Has anyone besides me seen that idiotic commercial for their new steakhouse burger????? I joined a page "my3cents.com" just so I could complain to them and told them that a "deserving" man is NOT a man who does not neuter his dog...that they are sending out the message to millions of male viewers that its cool not to neuter...and how dare they....I also called the local stores with the same complaint. I couldn't find an email for them anywhere on line.

sorry, maybe I should tell a bit about the commercial, a man is debating whether to buy himself the new "man" burger and his dog disagree'd, so the man replies "oh yeah? well who decided NOT to neuter you" and the dog then agree's that he deserves two.......................
because nothing more says, "You deserve a reward" like creating more unwanted puppies! geta grip burger king.......

I've thought the exact same thing about that commercial Melinda. Everytime I see it I get a little angrier. Good for you for letting them know how inappropriate it is, maybe I'll do the same!

I just saw that the other day and I really hated it. I have seen many BK commercials and they tend to be really funny (I especially like the ones making fun of MacDonalds) but this was in pretty poor taste:frustrated::yell:.

That and you should have wrote in your email about the thousands of helpless animals are tortoured and the majority of them are slaughtered alive. People should think about that before eating a burger, eating pork, eating chicken, etc.

I saw that too. And when i started ranting about it in front of mom she had the nerve to say this.


Mom- Maybe they didnt nueter him because they want to breed him"

Me- "Hes a mutt. Which means no registration or health guarantees and son on and so forth"

Mom- " You are becaoming such a dog SNOB!"

Me- "I choose not to be unedcted about the fact that there are thousands of unwanted dogs and puppies being euthed as we speak"

Mom- "No, your just a dog snob"


That made me mad. Its people like my mother that is runining dogs.

We have seen the commercial too. At first my husband chuckled, because of the so called "man humor" of it.
Then he stopped chuckling and looked at me and said "wait, actually that ain't so funny"

We too have sent our email of protest.

BTW, the last time I ate at Burger King, was ohhh 10 yrs ago, there was a fingernail in my hamburger, I have never eaten there again:yuck:

Oh and please don't bash my hubby for chuckling at first, he has this weird compulsion to laugh about anything that has to do with ummm...."testees",
you should see how he reacts to videos of guys getting hit in the plums, I swear he turns as red as a tomato, and he laughs like a hyena!
At least he got the "gist" of the issue after he chuckled momentarily.

I saw that commercial myself and wondered what the heck their ad firm was smoking. Even if they meant it as a "joke" that's not something to joke about because there are serious morons out there who already think that, so saying it on TV makes it worse!

Where can one write to protest? The only thing I've had at BK lately is the veggie burger, but I'll totally forgo that if they don't retract that commercial.

LOL That's ridiculous.

Jessica is such a dog snob :crazy: I'm sure your mom just does not understand the full impact of what you are talking about. I still get people who come into where I work and wanna breed their dogs or buy dogs and stuff like that. Most just don't understand... the rest are just :loser:
