Is Anyone Else Afraid of the "Burger King" King?

I was just thinking of how scary and creepy the "Burger King" King is. Does he terrify anyone else? I remember how scared I was when he started appearing on commercials. He would pop up in people's windows at their house and would be there when they would wake up. I mean, can you imagine waking up with this guy next to you? I would have a heart attack! I'm am scared just writing this post!



I am afraid of three things in life: spiders, clowns, and the Burger King.

There are probably more people afraid of the Pope than the Burger King. Just saying.

The worst was his appearance in "The Sith Sense" game, giving advice to Darth Vader

If he wore a sombrero, he'd be alright - but with a crown, he just looks creepy.

I think even the Burger King marketing arm knows how creepy the Burger King is and they've purposely played that up.

As a kid who was terrified of the CBS Eye, I can empathize.

I think we should turn this into a discussion of how the King might hurt Trek XI ticket sales because he's just so damn scary. We can be on-topic if we try!

Leave the thread here this is relevant to Trek XI because of the Burger King tie-in!!!!!!!!!!

Infact I demand the king be pasted into dozens of Trek screencaps asap!

^ Ahhh... please no! Trekmovie.com said they shot Burger King commercials on the bridge of the Enterprise. It would be scary/funny if they made Zachary Quinto's Spock dress up like the Burger King for the commercial!

On a side note, the "Supermodelquins" of the Old Navy commercials are also very disturbing. Especially the commercial when when of the "supermodelquins" is proposing to another and he breaks his finger off (or it falls off- I forget).

I dunno he still looks pretty scary with a sombrero.

I think the Pope could take the Burger King. As an unholy abomination, the King must have weaknesses. Say, holy water or flame broiling him just the way you like him. You must consume his charred flesh to kill him, it's the only way, with ketchup, and a side of fries.
