Mary J. Blige and Burger King have been in hot water ever since a commercial she filmed for the fast food chain was leaked earlier this week. Blige says the commercial is not what she expected.
Blige thought she was going to appear in a dream sequence of the commercial, even though the cashier says "Go ahead, Mary" before going into the chicken song. Now, even if it was a dream sequence, she knew the lyrics she was going to sing and what the product was.
TMZ have Mary quoted as saying:
"I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you’re a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw go out."
Since the commercial has been leaked, social media sites have been blowing up about the commercial promoting racial stereotypes of African-Americans and chicken. You know, like the stereotype that when ever a white man sees someone scary, he's yelling for security. Or the one.....OK, I'm not going to go there.
Plain and simple, I love Mary J. Blige. However, she knew the lyrics and what the product is for. So does her saying that she did not approve of the finished ad hold any water at all....or BBQ sauce?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Last month, Wendy's surpassed Burger King to be the number 2 burger chain behind McDonalds. Look who's' now being talked about again....
The Dodgers and Angels over the weekend put themselves in a hole. The Angels moreso down 0-2 to the Yankees play at 1 P.M. and hope to win one today. The Dodgers got walloped last night 11-0 and did the right thing when down 6-0 and started planning for tonight's game. The Angels cannot go down 0-3 to the Yanks and the Dodgers cannot go down to the Phillies 3-1 either. Pivotal games today.
In football, Tom Brady was Tom Brady as the Patriots rolled over the Titans 59-0. Brett Favre pulled out another one for the Minnesota Vikings beating the Ravens who have now lost 3 in a row. The win less Chiefs beat the hapless Redskins and in the battle of the unbeaten, the New Orleans Saints beat the New York Giants in a game that was not close. The upset of the day was the Raiders holding the Eagles to 9 points to win. Wow.
Last week, we posted a video of Fox Sports going after Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo in a cartoon. We knew the video was harsh on Jessica and her weight and was soon pulled. Burger King, who sponsors the segment apologized to Jessica over it. Shame on the sports reporter who claimed the sent Jessica a grip of Whoppers to make up for it.-Dr.FB
Here is Megan Fox on her way to enter her local Target......yea right! Megan Fox was in Paris yesterday when she wanted to get something to eat.
She got her grub on at the Emporio Armani Cafe after attending Giorgio Armani Prive Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Show. We could only imagine what Megan would wear to Target or getting something to eat at Burger King.-Dr.FB
An agency in Singapore made these outdoor ads for Burger King. Oh HELL NO! They better not post this sh** in the US. What the hell, will I have to close my eyes to successfully make it through the BK drive through?
"Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER. Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American cheese, crispy onions and the A1 Thick and Hearty Steak Sauce."
I feel the mood needs to be lightened around here.
We posted this back in August but it is still catchy and funny and had to share again! Whatcha Think?-Dr.FB
