Mark Duffy, a blogger and an advertising copywriter at a major New York City firm, said the advertisement is among the "worst" he's ever seen in more than 17 years of industry experience. |
"I've seen a lot of sexual innuendo ads and this is about the worst, especially for something as mainstream as Burger King," Duffy told FOXNews.com. "I was a little repulsed by it. It's really misogynistic to women and it's also unappetizing."
Duffy said it appeared the woman's face in the advertisement had been retouched to make it look like a doll and that the American cheese on the sandwich seemed a little too white.
"It's outlandish," he said. "They obviously didn’t hire a top-notch food photographer."
Duffy, who called on Burger King to terminate the ad, said there's little else marketers could have left to the imagination.
"It's really distasteful on the appetite level and on the social level," Duffy said. "The ad pretty much speaks for itself. How much more do they have to spell it out for you?"
This blogger takes himself waaaaayyy to seriously and is overplaying the sanctimonious card. He just needs to get some and stfu...
