Burger King's New Proud Whopper Might Give You Genuine Feelings Along With Your Meat Sweats
Burger King just released its “Proud Whopper” commercial marking the end of Pride Month, and it surprisingly hits all of the right emotional notes.
a women tearing up at the inclusive message
not one, but two endearing children showing us that the future will be a more compassionate place
one woman speaking to the importance of even small acts of acceptance
faux, second wave hippies carefully deciphering the complicated meaning behind a burger wrapper
one sweet looking, mildly amused old guy
And for the cynics in the audience, yes, this is just a commercial, Burger King could have zero vested interest in any and all social justice movements, and we might be chumps for falling for this. But consider it this way: it has now become more profitable for corporations to actively support gay rights than to not. That’s got to be worth something, right?
