Burger Kings Bold Advertising Goes Even Riskier with Moldy Whopper
"You seen the picture yet? The ultra gross. Close up photo of a Burger King Walker sprouting white fur and vivid blue. Green Mold If you haven't seen it yet you probably should. The ad campaign breaks all the rules of advertising the high resolution video and photos so shocking that ad weeks David Greiner wrote quote. There are only two eras in advertising ads. That came out before Burger King's Moldy Walker and adds that came after Burger King's moly robber at the heart of the campaign is a forty five. Second time lapse video that shows a freshwater growing mold over about a month. You know like an old national geographic film of say a butterfly growing in a cocoon. Or maybe the life cycle of a cockroach set to a nineteen fifty-nine recording of Dinah Washington's singing that old classic what a difference a day makes and yes that sparked a chuckle maybe an outright guffaw. The campaign is also sparking a lot of controversy in some circles. It's considered so bold that it's brilliant in others. It's considered a total flop. Nowhere is it. Forgivable in it's endless war with McDonald's Burger King has made a name and won awards as an advertising risk taker but this particular campaign takes the cake. But why why do this to call attention to its plans to roll out a whopper free of artificial preservatives throughout the US. By Year's end the whole point of the ad as evidenced by a Burger King Tweet. The beauty of real food is that it gets ugly given enough time. What Burger King Chief Marketing Officer? Fernando Machado is counting on here. Is that by implication will remember and savor only the good part of that equation. How great fresh food looks and tastes. When it's new you might say. This is a gamble. Burger King says it's already removed all artificial ingredients from walkers in many European countries including France Sweden and Spain according to Market Watch. And it's taken them out of whoppers in four hundred American locations. That's out of about seventy five hundred burger kings in the US going further. The company said all menu items will be free of artificial colors flavors and preservatives at stores in the US and in many European locations. Mcdonald's made a similar announcement three years ago saying it would remove artificial ingredients from seven of its ten burgers market. Watch reported at a wonder what the three are didn't have it removed. Burger King Machado told Fortune magazine that he was inspired by social media photos. People have taken a food so laden with preservatives. They didn't ever look old like six year. Old French fries without a speck of mold or as some have noted it could be an intentional day at the so-called last McDonald's cheeseburger in Iceland which has been on display since two thousand nine when the last McDonald's disappeared from the country. It looks conspicuously unaffected by the ravages of time. According to Ad Week according to the Iceland Review you can watch a livestream although well you know. Nothing happens so far. The Moldy Hopper Campaign has received twenty one million social media impressions that according to Ad Week but sixty percent of those called it disgusting. Still Ad Week writes. That doesn't mean the campaign failed. However since Burger King itself pointed out that fresh food gets ugly. But the nauseated reaction does elevate a criticism that often dogs burger kings out of the box advertising.

So for now wing aviation will deliver small consumer items to only to rural communities in Virginia, Blacksburg and Christians Berg, many companies have complained that the permitting process is onerous wing had to create extensive manuals training routines and a safety higher rookie, Joe says any air carrier.

So we can only imagine the kind of trouble. He's going to get into is the year progresses. Can't. I'm glad you're still with us. My gosh. Hey, George how you doing great. How how have you been I appear to become quite dangerous recently? The press seems to be making me out to be a super villain. I recently read about myself in the Hollywood reporter in fortune magazine, when they talked about our Kelly being banned from Austria. Oh, yeah. And they'd lumped in with Chelsea Manning. Chris Brown and Gavin mcginnis or the proud boys, and I you know, I have a lot of sympathy for people reading the news because I looked at all these other names, and I'm like, okay. I think everybody knows who they are. But there's everybody's going who the heck is this can act live. I'm starting to have a little sympathy for voldemort from Harry Potter.

"That's a lot of toilet paper. Even if it's the cheap guy so on its face. It's absurd. But then they have to throw him. This is why I. Tangent court. I've kind of reached my limit where it's like you. Can't you can't trust anything? Fortune magazine. I used to read fortune magazine all the time. And now crap like this makes me think why would I trust anything fortune says when you're sending a tweet through my time line that says that the average American just take the average Joe I don't care whether you got him Royds don't have him Royds. I don't care whether you got diarrhea. You don't have diarrhea. I don't care whether you're not constipated. I don't care whether you you know, you listen to the entire Michael Brown show sitting on the commode. I don't care three rolls of toilet paper every single week. That's just not realistic. And that it's devastating force. What are you doing? Are you buying like, well, you know, we we buy the premium toilet paper that comes from the rainforest. Yes. Because when we write we wipe our asses, we wanna make sure it's with, you know, trees that have been where you from the California redwoods. You know that sort of reaction by ordinary people ought to have convinced fortunes editors when when people are like, wait a minute. Not everybody has the same bathroom habits. Everybody has the same bathroom needs. But everybody's reaction when you when you went through, and you read the the the the replies to the tweet were everybody was saying that seems like an awful lot. You would think that that would have convinced fortune. To fact, check their information. But instead what did they do? Fortune magazine took those figures that were passed around by the natural Resources Defense Council. Who's that? You say, that's an environmental advocacy group. Republished them nearly word for word and by doing. So does what? They turn their magazine. If you can still call it a magazine. Can you still get a fortune like at the newsstand? I dunno mind shows up on my texture. They just turn their magazine into a microphone for a special interest group. Now when you click through the story, you read that the US consumes more toilet paper than any other country almost three rolls per person each week and the brands that we choose because we're Americans are not sustainable with hardwood trees being pulped to create the soft toilet paper consumers want. So following the United States annual use of one hundred and forty-one rolls of toilet paper per capita is Germany with one hundred and thirty four rolls per capita and ninety kingdom with one hundred twenty seven Japanese consumers. Average only ninety one rolls annually the Chinese averaged just forty nine. Now, leaving aside the comparisons to foreign nations China has its own unique issues with toilet paper. Let's focus on that figure of one hundred and forty-one rolls per person per year taking it at face value that works out to two point seven one rolls per American per week, so already we have an exaggeration in the fortune story, but you can reasonably chalk that up to rounding off the number to make a sink headline and a click bait headline. Fortune does link to the natural Resources Defense Council webpage. From which the claims are drawn the study notes that one hundred forty one rolls per person per year for Americans and gives it source as a study conducted by STA Teesta a market research group in that survey of the toilet paper industry statistics also gives one hundred and forty-one role figure, but for the first time in this footnote on we receive a crucial bit of information Teesta informs readers that they're figure assumes that one roll of toilet paper. Weighs ninety grams. That's not very much toilet paper. Then when you dig deeper into the sales figures, you can see that sales of toilet paper in the United States were estimated at twelve point seven kilograms per person per year. So if you divide twelve point seven kilograms by ninety grams that gives you a hundred and forty one point three roles which runs off two hundred and forty-one matching the figure found out found throughout this entire story. So far, so good. But what about that ninety Graham figure is that really how much a roll of toilet paper ways, which begs the question, and this is the only place where you're gonna find yourself. How much does a roll of toilet paper awake? Like most Americans. I have no idea. I have you ever sat and you have you ever. Wait your toilet paper. I have not what is wrong with you. I don't know go home tonight. No. Because now, you're gonna know the answer. And so you you'll just lie about it tomorrow. Will you will won't you? Maybe. Yeah. Converting ninety grams to traditional measurements. Which means I have to go to to to do that. Because I can't I can't make these conversions. Converting that ninety grams yields a figure of three point one else's or just about one fifth of a pound now that sounds a little light so quick Google search or being search duck duck go search reveals one according to an article on the website of MIT the average role rate ways half a pill or two hundred twenty seven grams. So how do you know, which figures, correct? So you look up toilet paper on Amazon and you'll find listing for thirty rolls of Scott bath tissue common brand. What we use? I should have checked before. I came. Part of the Amazon's business model is knowing the size and weight of everything that it ships for that product, the thirty role of Scott, bath tissue. They give a shipping weight of fifteen point two pounds. When you divide that by thirty roles, you get almost exactly one half pound per parole. Just as in my t says, you should the zero point two pounds is probably the plastic packaging or the relatives. So if you take the actual weight of a roll of toilet paper half-pound divide, the twelve point seven kilograms per person per year by that it produces a yearly total of fifty six rolls per year or slightly more than only one a week for every American. Three. So that we've already debunked fortune magazine's claim that the average I shouldn't say, well, actually, I will say fortune because fortune was stupid enough to just reiterate or just to. Reclaim or claim the same numbers that the natural Resources Defense Council put in there didn't even question. No editors right? Not even a reporter who are. The we are the press release from the national Resources Defense Council in their good environmentalists sluice just put that in the magazine. Miss put it out on Twitter because nobody's gonna question it in besides just destroying destroying Lola trees in the world. To tell you about having to take a number two. What was in Russia? One time. No never heard this story. Do you want to hear the story? Sure, I want to. But I have a feeling you're going to tell me. Anyway, I think I'm gonna tell you anyway. So you you've always heard the stories about Russia and no toilet paper. No you've never heard that now. Well, back in the old Soviet Union days. Toilet paper was a scarce commodity. It was a treasured commodity, but I never went to the old Soviet Union. I only went to Russia. I went to Russia a lot. But the first time I went to Russia. Let's just say that after the land. Drive into Moscow. Escort getting you through the traffic, and you go to this banquet because they're hosting the undersecretary, right? I never really liked vodka until I went to Russia. And so as they were pouring vodka. I was pretending to drink it. Because I didn't really like vodka. In my State Department protocol officer came over to me and said mister secretary. You're offending the Russians by not drinking your vodka. Now, remember, they toast, everything. You you stand up you told you sit down you toast. Somebody goes to the bathroom. You toast. Somebody somebody farts, you toast, somebody sneezes you toast. There's a lot of toasting going on. So to make the State Department happy with the protocol chief choose you out you need to pay attention. I started drinking the vodka. Turns out it's really good Russian vodka good Russian vodka. Is fantastic. Okay. You don't like about could do. I don't like bucket. Now what I'll bring y'all bringing a bottle of really good Russian vodka. You will try it. Try it needle center enthusiastic can guarantee l like it. Okay. So anyway, I'm eating all of this crap food that the Russkies have at this banquet. And now, I'm just dousing myself with vodka, right? Then we go to our first briefing. And I'm sitting there, and you know, when your stomach starts to rumble. And you know, that oh it's about, you know. Yeah. Like a baby diaper. I was like a baby about to blow out by diaper. So excuse myself from the from the briefing. Was this gigantic government building? Nobody spoke English. I'm just trying to find the bathroom, and I gotta find a bathroom fast. Finally, find the bathroom I run in just opened the first stall blow out my diaper, right? I look over. Guess what's not there? What's not fair to the paper? Oh, no. There's no toilet paper. And what did you do? I very delicately pulled my suit pants. Went to the other stalls till I finally found. A newspaper. I put that old Pravda the use. And that's my story. Yeah. You don't seem to have been there and team by that story whatsoever. Why I mean when you go to other countries, maybe we should come down on the food a little bit. You won't feel that way. Maybe other countries when the under secretary of homeland security shows up maybe the other have toilet paper for me. Maybe you should learn the travel with it and do a little research on what they have in their restrooms. It's a government building. You would think of all the places that might with. That would probably have toilet paper. It would be Amer calm. It would be the government agency. Right. No. Of course, not still in Russia. Do you? How do you had the exact same reaction when I got back to the hotel and told her what had happened? I don't know. Was it that her name start with a t and Amera? Hamra could be could be spouses are always there. What did just cut your legs out from under? You can just tell you what an absolute idiot. You are. Oh, let's see the trees the trees. So also fortune magazine says that we are devastating force. Tuck turn gamble says to fortune one hundred percent a Proctor and gamble would fiber comes from responsibly managed forests certified by third parties such as the forest stewardship council, virgin, fiber and tissue products is preferred by consumers, and quote does the job much more efficiently. Would you like to be the spokesperson for Proctor and gamble in? Somebody ask you about some stupid, dumb ass story and fortune. And is it true to us? Virgin fibres? And you have to explain that. Yes. You do because it does the job more efficiently. How many times do you think they've used that phrase in the PR department?.
