Wendy's Baconator Offers Up Fat-Filled Fame
Joining the "we don't give a shit whether or not our burgers have three million calories, clog your arteries and turn you in to a lazy couch potato with no interest in accomplishing anything in life other than clicking your Wii" trend, Wendy's has introduced the Baconator, a one half pound, six bacon strip monstrosity possibly bigger than the Paris Hilton Bentley Burger.
To promote the burger's beefy, bacon, cheese, ketchup and mayonnaise-slathered massiveness, Wendy's is "inviting America to create "burger music", musical pieces that incorporate the vibrant sounds associated with preparing and serving a great hamburger" whatever that may be.
A Baconator Sound Bites Music Mixer helps visitors create a song which can then be shared with friends. The Creator of the best song, judged by producer Michael Hudson, will win a paid trip to a studio session with Hudson to further produce the song which will receive guaranteed major market radio play. Nine runner up prizes include $500, Wendy's Gift Cards, winning entry played on wendys.com and ThisisMyBurger.com. Winning songs will also be converted to ringtones for public download.
So forget bothering with American Idol. That's just too much work. Just sit back, down the Baconator, find inspiration and become a radio star. What could be simpler?
