    Red face Burger King SpongeBob Square Butts ad – what the heck are they promoting?

    Burger King SpongeBob Square Butts Ad What the Heck are they Promoting?


    see video below



    [Best Syndication News] Burger King has made a whopper of a bad commercial, no really, it's unbelievably bad. Who would hire a marketing director for this advertisement as Burger King tried humor with the 'Big Butts' song combined with SpongeBob Squarepants? The ad ends with a 99 cent kids meal with a toy.

    The Campaign For A Commercial-Free Childhood is questioning the ethics of Burger Kings commercial targeting a sexualized commercial that has a popular children's Nickeolodeon's cartoon character, Spongebob Squarepants.

    While Campaign For A Commercial-Free Childhood has sent complaints to Burger King. The burger franchise responded back saying that it was targeting adults and was not being aired during children's programming.

    The commercials were being aired at 6 P.M. On Monday Nights Mens NCAA Championship. I guess that could work, but you really have to wonder if you eat these burgers is your but going to end up looking that way???

    I somehow think it would not be a good marketing campaign as most Mom's out there don't want a big butt, let along a square butt. Children that have seen this may not get the sexualized twist and literally believe that there butts will look like this if they eat a Burger King burger.

    It is just to unbelievable that Burger King would even make a commercial like this. (See the video below of the controversial Burger Kind Ad.)

    From the first time I saw it, I thought it was weird and inappropriate for a kids' meal commercial.

    More like a burger will give you a booty.

    But probably not the kind you want.

    More disappointed that Sir-Mix-A-Lot sold out.

    Kids today don't even know who that is, much less give two shits or a thought about anything sexual to do with that song. If anything, they merely recognize the song riff (i.e. notes) if they've been decently exposed to enough popular media.

    That 'Burger King" mascot thing needs to be destroyed. It is either a molester, a serial killer, or both. I creeps me the hell out and I want to physically assault it. Fortunately I do not watch tv except for at work(ha!) and yet I have seen this commercial many times. Absolutely WTF were they on?

    That commercial is hilarious! Every time I watch it I crack up laughing. Who would have associated Sponge Bob with butts??

    I guess they are promoting a kids meal but probably lots of grown ups will pick up that meal for the toy. Sponge Bob has a weird adult following.

    BTW, I've never seen a Sponge Bob show but isn't the humor supposed to be a little sarcastic/adult oriented? If so, then the commercial makes even more sense but this is the first time I've ever been interested in Sponge Bob.

    Burger King commercials have been getting strange since they gave the King the wax makeover.. he looks like a scary clown.

    Soogar, the first three seasons mixed in adult/smart humor in with the kiddy humor. Now the newer seasons are mostly for really little kids, they dumbed it down a LOT.
