"Fire meets Desire!" That tag line, I will admit, captured my attention. Right up to the point where I seen the picture below and learned that Burger King is now selling *drum roll....wait for it* Cologne! And after seeing The King in his suave pose, I'm pretty sure I am now scarred for life. No more flame broil for me. Burger King now has a scent for love. It is called "FLAME."

What are your thoughts? Cheesy? *no pun* Or good marketing?

Re: Fire ♕ Meets Desire!

I can't believe Burger King allowed that - whoever said go ahead and put that gross image of a scantily clad man in there calling you in for sex, (obvious he's naked with a bearskin rug on him) has got to be CRAZY. This is a great example of what is wrong with advertising today - They can't come up with anything smart, they just try to shock people. This could have been an excellent site gag with just an actual burger sitting infront of the fire. Instead I'm totally grossed out. I have to say I can put up with a lot but that image is so disgusting that now I'll be thinking of that everytime I see a burger king sign and I'll just keep driving to the next fast food place.

eeewww

the marketing team really pushed the envelope with this one. i would expect this type of campaign/ad in europe, where it is expected.

Re: Fire ♕ Meets Desire!

"darling, what are you wearing? you smell so delicious." ew! maybe this will be the next cure for a hangover... smell it and puke. tahdah cured! but i agree with . i would give it to my little brother or maybe for a gag gift at next years party.

Interesting Scents to Bottle

PerpetualKid has a LOT of odd gifts and such... they have a fragrance section with odd scents... colognes that smell like Crayons, Sushi, Cannabis Flower, SweetHearts, and Vinyl........ so... bottled-burger doesn't surprise me...

Evidently they used to have glue and paint scented ones too... but I can't find them...
