Is it real? Or a comedy piece?
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Man. But I do agree with the comment in the link

Quote:
Mark Crispin Miller, a professor of media studies at New York University and author of a forthcoming book on the marketing campaign behind the "Marlboro Man," said the ad reeked of a "certain desperation" just to make an impression.

Wow.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

It certainly wouldn't work as an ad in the U.S.

That's because we Americans like to go big. We are waiting for the big ten inch... record of my favorite blues.

True also we have never been not so uptight about certain matters either. In someways we are so behind everyone else. I'm not saying that If we weren't so straight laced on such subjects that this ad would fly either but the U.S. should get rid of some of the No No way of thinking.

Or ahead, depending on the point of view, of course.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Was it Burger King that had a TV commercial with a similar theme?

Different themes, but these ads were controversial a few years back...

"I Like Square Butts" and,

Texican Whopper.

Anybody else remember the "I'd hit that!" campaign? Can't remember if it was McD's or BK.

No, I'm thinking of an ad in which a young lady used her fist to show what she would do to swallow the whole Whopper. If that's what it was.

It was McDonald's. A modern classic. This guy really likes this sammich:

Also, the look on pro snowboarder Shaun White's face in this ad is priceless. (May be a look-a-like and not actually Shaun White.)

So the story goes that this campaign was the result of McD's trying to be 'hip' without actually knowing what the expression they were using meant.

I don't know what it is but most if not all of Mc Donald's slogan's I hate. They sound incredibly stupid. I don't like many commercials anyway. Don't even get me started on Carl's Jr's ads from about 6 years back.
