  • Rather clever of the King

    I read this today and thought it was rather clever, It is certainly generating a buzz

    NEW YORK -- A new Burger King promotion has the blogosphere all abuzz.

    According to sogoodblog.com, the fast-food giant has sent BK agents out on the streets of Chicago and Orlando to "lose" wallets.

    When unsuspecting folks find the wallets, they're greeted by a red sticker explaining the promotion, as well as a small amount of U.S. legal tender ($1 or $5) and a restaurant gift card.

    Also in the wallet, according to sogoodblog.com, is a driver's license belonging to BK's current pitchman, "The King." Remember the guy with the crown who starred in those NFL commercials a few years back, sacking a quarterback and returning an interception for a touchdown? That's the guy.

    And if you look closely, you'll notice among his vital statistics: "HGT: TALL" and "DOB: TMI."

    What in the world is TMI?

    That is rather clever. I hope I find one of these wallets. :)

    Do they say where in Chicago these wallets are dispersed?

        Wouldn't that be a bit of a spoiler if they did say? ;)

          Well you know Chicago is pretty big. And downtown is already pretty messy on the weekdays. It would save me the searching. :row1_7:

              Well at least this promotion didn't have people calling the bomb squad like the Aqua Teen Hunger Force one they did a while back...

                    Ughh, the great Moonnite invasion of '07....

                    I was stuck right in the middle of that ordeal. The media blew it way out of proportion and really made it so much worse than it could have been.

                    I do love the BK commercials though, the king is pretty damn funny.

                          That just cracked me up. Too bad they won't do that in NY...

                            I can't say I'd be too offended by a reverse pick-pocketing. Sounds pretty good to me, really...
