Burger King FINALLY Kills Off Their Terrifying Big-Headed Stalker Mascot
  |  @   |  

That’s right, that dream–haunting mascot that Burger King has been using in their commercial for years, has finally been slain.

After low numbers and falling significantly behind rival McDonalds, new ownership and a new marketing team are taking notes from their golden arches nemesis with plans to concentrate more on the actual product than amusement and laughs (or in this particular case, fear and horror), and will not be using “The King” anymore…at least not anytime soon.

I don’t know about you, but BK has had a string of rather unsettling commercials as of late””the small hands dude, the awkward extra set of hands via someone standing behind you, and of course, the King…who absolutely has to be a serial killer.

I don’t eat there, nor do I plan to in the near future, but this decision is one that simply had to be commended, despite the lacking “geek” association.

  3. Too bad they’re not doing something akin to when they blew up the Jack-headed Jack in the Box speaker in their 1980 commercial campaign.   I mean, they could have a knight come in and slay the hideous Burger King or something.  It’d be a memorable ad!

  4. That thing was grotesque. It should have it’s own horror movie series.
