why? Second this commerical is about Spongebob (for kids) but they are using the rapper who sang about "Juicy Doubles". It supposed to be cute right cuz their butts are square? Ummm no.

The King creeps me out too..especially the commercial about the BK Breakfast and the woman wakes up and looks over and he's in here bed...LOL

Haha, I completely agree...the king is scarier than heck, if I met him on the street, I'd run screaming!

Forget about the creepy mascot. The entire commercial is demeaning and just inappropriate. Although my kids don't eat Burger King, I wrote the corporate office about this foolishness. It's deplorable.

Ack! I couldn't agree more! This is awful. And apparently there are some parent groups complaining. Who thought that this was a good idea?!?

I agree, Professor Tracey! I think Sir-Mix-A lot should've drawn the line at remixing for a spongebob commercial. It just didn't sound right.

hey prof!
hope you are doing well!

uknow, when i first saw this commercial i had the tv on mute--so i missed what they were saying--caught it again later in the day--and my mouth fell open!
i think it is a strike against Women in the boldest form!
i never liked that rap-'song' when it first came out.
it has no place in a video with children at all!
needless to say i emailed many thoughts to the bk people voicing my dismay about their choice to make , and show this commercial and thinking it was ok.
i have no iissue with their food products--our girls eat there and when i na rush i do also.
but this has made me think twice about spending our money there.
and yes-it is very 'creepy'! And yes, it seems that a lot of no talent rappers are turning to tv commercials for a check...have you seen the one about 'pullups' for potty training children?
very poor taste indeed!

one other thing--i do like spongebob!
they crack me up!
though pinky and the brain would make me double over in laughter!
