Burger King Windows 7 Whopper: Kill It With Fire

Burger King Windows 7 Whopper: Kill It With Fire

Alright, it's official. Advertising has gone too far. I don't mind Google combing my emails in order to target me with better ads, I don't mind laughable attempts by corporations to create Internet memes, and I don't even mind embedded ads in the text of web articles. That stuff is just the price we pay for a ridiculous amount of free Internet content.

But I do have an issue with one of Microsoft's new Windows 7 advertising attempts. As AppleInsider notes, they have quite a few. There's a Windows 7 Family Guy episode on the way, and I'm fine with that. Microsoft is decorating a Spanish village named Sietes ("Seven") and giving free copies of their OS to a Dutch town called Zevenhuizen ("Seven Houses"). Both of those things are fine as well, even kind of cute.

What I have a problem with is the Windows 7 Whopper, which launched exclusively in Japan today. This burger has SEVEN, count them, SEVEN, patties for 777 yen ($8.53). The idea of such a concoction is disturbing enough, but the actual picture...urgh. The thought of human beings cramming this soggy mountain of meat and grease into their gullets is enough to make me weak at the knees. I would call the Windows 7 burger a crime against God, but its very existence is proof against the existence of a divine creator.

Why, Microsoft and Burger King? Why would you do this to people? Aren't enough people dying of heart attacks already?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
