    No, it's not the 1st of April.

    Buy it now while stocks last. I'll take mine with onion rings.

    That's just nasty.

    I had a friend who worked at Sonic a while back. When he came over wearing the same clothes he had on at work, it would almost make me gag.

    Why? Who wouldn't want to smell like a burger? Have you no sense of occasion? Seductive, aromatic... hot.

    In fact, I think I'll call my next child 'Whopper'.

    I honestly couldn't come up with a worse idea if I tried.

    Meanwhile, do you have to refrigerate the spray so it doesn't go rancid? :p

    It should be a time release spray. At first, the sensual smell of the whopper then, what's this french fries. Oh wait that's not all, is that the smell of a hot apple pie next? :eek:

    This is completely stupid. Go work at Burger King if you want to smell like a burger.

    Would it be inappropriate at this point to observe that, it's bad enough that meat-eaters taste worse than vegetarians, now they have to smell worse than them too? :eek: ;)

    Ahem, so I hear.

    Idiot consumers will buy this because they think it will make it a Whopper. ;)

    Adolph Whopper or Whopper Hilter? :eek:

    Am I the only one who loves the smell of burger? I'd be interested in smelling this, but I'd probably want to eat all day.

    The sad thing is, I'm really tempted to buy a few cans of this just beacuse it's so absurd...and can show people that it is indeed real.

    What a fantastically simple marketing gimmick. With very little effort or cost Burger King have made headlines around the world. And now I'm hungry. Clever :).

    GO to the site, hit the spray a couple times, and you get a nice moving waterfall. ;)

    I thought you were vegetarian. :confused:

    As someone who doesn't eat beef, nothing sickens me more than the thought or smell of a charbroiled hamburger.

    Great for the chubby chasers to seduce America's "larger" women.


    Just make sure you don't get any of that spray on your penis. Some woman may devour it.

    I am - I had a breakfast of some baked beans and vegetarian sausages instead - the advertising didn't work so well on me :D.

    Does BK actually have a vegetarian burger? I am oblivious :eek:.
