    Posted: 01 Dec 2008 at 1:00am

I still can't believe I really saw this, but it was on near end of Broncos/Jets game.

This ad details a new taste test between the Whopper and the Big Mac, using people in remote corners of the earth (Thailand, Romania, Greenland) who have supposedly never eaten a hamburger (or at least not a Whopper or Big Mac).
 
Because these good folks have never had a burger, or seen an ad for one, they're referred to as WHOPPER VIRGINS. Shocked
 
Even better, it's one of those "teaser" ads where the results won't be revealed for a week. The ad closes with the slogan "The whopper virgins will decide!"
 
No video on YouTube, but you can get the gist at their website: 
 
 
Really irritating hype..."13 planes...two dogsleds...one helicopter...independent researchers...documentary by an award winning director..." blah blah blah.
 
This is just wrong on so many levels. If they really did what they said, they spent a bundle on a stupid ad campaign FOR A FREAKING HAMBURGER, Angry when a lot of people don't know if they'll be able to afford a hamburger much longer. And they certainly gave a great impression of the culture here in the good old USA by tramping into these wild regions with all their stupid equipment for a burger commercial!!!! No wonder other people hate us.
 
Another STUPID STUPID STUPID ad from BK!!!!! Can we get a "smiley" of a VERY ANNOYED PERSON jumping up and down and waving his arms? PLEASE?
 
Hundreds of threads killed.

Wow, how stupid!!   And especially in this economic crisis to spend TONS of money advertising a less than $5 hamburger.    And the results are not being revealed yet?

WHO F**KING CARES!!!!

I'm sure people are on the edge of their seats over this one.

I'm happy I havent seen this one yet.

Even if they chose Big Macs do you think BK would advertise it? I doubt it, we already know what the "results" will be.

I actually just logged on this morning to list this stupid ad. Whopper Virgins? How'd they get away with that? I doubt this campaign will be up long, once little Dick and Jane start asking mommie what a virgin is.
 
Besides, if you took some backwater Thai villager whose probably spent his entire life eating small amounts of rice, steamed vegetables and maybe some fish or chicken, and suddenly forced a Big Mac and a double-meat & Bacon Whopper down his throat, he'd probably vomit it all back in a few minutes. Now that would be a funny election: which is better, BK or McDonalds? Neither, now go get some spicy Thai chicken!

You left out another funny result. What if the biggest jungle explorer cliche came true, and the natives were cannibals? Not necessarily ones about to eat them, but ones who couldn't care less about something like beef.

That or sitting on the toilet( if they have one) with the runs.Confused  How are they supposed to keep these burgers from going bad transporting them through a jungle.
As Heza already mentioned, do you think BK will announce it if Thai's prefer Big Macs over a Whopper.

That's what I thought this topic was originally about.   Those dorks dressed in hamburger suits.   Talk about virgins.   Who wants to date the nerd in a hamburger costume??

I wonder if a jihadist gets 72 Whopper virgins after being martyred?  "Dude, this isn't what I signed up for!"

It would make more sense if the Whopper and Big Mac whores made the choice.
 
We know what we're talking about.

As long as we don't see people going "American Pie" on the burgers to lose their "virginity".....   Kinda gives a new meaning to the phrase "hot beef injection", eh?
 
And, you're welcome for the unwanted visual image.

So I guess if the people who never ate a Whopper are "Whopper virgins" & Burger King ended their "Whopper virginity", then Burger King is, in essence, a DICK.
 
Hey BK.... you're a DICK!!!!!!
 
Nice ad campaign, you DICK!!!!
 
Way to go, you DICK!!!!
 
Thanks for yet another stupid, annoying commercial, you DICK!!!!

What if they say they prefer the Whopper because it tastes most like dog?

They would probably edit it in the sound booth so that it sounded like they said it tasted like God.

(Chinese guy spits out his bite of burger)

"Ugh!  Holy crap, how in the world did you guys become so big, eating this stuff?   And you make fun of what WE eat?"
 
This is why the rest of the world think we are clearly insane.

For added entertainment, the guy delivering the burgers should be dressed in that Burger King get-up.Wink
They should give each "virgin" a complimentary double roll of bath tissue, they'll need it afterwards.

I think going into another country and accosting citizens while dressed in that costume and wielding fast food could be considered an act of war.

Sounds like a pathetic commercial...don't see Burger King convincing us to come racing in for a feces burger...

<<<===even the expensive ones ($175, on Wall Street (no, this isn't from BK))

Then again, maybe we need to establish a new kind of relationship with China...they have something, here! May inspire a 'social change', in regard to eating habits.
