    Wish i was a Whoper Virgin

    If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude; greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
    —Samuel Adams

    God... this is so stupid and offensive in so many ways I won't even bother.

    I like a whopper when I am eating it, but soon afterwards I usually get a strong urge to vomit. I'm not into mayo.

    I guess I'm the only one who enjoyed watching it? I thought it was interesting... but I like cultural exchanges like that.

    Not a Whopper fan...

    I can't remember the last time I've had one.  Burger King is sparse here now, so sparse that I don't really see them any more.  Every time I ate one I had the urge to hit the can about 15 minutes later.

    No required quests! And if I decide I want to be an assassin-cartographer-dancer-pastry chef who lives only to stalk and kill interior decorators, then that's who I want to be, even if it takes me four years to max all the skills and everyone else thinks I'm freaking nuts. -Madimorga-

    Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

    I don't know why people say this is 'disgusting and offensive'.

    How can someone be offended by it?  I can understand not liking fast food.. But I thought it was really cool.  They went to countries where people hadn't been affected by marketing, and had never experienced their food.  Not only that, but these people had never experienced a -burger- period.  They introduced them to something new.  They shared cultures while they were there.  They fixed their food for the villagers, and then the villagers let them try their food too.

    How is that offensive? They didn't demean anyone.

    tbh i dont like burger king, but how the people went out and did this survey i was glad to see they were unbiased and very respectful to the people they encountered. Dunno how anybody can be offended, Engima said what i would to the people who did get offended.

    Maybe suggesting girls grow hair on their chest isn't such a hot idea...

    I have to agree with this, all these people getting offended of every little thing is why this world is so screwed up, pretty soon people will start being appalled that someone told them hi..oh wait that already happens.

    Interesting how nobody has explained why they are offended by this yet.  Oh, I know.. because there isn't a good reason.

    There is a good reason.

    If you would like to go through clicking each of the persons who found this offending then you might come up with the reason yourself.

    Partly, it has to do with tradition and how we feel about the use of food and how you treat and present foods, especially around people who are less blessed than you, like people in the video.

    If you want to understand why people find this offending you will, if you just 'lol' at people's feelings, you will not.

  • SheistaSheista Member UncommonPosts: 1,203

    That didn't explain a single thing as to why anyone would be offended,  but thanks for playing.

    Well, I would have hoped it wasn't too hard. I will try to explain.

    American views on what food represents are very different to European's.

    We do not see food as commodity, we see it as a privilege. Any privilege should be honered and treated with respect, this includes foods of any kind.

    Bringing foods to another country just for taste testing would not go down very well here, this commercial would probably been taken of the air here.

    You are expected to treat food with a certain respect and are to be respectfull around people who lack foods or who are not privileged enough to choose the foods you can or are not able to afford them. This commercial directly violates said feelings which are cultural in nature.
