Burger King commercial
Burger King's cartoon commercial is making fun of Jessica Simpson's weight. Really? That purveyor of tasty food, that is oh so good for you, couldn't possibly have anything to do with the "fattening of America," chain food experience feels free of their own sins to start pummeling someone that has already been beat to death. BK, who do you think you are?
Well, thanks to the "all bets are off" reality of reality TV I think they are in a fine position to lampoon anyone they want to (if you've been a star on "true TV" you're sunk.)
I feel bad for Jessica Simpson. By all accounts she was just a nice young lady, with a good voice and a gorgeous image who allowed herself to be put through the scary Hollywood spin cycle - made all the scarier because the foundation of her celebrity was "reality."
I'm not sure how she feels about this new iteration of her famous self. Not sure if she had anything to do with it. What I do know is that advertising people know how to shake it up when they want to, and they obviously have done it here. So, if you think being famous is what you want, and today it's possible for EVERYONE to be famous, just remember, everything you do will be up for grabs and that just might not be quite as fun as you think.
