    Stop Showing Up On Football!!!

    I really wish he would stop intruding on my football games!  He shows up on "NFL on FOX" and dances with Cletus!  It freaks me out when I'm trying to relax & watch football!

    Makes Me Shiver

    The king is like the annoying next door neighbor that won't go away. You can yell all you want, yet he'll just stand there, holding a burger. The whole stalker thing is just scary. If that guy woke up in my bed with me I'd freak, wondering if maybe I had way too much to drink...

    One time some years back I was at a party and had been partaking in some green. I also had a lot to drink and as I walked by a window, I see the Burger King man's head slowly rising from outside the window. It was only someone in a mask but at the time it scared the **** out of...

    I used to think I was the only one. When I told my friend that I didn't like the Burger King guy, he laughed at me :-( I knew I couldn't be the only one that felt this way, I'm glad I found this group. I was really creeped out when they used to have that commercial when he would...

    Now That I Think About It

    How can burgers be marketed with this pervert at the head. People here have a point with this one.

    What the heck were they smoking that day when the marketing department came up with this guy?  Seriously. What a creepy character. I don't care if he did leave a dollar in my pocket, I would be utterly disturbed.

    Just Plain Weird!

    Big plastic head with that fake smile......totally freaks me out. It sure doesn't make me want to eat their burgers! What was their marketing department thinking when they thought this one up? I am sure there are many little kids that have nightmares about this one!

    Too Weird

    His face has a odd, too happy/creepy happy expression ...ugh and the fact that it's a normal person wearing a huge mask just makes it worse. Luckily I've not seen too many Burger King adverts.

    From the First Time I Saw Him

    Those were the commercials that were extra creepy, where the guy wakes up, opens the curtains and the 'King' is standing right outside his window. I think that the King is the kind of mascot H. R. Giger might've come up with if he went into advertising instead of becoming an...

    I want to state up front that I am not homophobic, nor dose it bother me if anyone is gay, or bi. Having said that I would just like to ask one question. Do you think that they could have made the King any Gayer? After the first time we saw him was when some guy wakes up to find...

    Maybe He Ran Out of His Meds?

    He kind of looks like an escapee from a reallllly bad Renaissance Fair. If I woke up and that creep was under my bed I'd probably just have a heart attack...It would save me from having one from one of those nasty burgers he pushes.

    My 7th birthday I had a party at Burger King.

    I remember the Burger King dude coming up to me, running his fingers along my back singing happy birthday before resting his head on my shoulders and whispering, happy birthday into my ear.

    Being in the advertising/design business for over 15+yrs I would have to agree that the new Burger King guy is frightening. Someone should fire the ad agency that came up with that one, and quick. My kids are freaked out by it and isn't that a target audience for fast food joints...
