Someone Made An Unauthorized Burger King Commercial, And It’s Probably Better Than All Legit Burger King Commercials

Someone Made An Unauthorized Burger King Commercial, And It’s Probably Better Than All Legit Burger King Commercials

bored panda - 1 month ago

Burger King is notoriously good when it comes to advertising and social media stunts. Remember the time they had the weirdest conversation on Twitter with Budweiser where it got crazier every message? And what about the time they released that ad showing how their new whopper would look in 34 days (hint: rotten), showing that being ugly is sometimes good in the food industry?

This time, the commercial doesnt come from Burger King itself, but from the film director Daniel Kontur. Daniel got on the website Specbank.com, where he found the script from an unauthorized commercial written by Dan Sorgen. In an interview with Bored Panda, Kontur said that he came up with the short commercial to show what Im capable of as a film director. And people were lovin it.

After the scriptwriter Dan posted the video on Reddit, the r/funny subreddit went mad with people claiming it’s the best thing theyve seen so far. A whopping 104k upvotes later, one can be sure whoppers will be flying off the shelves.
