Confirmed: New Burger King cologne smells like gasoline

posted at 12:30 pm on December 19, 2008 by Allahpundit

So says the woman in glasses, affirming that the Sex Panther comparison is even more apt than we thought. Slowly but surely, I’m coming around to seeing the genius here: The sheer curiosity of knowing what Burger King thinks smells sexy makes me want to order some myself. My only worry is that it’ll take off as a gag gift and suddenly everyone will be putting out fragrances next year. Coming soon: Eau de Blog, featuring the magical essence of whiskey, Chinese food, and unwashed pajamas.

BK’s ad follows the CNN clip below. Exit question: Anyone tried this yet? I haven’t been to a Burger King in years so I don’t know if they’re selling it in their restaurants too or just online.

Beats me, but I do still need a gag gift for Christmas this year.

and we have a post on a cologne made by a fast food joint?

DUDE.

Cologne is a gift for guys, to make us smell better.
So ladies, is grilled meat a turn on?

rbj on December 19, 2008 at 12:36 PM

Yeah, in our obese society, why not a scent that evokes the images of bad fast food? I’m guessing that Michael Bloomberg is already pressing through legislation to get this product of the streets of NYC.

Don Draper, what a genius.

Lance Murdock on December 19, 2008 at 12:37 PM

So long as it’s an improvement to the way guys normally smell, I guess we all come out ahead.

TexasDan on December 19, 2008 at 12:38 PM

Why make a cologne, im sure you can get the same effect after eating, a value meal, and waiting about an hour for your body to digest it.

MDWNJ on December 19, 2008 at 12:38 PM

I haven’t eaten fast food like McDonald’s or Burger King for over a decade – I think the word ‘food’ is a stretch in those locales. That being said, this ad made me even less likely to want to do so.

Perhaps they need a version for women to wear.

Nah, most guys aren’t picky , women could smell like a landfill, and us guys would still be chasing them.

MDWNJ on December 19, 2008 at 12:43 PM

Don’t worry, AP. We’ve all pitched in and ordered you a case for Christmas. You’ll be the guy walking down the street with 10 dogs following you and trying to hump your leg.

Exactly. The smell you pick up from the store probably lasts longer.

Why not just buy a Whopper Jr. and rub in on your body?

You get the scent and a meal for .99 cents…

rbj on December 19, 2008 at 12:53 PM

…beer…good idea…thrown in the scent of vomit and that of a wet ashtray, and add a chemical string that fools my brain into thinking that it’s 2:00AM, and it’d make me feel like I was in my twenties again…I could repopulate the Sahara….

…or, you could make a spritz that makes the lady, fresh from the shower, smell like she’d smell after a night of hard, box-spring twanging sex….

…or, you could make a spray that smells like bacon…that’s work for 99.9% of the men and 100% of the dogs…a related species….

…and, I still think that the optimum stink for men out and about in the quest for horizontal refreshment is a spritz that make one smell either of leather upholstry or of old money…it should be sold with a taser, to help the fellow better organize his harem….

Puritan1648 on December 19, 2008 at 1:43 PM

Well, I’m back! Better now…

Wait a sec! I’m at seven months, and just the thought of that smell still makes me sick! Aargh!

…OK…pray, where would you rub it, exactly, that you’d then eat it?

(setting up a tasteless reply)

…and where would you rub the pickle?

The best part was the dogcatcher in the first video. More like dog bait.

Puritan1648 on December 19, 2008 at 1:48 PM

To answer the question of ‘where to rub’, does it matter?

I thought my original comment was tasteless enough.

Of course depending where you rub it, the pickle might get picked up later for a bit of a snack…

catmman on December 19, 2008 at 2:20 PM

But that is really, really, really WEIRD.
