ProudWhopper“To show its support for LGBT rights, Burger King filmed a commercial at one of its restaurants in San Francisco that was on the city’s Pride Parade route. The fast food chain documented consumers’ reactions as they ate their Proud Whoppers, many wondering out loud what made the brightly-packaged burger different from a regular Whopper.  The sandwich’s wrapping, however, unveils the message “We are all the same inside.””

One thought on “Proud Whopper

  1. How about some critique? We might start our analysis with three observations: First, there is a dead animal inside, with the message that we are all the same — full of death and exploitation. Second, a hamburger strikes me as a patriarchal construct — meat surrounded by two (implicitly inferior) buns. Third, the commodification of LGBT rights is also problematic, given that its attempt to be culturally subversive it is still economically complicit.
