They really need to stop this "embedding disabled by request" crap. It's senseless as you can just provide a link and people can highlight and paste to their browser anyway.

I dunno. "Juniot" sounds like a perfect portmanteau of "Junior" and "Idiot" which actually fits this video well.

God, that was awful, but I have to admit that the Whopper Jr. is one of the best burgers out there, especially for the price.

Just saw this for the first time and signed on because of it.

WHAT IS UP with the BLUE MUPPET?!! Confused It looks like he OD'd on colloidal silver treatments.

What the hell was the price on it before? That burger doesn't even have cheese. I don't get why there's puppets and all sorts of random crap celebrating a hamburger. At least at McDonald's I get cheese with my dollar burger.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

Everything is going up price wise. Of course there is still "no significant inflation". I would rather spend my $1.29 on a Jumbo Jack. I really like the bun.

Really dumb commercial, and it does nothing to bring me any closer to liking that yucky burger. But again, my favorite burger of its kind is the "Big Carl" (Big Mac, Double Whopper, Wendy' Double Stack and Bonus Jack competition), but I detest the commercials.

The fat, pudgy, balding stereotypical actor playing the manager apparently doesn't know what's going on. I'm like: "Don't you know, dope? You're the manager!" What an asshole.

In the industry, minimum wage employees are offered a "manager" position with a 50% increase in wages. They soon find out that they are not being paid wages. They are now being paid salary and are expected to work 80 hours per week. Can you blame them for not giving a s*it?

Salary employment rarely works to the advantage of the worker. I don't think I'd ever take a salary job unless I knew I was somehow going to get more money for less work.

When my cousin got his first job after college, he was all excited about the idea of the guaranteed salary.  That is, until it turns out he was stuck working 70 hours a week LOL  He said it pretty much came down to him working for like 10-12 bucks an hour, if that.

That's hilarious. I actually don't like cheese on burgers but get your point.

These ads/billboards worked on us, and we went to BK yesterday for the first time in years. The burgers were tiny, mostly bread. They tasted okay but not like I remember. BK also changed their chicken fingers to an odd approximation of McNuggets. No idea why.

I think they've changed their nuggets 3x in the past 5 years. I liked the original thumb looking nuggets from years past. Then they took away chicken fries which I enjoyed and made some sort of new nugget, and now these Mcnugget clones. I like Mcnuggets so I do like these, but if I want Mcnuggets I'll just go to McDonalds....it makes no sense.

I've seen that blue muppet in another BK ad - I certainly hope BK isn't trying to replace the King with him - yeah, that'd go over well!

Yes, the thumbs were the best, especially with ranch! They kept the same recipe but made them star-shaped for a while, which I normally would love but it just didn't work. I guess we shouldn't get too comfortable with BK McNuggets because they're obviously not going to last more than a few years.

You've won, Burger King. I never thought the day would happen, but you've officially gotten WORSE at making commercials than McDonald's. Here's your trophy, and please don't read this the wrong way - it's a trophy of SHAME.

It's funny, because they can't just sell us a burger anymore. You know, a patty, a bun, some lettuce, tomato, onion, some mustard and\or mayo. They have to pay some people millions to sit around a table, reviewing the latest "data", to come up with a double stuffed, turkey, cheddar, chipotle, angus, double stack,  THING that doesnt even resemble a burger anymore. Then they throw on some onion rings or some A-1 sauce or a pancake and tell us it's a steal at 6 bucks, along with a 2 dollar soda and 2 dollar order of onion rings, (even though they're already on your "burger"). But I guess they also had to pay another round table of "experts" to come up with these commercials we all seem to love so much. When all we really want is freakin BURGER that isnt tiny and WEIRD and ends up costing us 10 bucks. What an assinine, idiot, ripoff, joke. Thanks for nothing.
