Does the "Burger King" creep anyone else out?

We've all seen these commercials. I keep recalling one, where a lumberjack is alone in the woods, and he's cutting down a tree. The tree falls and behind it is a grinning Burger King with a hamburger on a plate. The smile looks like a "serial killer" smile. There's others where a person wakes up and ...there he is at your bed. I think I'd soil myself if that happened, not accept his dubious food offering.

It's been 11 years since I've had a good burger King burger. Then, in order to go for the low carb market, they changed their bread. Since then, every one of their burgers taste only of the bread with a slight burger flavoring. This is everywhere I've dared try one. burgers are my favorite food, but I've turned down free Burger King.

Then there's the BK attitude. They've an actor, with no self respect left, to wear a burger and pretend to be a real person. He stands outside other fast food chains and taunts them. Do they not realize that the workers there are the same types of teens working at BK? Do they realize these teens don't really care? I think I'd go out and fight him though if I worked at one of these. How is he going to hit me? He's wearing a burger for pete's sake.

I think they need to get rid of the Burger King by..I don't know..send him to the nearest asylum , and their attitude should be to change their food so that it doesn't cause gagging. I fondly recall when getting a whopper was a treat, now it's a travesty.
