Thought for Food - Mentally Ill Advertisers & German Cupcakes
Burger King uses mental illness to sell food, KFC unveils the Double Down sandwich, and McDonald's introduces cupcakes to Germans. (06:41)

It's a 7 minute slice of video and the ambassador is on the tail end of the segment. All good stuff so enjoy and be patient.

@tsarstepan,
Pretty sure the goodie in photo #2 is a Klondike ice cream bar. A bit beyond the usual Mickey Dee menu.

@roger,
It is a Klondike bar. I expected a viewing of the video would clarify the punchline of his diplomatic cameo. Rolling Eyes

That was great!

That guy can't possibly be a real ambassador.

We have Burger King in the southern states over here (Oz) but in Queensland they are called Hungry Jacks. Someone owned the name and refused to sell it when they wanted to move in here, so they have a name change. This can be quite interesting in border towns like Tweed Heads.

Unfortunately we dont get cupcakes, though we regularly eat them, and we dont get Klondike Bars at our BK/HJ outlets.

@dangreen,
Thanks for the clarification. This guy seems familiar like one of those rare bird character actors where one can never get his name but can recognize his face and acting demeanor.

@Thomas,
Nah...that is what the CUPCAKES do, silly!

They likely assist with the decaying process, too! How delightfully Orouborosian.!!

Milo Minderbinder eat your heart out!

@dlowan,
Good for you!

Don't forget to come to New Jersey on your flight back. It's almost a shortcut.
