Controversial Burger King ad makes its Whopper a prisoner’s last meal

While many people around the world wouldn’t find the idea of capital punishment appetising, there are always those who choose to swim against the tide.

Burger King has long been known to push the envelope when it comes to its ads. Can anyone remember when they redefined what it means to Eat Out? How about this more recent jab at McDonald’s?

Their latest ad raising eyebrows makes light of Death Row. Not the infamous hip-hop record label, but actual prisoners in line to be executed. Have a look:

The ad was done for the French market by Parisian agency Buzzman, so some viewers might argue that the real controversy is that someone actually wanted to eat Burger King (never mind as a last meal).

And how about that twist, huh? Well done. We just wish we could say the same about their food.
