End of a Raunchy Era? Burger King Drops the Ad Agency Responsible for Bad Blow-Up Doll Burger Porn and Whopper Freakout

by

It’s been a rough couple of years for Burger King. With McDonald’s and Subway vying for fast-food world domination, BK has been left struggling to overcome sliding sales and falling market share. The chain’s latest attempt to reverse the trend, according to Nation’s Restaurant News, has been to part ways with its advertising agency, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, although it’s unclear whether the agency was fired or resigned. In any case, it will be interesting to see whether the company continues in the same vein of outrageous and raunchy ads that have been its hallmark in recent years, including such gems as the blow-up doll burger porn (pictured) and the”crazy” Steakhouse XT burger ad that so enraged the mental health community.
