Burger King: The Angry Whopper

BK has started this year off with a bang. I'm truly impressed with the marketing and advertising ploys from the fast food giant.

This commercial shows the brutal upbringing of an abused onion... who one day gets its revenge from mankind by making those who eat Burger King's "Angry Whopper" cry like babies from the sheer spiciness of the dish. I havn't tried one yet, but I'd like to see if they really are that hot.

Another thing I would like to mention about Burger King is their Whopper Sacrifice campaign. They will actually mail you a coupon for a free Whopper if you install their Facebook application and delete 10 of your friends. No, it's not a joke -- I tried it and got the confirmation that my free burger coupon was in the mail. I think this is a hilarious move that will make people reevaluate their virtual social network. Bravo.
