Burger King Commercial

  1. Has anyone else seen this crock of hooey? What happened to Hootie (whatever his real name is...to me, he's Hootie)!? Dressed up in a fugly purple cowboy outfit, singing a song about cheeseburgers. I think Jimmy is the only one who has the ok to sing about cheeseburgers.
    How desperate does one have to be for money. Although, I would do it, but I feel it's a step-down for him. Anyone else seen this pitiful thing? -A

    Seen it, hate it, companies will go to any means to get public attention, even if it comes off annoying as all get out.

    I love it! He doesn't like being called "Hootie", his name is Darius. His band is "Hootie and the Blowfish" but he's not Hootie.

    Ummm, I don't know who the heck he is.
    But anyway the commercial reminds me of the stuff that nightmares are made of. It's scary and freaky at the same time. The "Burger King" is enough the scare the mess out of any 3 year old. I think it's horrible and so overwhelming.

    and you know that because you watch 'i love the 90's', right? (me too!!! :chuckle ).

    when i saw it, i took a double take!!! he's got the most ridiculous smirk on his face (or is it the 'i'm making $$ and don't care how stupid i look, smile??)

    I have no idea what commercial you guys are talking about, but I did really like Hootie and the Blowfish's remake of the theme song for the Goodbye Girl last year. It was a made for TNT movie that they promoted they bejaysus out of and ran repeatedly, but it still tanked.

    I know you really don't care. But since I'm the resident music geek. He's Darius Rucker, lead singer of the group "Hootie and the Blowfish". They are still making records, in fact put out at good one a couple of years ago. But in the 90s their debut album was one of biggest albums of the 1990s, selling more than any other debut album by a group...something like 14 million copies or so. They were huge with singles like "Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry" and "I Only Wanna Be With You". If you were alive in the early to mid-90s you heard them, as they were everywhere.

    Now you know. :hatparty:
