BK’s new advertising – as bad as their food.


Ugh, BK. You ditched Crispin for THIS? I mean, it’s not offensively bad or anything, it’s just 1) boring and not creative and 2) a lie.

Look, I think we all know how powerful the franchisees are and they wanted to show the product. I can practically hear their feedback now. So I think we could cut you some slack on the fact that this concept-free spot is nothing more than the brief on film.

But I can’t forgive you for LYING to us.

No one – and I repeat, NO ONE – believes your guac is made in a lava bowl or hand salted. And we know your tomatoes aren’t hand cut on a wooden chopping board. In fact, nothing about this spot has any basis in reality for how your burgers are made. It’s one 30-second lie.

Don’t bullshit us – because all that says to us as customers is that you think we’re stupid.

    The problem is that BK assumes that McD’s product based creative is reason they are pulling further ahead. But I think it’s because McD’s strategy had been better (moving into premium coffee drinks, etc).

    Fix your product/business plan before you fix your advertising.

    there’s a touch of concept: the flaming logo, then all of these ingredients coming out of the darkness into the light. At least it has a look.
