Mary J. Blige Sings for Burger King, David Beckham Charms
Burger King is really trying to step up its game; along with a revamp of its menu to mimic the likes of McDonald's and Taco Bell (breakfast burritos, fruit smoothies, chicken strips, etc.), the third-largest burger chain has released a wave of celebrity-filled ads.
First, there's Mary J. Blige, singing about "crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, ranch dressing, wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla," set to her latest song "Don't Mind." It's not exactly the most innovative take ever, with critics noting that Blige peddling chicken feeds into a stereotype.
