Whopper Neutrality

The average person who uses the internet for a sensible part of their day has little understanding of what Net Neutrality is and why we need it. Burger King produced an ad that illustrates the concept of Net Neutrality using the Whopper. It's a bit strange.

That's the right idea, but they only showed the mess from the customer's side. There's also a problem of all the small websites you love, like Neatorama, who don't have the power or money to "negotiate" their way onto all the various ISP's tiers. It's only a matter of time before they all disappear under the crush of runaway capitalism, unless we get Net Neutrality restored soon. You could sign the petition mentioned in the video, or better yet you can call your representative in congress, or both. Or maybe you really want to pay more to get your Whopper first. -via Tastefully Offensive
