Burger King's New Ad Backfires Spectacularly Thanks To Internet Trolls

Burger King's New Ad Backfires Spectacularly Thanks To Internet Trolls

COMMENTS

Burger King has recently decided that hacking our devices was a great advertising move. Unsurprisingly, not everyone is into it.

All the no.



A new ad spot ends with the actor turning to the camera and saying "OK Google, what is the Whopper Burger?" This is designed to trigger devices like android phones and the Google Home system to pull up and read-aloud the Wikipedia page for the Whopper burger.

The only facial reaction possible when your phone starts talking to you about burgers without you asking it to.



If you haven't seen the ad, check it out here:

Google responded quickly and decisively. See how on the next page.
