    Shame on You: Burger King

    This pathetic commercial was shown nationwide last summer, advertising Burger King’s Texas Double Whopper.

    We’re talking about one burger that contains:

    1,050 calories
    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!

      I realize this is an old post (and an old commercial), but I have to comment on this.
      This is a very funny commercial. It may infuriate “food police” types such as yourself, but I really don’t care what you think. If you eat too much of anything, it is bad for you. If you drink too much water over a short period, it can kill you. I think you should post a blog condemning the evils of H2O.
      In the past year, I have had two of these. On both occasions I didn’t have time for lunch, so it was my only meal that day. I had fries and a coke, too – It’s amazing that I’m still alive to write this!
      I am so glad that Burger King creates products (and commercials) that are geared toward its customers instead of worrying about what you think.
      You should probably go eat a lettuce sandwich. Wait – you better make it a wrap instead.
