    Are they appropriate or are they trashy?

    Burger Kings New Ad Campaign

    Who is the targeted audience for this advertisement? Will women find it offensive? Will men find it suggestive? Will either of them run out and buy a seven incher because this picture suggests it makes you want to give or receive a BJ?

    The "copy" at the bottom of the ad -- not sure that you can even see it here -- takes the whole thing even further: "Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER," it says. "Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American cheese, crispy onions and the A1 Thick and Hearty Steak Sauce."

    Just about anything is better than that freaky giant head king dude, IMO.

    But yes, I would assume that both mean and women will find it suggestive, some of both will find it offensive and many will find it amusing. Does that help?

    It's not really a new issue, after all, perhaps just more blatant than burger commercials have been before. But sex is used to sell everything from tires, to phones, to designer water. Why not burgers?

    Sex truly sells!!! My wife said if I would buy her a new car we could have sex. I bought her the new car, and sure enough, she says we'll be having sex on August 15th. I bought the car back in January. Maybe I should have been a bit more explicit in the deal!!!:lol:

    (Just kidding... but the concept is the same!)

    Can hookers use sex in their advertisements, or should they use beer to sell themselves?
