    You know what i'm talking about? Those remarkably creepy Burger King commercials with that 'king' staring ominously at people! [​IMG]

    This thing makes even the blank stare of Darth Vader's fearsome visage seem warm and comforting by comparison!

    I swear I feel the presance of Satan everytime I see one of those ad's. It makes me want to say "alright, i'll eat at your freaking restaraunt, just get that thing out of my face!"

    Saw the newest one today ..they were advertising the 20,000 calorie breakfast sandwich...A dude wakes up and opens his window shade and there's the Creepy King staring at him with a sandwich.

    Scary stuff!

    Hello egg, hello meat, hello cheese, hi onion. [​IMG]

    These commercials are great. Way better than the "We love the subs" campaign.

    Let me just say that I will eat BK's food over McD's any day of the week and twice on Sunday, but that king thing is just terrifying, I half expect it to whip out a knife and start stabbing people. He'd be right at home in a slasher film right alongside Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy and Ghostface from the 'Scream' films!

    Doesn't he bear a striking resemblance to a much older, even more sinister and evil Chucky?

    Is he the Burger King or is he really the rabbit from Donnie Darko?

    I didn't that was a Burger King ad?!? Everytime I see that ad a soft voice in my head start whispering to me...kill...kill...kill.

    Sooner or later I guess I have to giveinto it.

    If I had some weirdo in a plastic crown staring at me through the window, the last thing I'd do is open the window and eat the sandwich he offered me. That's just dumb. Maybe the fries, but who knows what he's done to the sandwich. And if he really cared about me, he'd have brought me a soda to boot.

    I'm still trying to figure out what "official" stamped this character as "pure evil" (as opposed to a subjective feeling of creepiness).

    I would LOVE to se BK do a tie-in with a slasher flick! Imagine all the possibilities! [​IMG]

    Maybe that's why John Williamson is so frightened, with that part in the commercial where the Burger King says, "Do you not know death when you see it, old man? This is my hour!" [​IMG]
