Burger King and Sir Shake-A-Lot

Ever since BK's titular mascot, the Burger King himself, returned to commercials a few years ago, much has been made of how very creepy he is. But see, that's nothing. Wait until you get a load of his sidekick, Sir Shake-A-Lot.


This Burger King commercial from 1980 falls into the “what the **** were they thinking?” category. Sir-Shake-A-Lot shimmies like a speedfreak after snorting a line of crystal meth the length of John Holmes’ blue-veined-blood-bomber. Sir Shake needs some Thorazine, quick! The dude is fried.

As a new American (on purpose) I am still amazed by the local fascination people have with monarchy. On one hand we teach our kids that we wanted independence from the arbitrary and cruel system of breeding our own rulers and on the over you find commercial companies like "burger king", "mattress king" and even "royal-crest dairy". They know what they're doing by choosing this naming theme. People can't get enough of that crap. Not to mention "American Classics" like Disney having 90% of their story lines revolve around Kings, Queens and, of course, "who's daddy's little princess?"

The King in this ad isn't near as creepy as the King in the current ads. I think the current King in the BK ads is a creepy stalker and needs to go away.

was that reference to John Holmes' penis really necessary?
