tender crisp bacon cheddar ranch appreciation thread

http://homepage.mac.com/jstansbury/iMovieTheater6.html

When the belly starts a rumbling and I'm jonesing for a treat

I close my eyes for a big surprise as the tender crisp bacon cheddar ranch

I love tender crisp bacon cheddar ranch - the breasts they grown on trees

and streams of bacon ranch dressing flow right up to your knees

there's tumbleweeds of bacon and cheddar paves the streets

folks don't fudge it cause you got the juice - there's a train of ladies coming with a nice caboose

never get in trouble never need an excuse

that's the tender crisp bacon cheddar ranch

i love the tender crisp bacon cheddar ranch no one tells you to behave

your wildest fantasies come true - Dallas cheerleaders give you shaves

where onions make you laugh and stare and french fries grow like weeds

you get to veg all day all the lottos tickets paid

there's a king that wants you to have it your way

that's the tender crisp bacon cheddar ranch

Bless you, my son.
This ranks right up there with the Quizno's "singing rat-things" for marketing pitches that somehow made it past the corporate suits and onto the airwaves, thereby enriching all of our lives.

When I first saw this commercial a week or so ago, my first thought was "That was odd."

I have yet to get one of these. I have seen that catchy commercial like 10x already, so it is my duty to go buy one now.

Thanks for the lyrics. I can't believe they got Hooty to sing that.

That commercial is so annoying. Ugh. And that king is creepy. Not as bad as the most recent "spammity calamity" AOL ad, but still pretty bad.

Yeah, well, I'm only 155 lbs. on a 6 ft. frame, and my cholesterol is sky high! So I do have to cut down on certain foods.

That whole *commercial* is creepy! It weirds me out somehow. Maybe I have issues....

LOL, though, I put a thread up at another forum earlier this same evening complaining that this commercial creeps me out.

Not familiar with this commercial, but had to comment on the product being discussed... is it just me or is fastfood getting out of hand lately? It seems like for a while they were really pushing the salads and smoothies, and now they're just saying f-it and coming out with stuff that's just raw gluttony. I saw a McD's sign the other day advertising a DOUBLE filet o' fish... isn't that just a tad excessive? Or what about the double quarter pounder... I think the slogan for that one is "Just pound one" or something along those lines.

I think the fast food joints are finally getting wise and realizing that nothing is too much for the American palate. I mean, if it ain't got bacon, ranch, or a lot of cheese as a main ingredient, forget about it!

Yup, it is. You know your career is over when you start doing Burger King commercials.

Tried one today

I was driving around today and I had that song stuck in my head when I was coming up on a BK. I pulled in and decided that I had to try this thing. I bought one and parked the car. First thing that I noticed is that the sandwich is HUGE. It is really thick and I could barely finish it. The only drawback was that the sauce put my tastebuds in overload. Overall, it was damn tasty

I think the Shaq Attack would have something to say about that.

Thats why they made the commercial!

So, as annoying and catchy as it is, it works!

I think the fast food chains have decided that salad-munchers aren't their core demographic. They sell to people hooked on meat and cheese, and the more the merrier. Considering how dangerous we now know this kind of food to be, it's really quite digusting what they're doing. I think what they're doing is nearly as reprehensible as what tobacco companies have been sued for.

Did anyone see the Carl's Jr spoof ad on "Real Time with Bill Maher" a couple weeks ago? It was for a sandwich about three feet high and stuffed with several hamburger patties, four different kinds of bacon, every deep fried side dish imaginable, country gravy, several normal-sized cheeseburgers stacked within, and topped off with about seven buns.
