Here’s a marketing campaign which could have used a little more thought.
Burger King, on Thursday, announced it is rolling out a number of what it calls “Real Meals” — as a nod to Mental Health Awareness month. The meals include; the Blue Meal, the Salty Meal, the Yaaas Meal, the DGAF meal. And then there’s the Whopper (pun intended): The pissed meal.
Yes, somebody actually thought that was a good idea.
Credit to Burger King for wanting to shine a light on such an important subject. Nonetheless, Twitter agreed that they missed the mark. Here’s a sampling of the criticism:
Ticking one of the boxes here to try and make an add go viral and it completely blowing up in your face.

You know…Burger King could have donated money to mental health awareness organizations or give employees raises instead of fucking making color coded boxes to express how you feel when getting a fucking burger.

Feeling depressed? Stuff yourself with unhealthy fast food to fill up the emptiness you feel inside. #EmotionalEating #WorstAdEver I bet some Ad Guy in an office thought this would be a super cool way to market to Millennials ? #BurgerKing https://t.co/J0rLqNhXve

I, for one, think it's brave Burger King admits to no one ever being happy while eating there.
