Burger King’s Return Of The Mac N’ Cheetos

I love the ’90s. ’90s music in particular. Mark Morrison’s “Return of the Mack” was a huge hit in 1997, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. But it’s a song that I don’t remember, and only know at all from being on “Best of the ’90s” playlists and compilations. Burger King’s celebrates the return of Mac n’ Cheetos in its new commercial that puts The King and Chester Cheetah’s heads on Mark Morrison and another…uhh guy…from the original music video. It’s funny, for sure, though it would be a lot funnier if I remembered the original. But based on the fact that that top YouTube comments are “The greatest commercial I’ve ever seen…” and “Whoever made this needs several promotions and a fat raise”, Burger King’s ad, created by DAVID Miami, is a big hit.

Burger King Advertises The Croissan’wich With A French Accent

I’m not saying it’s a great commercial, but as someone who likes to say croissant (and baguette) with a faux-French accent, it did make me chuckle a bit. Croissants and baguettes are delicious, by the way. Now made with 100% butter…was Burger King using margarine or something in their croissants before? Ryan Radis plays the man, and Natalie Miston (who isn’t actually French if you were wondering) is the woman.

Napoleon Dynamite And Pedro Reunite To Eat Burger King’s Cheesy Tots

It’s been more than 12 years since cult comedy hit Napoleon Dynamite was released. Now Burger King has Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez in their new spot to celebrate the comeback of Cheesy Tots, Burger King’s version of Napoleon’s infamously favorite food. If you were a fan of the movie, you’ll probably enjoy this spot. By the way, Cheesy Tots are delicious. I might just have to pop into Burger King to get some.

Burger King’s Whopperrito Is Here: What A Time To Be Alive!

Burger King’s Whopperrito is now available nationally. While there’s nothing particularly novel about a burger wrap (McDonald’s has had a Bic Mac wrap for years), this is more along the lines of the burger/burrito hybrid with Tex-Mex spices and Queso sauce complementing the standard Whopper ingredients. I bet someone from the Burger King marketing team got major props upon naming the Whopperrito.

Burger King’s Angriest Whopper Has A Bright Red, Hot Sauce Infused Bun

The Angriest Whopper from Burger King is apparently quite spicy, and the commercial emphasizes that by showing an erupting volcano and lava. But that red bun with hot sauce baked in…I’m thinking blood red poop will result. Remember last year’s Halloween Whopper? Just brilliant, BK. Here’s a review from GrubGrade.

Wendy’s, Burger King, And McDonald’s: The Value Wars Are On!

Seems that fast food places are trying to lure in customers that have rapidly been fleeing for “fast casual” places. Last year, Wendy’s introduced a 4 for $4 deal. This week in a classic case of “anything you can do, I can do better”, Burger King added a 5 for $4, which is the same meal as Wendy’s…plus a cookie. And McDonald’s now has something called the McPick 2. Fast food value wars!

Tuesday Throwback: Dell And Stephen Curry Go To Burger King

I don’t remember this Burger King commercial from the mid ’90s, but it’s been making its rounds online since being shown on the Jumbotron during last night’s Warriors game. Lil’ Steph is adorable. Of course, Stephen indeed grew up to be a basketball player, and a much bigger star than his dad, Dell. It also reminds me of this McDonald’s spot with Cecil and Prince Fielder.
