We’re talking about one burger that contains:
106% of one’s daily recommended fat intake
130% of the daily saturated fat limit
80% of the maximum daily sodium amount
And… 2.5 grams of trans fat (ideally, we should be getting zero)
So, how do you advertise a triple bypass in between two buns? Why, resort to many men’s ultimate fear — that of being compared to, gasp, a woman!
And thus the creation of Burger King’s “Manthem”, in which men brag about their unhealthy eating habits and practically equate the Texas Double Whopper to a shot of testosterone.
Below, the cringe-worthy lyrics:
“I am man, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I’m way too hungry to settle for chick food
‘Cause my stomach’s startin’ to growl
And I’m goin’ on the prowl
For a Texas double-whopper, man that’s good
Oh, yes, I’m a guy, I’ll admit I’ve been fed quiche
Wave tofu bye bye, now it’s the whopper beef I reach
I will eat this meat until my innie turns into an outtie
I am starved, I am incorrigible
And I need to scoff a big burger beef bacon jalopeno good thing down
I am hungry
I am incorrigible
I am mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn“
PS: Eating like “a man, man” and stuffing yourself silly with saturated fat, trans fats, and sodium (as this commercial dares male viewers to do) is a surefire way to become obese and increase your risk of developing prostate, colon, and rectal cancer. Enjoy!
