Crispin + Burger King + SpongeBob = 99 cent Square Butt Burgers

9 Apr



“The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) has launched a letter-writing campaign demanding that Nickelodeon and Burger King immediately pull a new, “highly sexualized” television ad for BK’s 99-cent SpongeBob Kids Meal.” Read the rest of Media Post’s article.

    Re: Burger King/Sponge Bob commercial

    This commercial is sickening. Any commercial or program calling attention to young girls butts on public TV is not acceptable by any standards and should be removed immediately. It’s bad enough we already have to filter immoral programs and garbage shows presented on most channels today, from the eyes of our young children. Now, an all American food chain is stooping to this level to sell burgers. It’s just another example of the deterioration in standards of modern day media and we the people are getting fed up. Where has good programing decision making gone? Where have those who used commonsense, morals, intelligence and good clean humor in the decision making of what is considered appropriate standards, gone?

    I guess everyone is just sitting back and letting the evil, that has infiltrated all forms the media business, take over. Well, I’ll tell you what, this kind of trash may sell crap music to our teens, who think it’s cool because they aren’t offered much by way of better alternatives but, it isn’t going to sell burgers to families or people fed up with this sort of thing being used in promotions. Who ever the moron was that allowed this commercial to be released may have just doomed Burger King or at leased drastically hurt sales especially if America decides to boycott them because of it. This just might be the straw that pushes people to their limit. Our whole family as well as most people we know have already decided to no longer support Burger King.

    Someone ought to wake up and pull it off the air now, if it isn’t already to late.
    Those of you who don’t find this commercial unacceptable, support it or have to make rude comments will just show your imaturity, imorality or just plain ignorance. Hopefully when you are a few years older and have children of your own to protect, you’ll understand. So, until then, just try to listen and learn.

    “Any program calling attention to young girls butts on public TV is not acceptable by any standards” they didn’t call attention to young girls butts, the women featured in this commercial seemed to at least be in their mid-20’s. They can legally serve in the army, drink alcohol, and have sex with 90-year-old men. In addition, there weren’t any butts involved, but square boxes. Let me ask you something: are you worried about your son being turned on by boxes or your daughter wanting her butt to be square?

    All this reading has made me hungry – I’m going to Burger King. It is your responsibility to educate your children. Shielding them from everything that may be questionable, which I think this commercial is not, doesn’t help them in the long run. Haven’t you heard what they say about catholic school girls? Sheesh – grow up.
