Billy Eichner Wants to Flame Broil Burger King for Ripping Off His Act

Comedian Billy Eichner wants to put Burger King over a flame and broil it after the fast food joint allegedly ripped off his Billy on the Street routine for a new ad.

The commercial, which aired Sunday evening during Fox’s football coverage, features a frenzied host frenetically asking a pair of teens about a 10-piece nugget box, which costs $1.49. When that amazing price was revealed, the host and his interviewees both let out a shout, akin to how Eichner yells at his subjects and quickly moves along on the street.

Whether or not the ad was directly ripped from Billy on the Street is up for debate, but Eicher took to Twitter to bash the company and ask his followers to do the same:

Other comedians got in on the act as well:
