Now I want to eat seal meat.

Why are we green-lighting year-plus old TV ads that nobody liked in the first place?

ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Why are we green-lighting year-plus old TV ads that nobody liked in the first place?


maybe some of us are too hip for tv's. i actually live in one of the places in the video, so, getting a kick. i have seen fools eat burgers bun first, and all sorts of weird shiat.

I like to order a Whopper with a veggie patty. I'm no vegetarian, but it tastes exactly the same and I fell *slightly* better about myself.

My wife and I sat in a Canadian Denny's once and watched a guy eat a burger layer by layer with a knife and fork. It was bizarre. Bun, then lettuce, then tomato, pickle, meat, bun.

if you live within 15 minutes of a McDonalds you are not going to find people who are "off the grid", having never seen or eaten a hamburger before

That's because of the mayo to meat ratio.  The patty wouldn't taste the same by itself.

Some of those meatless burgers are actually pretty good if you have all the toppings to go with them.

Those people still haven't eaten a (proper) hamburger. Fast food burgers are fine and all, but come on...

Came here to say this. It's a shame these people who may only eat a burger once in their life and they're fed fast food crap. At least they get it off the broiler and fresh.

True. Although a charcoal grill would have been much easier to haul around and set up.

In 2008 I was in a tiny village in Laos. The people lived in huts and bathed in the river. Goats roamed the single, main path through the village. Children attended school consisting of a blackboard on the side of a wall, outside. The closest McDonalds or Burger King was hundreds of kilometers away in Thailand.

The huts had satellite dishes. The people watched Thai TV (Lao is like a less developed form of Thai) on LCD TVs. They knew what hamburgers were.

I find it hard to believe that in the last four years you could find people living within 15 minutes of a Burger King or McDonalds who had never seen a hamburger, let alone tried one (according to the video, they had to be withing 15 minutes of a restaurant). Advertising is everywhere, not just on TV.

The other thing that bugs me about this is that everyone is wearing traditional garb for their region. People tend to only wear traditional clothing on special occasions. Everything about this video is disingenuous, bordering on false.

"My wife and I sat in a Canadian Denny's once and watched a guy eat a burger layer by layer with a knife and fork.

I usually eat my burgers that way, at least if they're a half pound. They're just to big to comfortably fit in my mouth. After a few cases of burger parts sliding around making a mess, I just go with utensils. Did it today at a Fuddruckers. 5 Guys burgers I eat "normally".

Same here. Any burger too tall to fit in my gaping maw gets cut up with fork and knife. I don't eat them layer by layer, but I do tend to reach a point where the meat and bread components are being consumed separately.

I kept trying to skip ahead to the interesting part, stopping every 15-30 seconds or so, but all they ever kept saying was this. I bailed after about the 5th time at the 4 minute mark when they were still telling me what the damn premise of the video is. YEAH I GET IT.

It's a Burger King commercial.... so I'm definitely inclined to agree with you.

Any burger that is too big for your mouth is a gross misjustice of the genius of a hamburger!

Why don't you just order a cheeseburger salad?

A bed of lettuce, sliced onion and tomato, crumbles of ground beef, shredded cheese and garlic croutons. Top with ketchup and mustard or mayo and you're good to go.

yeah, wtf was that?? And the beginning had scenes of sled dogs and accessing remote locations.

Couldn't they seal burgers in plastic and preserve it til they get to the place and warm it up?

No, no...you're thinking about how they do it already at Burger King and McDonald's.

1, What a horrible waste of time and money
2. What a horrible promotion of cultural imperialism.

Sort of reminds me of religious missionaries who figure destroying a culture is ok as long as some of the people will accept Jesus.

Why do these sort of "documentaries" seem to be more about the "process" of making them, rather than the actual, you know, subject matter?

I was in Denmark in 1985 in a smaller town and ordered a hamburger. Yu couldn't pick it up. The shredded lettus overflowed and obscured the lower bun. You had to eat it with a knife and fork.

Aren't McDonald's and Whoppers formulated for an American palate?  Or are they "customized" for whatever country they will be selling them at?

My gf's nephew went to Shanghai for some band performance he was involved in, and he was just a high schooler so was very particular in what he ate.  He could only eat at McDonald's over there and he said that the burgers didn't taste the same.

When I was in Amsterdam, I think I went to one of the burger chains - I forget which - but what struck me was that instead of ketchup for the fries, it was this salmon-colored mayonnaise - which was also pretty good but not what I was used to.
 
2014-02-01 11:39:59 PM  
Bacon bits. I forgot bacon.

Or whatever else.

The point is, I like to have the flavor and texture of bread, meat, vegetables and sauces all in my mouth at the same time.

The whole time I was watching these poor people having to jam that shiat into their mouths, I was just fuming with irrational rage at the idea that these innocent souls were being polluted.

We've been eating at the trough too long ourselves to be saved. But for God's sake, leave those people alone.

The people didn't live 15 minutes from a Burger King or McDonalds. . .the test took place 15 minutes from a McDonalds and Burger King.  Many people were dressed in their "Sunday Best", so they were shipped in from their village to take the test.

For the taste test the subjects were brought to a location close to a McDonalds and Burger King. Then later, the crew took a Burger King grill to the communities.

It's probably the meat and how it's processed. I noticed the same thing when I first came to the US. Also lamb tastes much differently here than it did in the UK.
