Blow Me, Hootie

Okay, c'mon. Am I supposed to take Darius Rucker seriously when he's dressed in a cowboy outfit singing about how tasty Burger King chicken sandwiches are? I mean, really. Hootie is hardly relevant any more, but this is just... sad.

Oh, and congrats to Burger King for making a commercial that is nearly the irritating equal of Old Navy spots. Now I don't have to spend any money at either business.

Oh, and I don't buy Mentos either. Stupid commercials.

I'm such a bad American.

Dude. What the hell was ANYONE invovled in this spot thinking?

More Bill Hicks:

"By the way, if anyone here is in marketing or advertising...kill yourself. Thank you. Just planting seeds, planting seeds is all I'm doing. No joke here, really. Seriously, kill yourself, you have no rationalization for what you do, you are Satan's little helpers. Kill yourself, kill yourself, kill yourself now. Now, back to the show. Seriously, I know the marketing people: 'There's gonna be a joke comin' up.' There's no fuckin' joke. Suck a tail pipe, hang yourself...borrow a pistol from an NRA buddy, do something...rid the world of your evil fuckin' presence.

From what I've heard, the Buger King ads are a travesty. However, they can't compare to the shocking lack of taste displayed in the "Herb the Nerd" ads that ran back in the late '70s.

And imagine how much more digust for the Herb ads you'd have if you had actually even been alive during their broadcasts ;)

My dad worked on the marketing team at Burger King a year after those ads aired (and went on to be President of international for the company), and he basically details how utterly gruesome the comments about said ad campaign were- and then went on to say that if he'd allowed THAT one to happen on his watch, he'd be working behind the counter of McDonalds right about now.

To make matters worse- he made me sit through the ads. Every single one. We were discussing the "don'ts" of advertising.

I thought that was Hootie. Gah.

Yes......... I was thinking much the same way...... Gawd-damn, I commend Burger King for actually creating a commercial that works in reverse-- now I never want to give them business again. Those fucking commercials will give me nitemares.

Oh, by the way, hi. Missed you ;)

Holy crap. Everytime that damn Burger King commercial comes on I have an acid flashback. Man, he thought he was pissed when people called him Hootie. Like THAT's going to help his image anyway. What the hell.

Buckaroo Hootie, from now on.

I hope he got a LOT of money for this.
