Burger King Depicts Mascot in Gay Kiss with Ronald McDonald for New Ad Campaign
Breitbart ^ | 09/11/2020 | Jack Montgomery

Posted on 09/11/2020 8:22:54 AM PDT by Tench_Coxe

Burger King has launched a new advertising campaign in Finland featuring its eponymous mascot sharing a deep kiss with Ronald McDonald, along with the English slogan ‘Love Conquers All’.

The image is front and centre on the landing page of the fast food chain’s Finnish website, with various outlets with a focus on advertising showing physical posters at locations such as public bus stops as well.

The campaign appears to be in aid of Helsinki Pride Week, which was moved to September from its usual slot due to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. It also appears to have been influenced by the race politics of the Black Lives Matter movement, featuring the new version of the Pride flag topped with a black and brown stripe in order to “represent” non-white non-heterosexuals specifically.

Yes, its in Finland, but you have to wonder what is going through the heads of people at HQ. It begs the question: would Burger King do this in the US if they thought they could get away with it?

This corporate virtue signaling is going to get a backlash sooner or later.

Maybe it’s not homosexual. Maybe either Ronald or The King are actually cross-dressers!

The problem is, when even Chick-fil-A has sold out, where are you going to get road food?

Yuck. Like it’s food. 40 years ago BK wasn’t so bad. But for the last couple decades, I consider the absolute worst among the big burger chains. Low-grade burgers and inedible fries. What’s to like? I only eat at BK if I’m famished and it’s the only option in the airport terminal.

So, not only do they fail to feature their product, they spend their advertising dollars showing their competition’s mascot?

Some brilliant advertising there.

Maybe the Duke of Doubt was right after all, lol. Who else here remembers the characters from the ads from both chains that aired a lot on Saturday mornings back in the late 1970s?

Trying to normalize and render “harmless” depictions of homo promo.
