Once again, Burger King has done it again. I first noticed it when I went to a Burger King and they had placemats and posters for the Whopperettes. It's basically a dance number with women dressed as the different parts of the Whopper, even the ketchup. I liked the costume designs. Clever. I mean, how do you design a costume for a slice of tomato? Nice job. I never thought I'd say that a slice of onion looked hot, but it does. Then I went to the website, and it's...interesting. You can make a show where the parts of the Whopper jump into place, and even watch the commercial which apparently inspired it. It's nice and showy, very retro. I like it. Not nearly as weird as the Subservient Chicken. I especially like how they made dance numbers out of washing lettuce and grilling the hamburgers. I can't help thinking this isn't the cast members' finest moment, though: "What was your last dancing job?" "I was in the Whopperettes commercial. I played the ketchup."
