Seven Inches of Sexualized Sandwiches

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

“Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the New BK Super Seven Incher.  Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American chees, crispy onions and the A.1.(R) Thick & Hearty Steak Sauce.”  That’s the text from the Burger King ad above.

Blow 7 inches?  It’s so subtle.  What’s next? Special sauce on her cheek?  Contests at the local Burger King to see who can fit the sandwich down her throat?

For the gay press, is there a different version where a man opens wide?

For the manly man audience, will the ads feature conversations like, “Mine’s seven inches.  How long is yours?”

    It’s the lifeless look on the face that really creeps me out. I am definitely not including BK on my list of lunch choices in future — who needs that image when they’re trying to enjoy food?
