The King Dances, Gets Sent to A Friend


Crispin is at it again with those Burger King microsites. Campbell Mithun has created a site for Burger King that lets you select particular dance moves for a puppet King to make, watch it and send it to a friend. That's it. Nothing more. Simple. Straightforward. Not sure if it's going to sell any hamburgers but, then again, it's just a fun time waster. It's nice to see a less scary version of the King here.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that came from Campbell Mithun in Minneapolis. In fact, I'm positive.

Oh yeah, and vote for it on

This is kinda funny. It's so silly and simple. I'm glad they didn't try to do more with it.

That's sweet and silly and funny. I sent it to my nephew and niece and, altho I never eat anything that blinks, they definitely eat BK burgers and fries.

Well it's not like the other shit CPB puts together sells hamburgers either.

Um "geisha" is one of their dance moves... A bit offensive if you ask me... plus, a "geisha" used to be somewhat of a prostitute (and entertainer) back in the day. Not quite sure it's appropriate for kids... just my thoughts...

Actually, "Geisha" means "person of the arts" when translated from Japanese. The term originated to describe skilled entertainers; originally most were male, believe it or not. The puppet is just doing a dance to Japanese music. Nothing innapropriate going on. Have you watched kid's TV lately? A lot worse stuff there. This is just plain silly fun.
