Wake Up With The King, Or Die Trying
I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to go out on a limb here over this one. That Burger King commercial where the icon of the franchise offers his shocked and disturbed friend, who apparently has just awoken from his slumber, one of those new breakfast sandwiches literally scares the fuck out of me. Not only is it insanely creepy that the dude is wearing a mask and costumed with all of the royalty garb (including the staple Burger King crown), but the fact he's just sitting there waiting for this unsuspecting guy to wake up and offer his delectable deep-fried breakfast treat is downright disturbing. The part that irks me the most is when the king reaches for the sandwich behind his back. My reaction would probably be more like "dude is either about to stab me or reintroduce the hellish BK Value Menu." Anyone actually remember when they had tacos on the menu for 99 cents? It practically made Taco Bell look like Ruth Chris compared to that shit.
