Burger King Under Fire...Again

Burger King needs to fire their ad agency. After a controversial ad that sparked criticism with the Mexican government, Burger King is again under fire with an ad that features Spongebob Squarepants to the tune of Sir Mix-a-Lot's "I Like Big Butts."

If the creepy plastic king dancing with scantily-clad girls doesn't disgust you, I don't know what will. Both BK and Nickelodeon -- who partnered in making the ad -- say the commercial is targeted for adults. Riiiiiiight... It features a cartoon character and speaks of the kids' meals. Not buying it.

Plus, if they're trying to target adults, they lost me. This commercial is not just completely inappropriate, but it's just terrible.

"Inappropriate" doesn't even describe this media mess. Disgusting!
